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
Conference Site: https://2019.eswc-conferences.org/

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 Detection."
