A reminder --

The Sentiment Analysis Symposium (http://sentimentsymposium.com/) takes 
place next week, May 7-8 2013, in New York. This is a business-focused 
conference with strong academic/research, as well as practitioner, 
participation. The focus is technologies that mine emotions, opinions, and 
attitudes from social, online, and enterprise sources, for analysis in 
conjuction with other social, transactional, personal, and 
business-operations data.

The Wednesday, May 8 symposium will be preceded by two optional, half-day 
sessions on Tuesday, May 7: A Research & Innovation session and a 
Practical Sentiment Analysis tutorial, the latter taught by Prof. Ronen 
Feldman of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

We offer a 50% discount to academic & government attendees (registration 
code GOVACAD) and have a special rate for full-time students, $100 for the 
symposium and $50 for each of the optional sessions (contact me).
