Submissions are invited for a special session on Brain Inspired Opinion Mining and Sentiment Analysis (BIOMSA) to be held within the 2012 IEEE International Conference on Cognitive Informatics & Cognitive Computing (ICCI*CC), taking place from 22nd to 24th August in Kyoto (Japan).

Due to many challenging research problems and a wide variety of practical applications, opinion mining and sentiment analysis have become very active research areas in the last decade. Our understanding and knowledge of the problem and its solution are limited as natural language understanding techniques are still pretty weak. Most of current research in sentiment analysis, in fact, merely relies on machine learning algorithms. Such algorithms, despite most of them being very effective, produce no human understandable results such that we know little about how and why output values are obtained. All such approaches, moreover, rely on syntactical structure of text, which is far from the way human mind processes natural language. The main aim of this special session is to examine the new frontiers of opinion mining and sentiment analysis by proposing brain inspired techniques that could allow to better extract and aggregate the cognitive and affective information associated with natural language text.

The special session will provide an international forum for both researchers and entrepreneurs working in the field of opinion mining to share information on their latest investigations in social information retrieval and their applications in academic research areas and industrial sectors. The broader context of the special session comprehends Web Mining, AI, Semantic Web, Information Retrieval, and Natural Language Processing. In addition to paper presentations, organizers plan to solicit an invited talk or a panel that will stress the interdisciplinary challenges of opinion mining and sentiment analysis. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
•  Brain inspired sentiment identification & classification
•  Brain inspired sentiment summarization & visualization
•  Brain inspired opinion search & retrieval
•  Brain inspired topic detection & trend discovery
•  Brain inspired sentiment corpora & annotation
•  Brain inspired applications to new social media
•  Brain inspired affective knowledge acquisition & representation
•  Brain inspired sentiment tracking
•  Brain inspired affect structures & models
•  Brain inspired comparative opinion analysis
•  Brain inspired cross-lingual sentiment analysis
•  Brain inspired sentiment elicitation from events
•  Brain inspired business intelligence applications

•  March 19th, 2012: Due date for Special Session papers
•  April 30th, 2012: Notification of paper acceptance to authors
•  May 31st, 2012: Camera-ready of accepted papers
•  August 22nd, 2012: Special Session date

The session number (SS4) must be shown in front of the title of each submission. Papers have to be submitted to both EasyChair and BIOMSA organizers, in order to track their reviews.
Accepted papers will be published in IEEE ICCI*CC proceedings. Selected, expanded versions of papers presented at the session will be published in special issues of the International Journal of Cognitive Informatics and Natural Intelligence (IJCINI) and the International Journal of Software Science and Computational Intelligence (IJSSCI).
