Call For Paper: Fifth International Workshop at ESWC on Sentic Computing,
Sentiment Analysis, Opinion mining and Emotion Detection @ ESWC2019
Dates: June 2nd 2019
Venue: Portoroz, Slovenia
Hashtag: #SentimentAnalysis
Conference Site:
Workshop Site:

As the Web rapidly evolves, people are becoming increasingly enthusiastic
about interacting, and collaborating through social networks, online
communities, blogs, wikis, and the like. In recent years, this collective
intelligence has spread to many different areas, with particular focus on
fields related to everyday life such as commerce, tourism, education, and
health, causing the size of the social Web to expand exponentially. To
identify the emotions (e.g. sentiment polarity, sadness, happiness, anger,
irony, sarcasm, etc.) and the modality (e.g. doubt, certainty, obligation,
liability, desire, etc.) expressed in this continuously growing content is
critical to enable the correct interpretation of the opinions expressed or
reported about social events, political movements, company strategies,
marketing campaigns, product preferences, etc.
Existing solutions still have many limitations leaving the challenge of
emotions and modality analysis open. Additionally, the joint treatment of
modality and emotion is, computationally, trailing behind, and therefore
the focus of ongoing, current research. The hybridization of NLP techniques
with Semantic Web technologies is a direction that is being explored to
overcome such limitations.
This workshop aims at addressing the above mentioned challenges by
providing a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss, exchange
and disseminate their solutions.

The Workshop will be connected to the ESWC 2019 Semantic Sentiment Analysis
Challenge at ESWC2019. Both the Workshop and the Challenge can benefit from
a Google Group, called Semantic Sentiment Analysis Initiative. Please post
messages related to the Workshop under the discussion "ESWC 2019 Workshop
on Sentic Computing, Sentiment Analysis, Opinion mining and Emotion
