SCOPE
***************************************************************************************************************

The aim of the 4th  Workshop on Computational Approaches to 
Subjectivity, Sentiment and Social Media Analysis (WASSA 2013) is to 
continue the line of the previous three editions, bringing together 
researchers in Computational Linguistics working on Subjectivity and 
Sentiment Analysis and researchers working on interdisciplinary aspects 
of affect computation from text. Additionally, this year, we would like 
to extend the focus to Social Media phenomena and the impact of 
affect-related phenomena in this context.
We encourage the submission of long and short research and demo papers 
including, but not restricted to the following topics related to 
subjectivity, sentiment and social media analysis:
.    Resources for subjectivity, sentiment and social media analysis; 
(semi-)automatic corpora generation and annotation
.    Opinion retrieval, extraction, categorization, aggregation and 
summarization
.    Trend detection in social media using subjectivity and sentiment 
analysis techniques
.    Data linking through social networks based on affect-related NLP 
methods
.    Impact of affective data from social media
.    Mass opinion estimation based on NLP and statistical models
.    Online reputation management
.    Topic and sentiment studies and applications of topic-sentiment 
analysis
.    Domain, topic and genre dependency of sentiment analysis
.    Ambiguity issues and word sense disambiguation of subjective language
.    Pragmatic analysis of the opinion mining task
.    Use of Semantic Web technologies for subjectivity and sentiment 
analysis
.    Improvement of NLP tasks using subjectivity and/or sentiment analysis
.    Intrinsic and extrinsic evaluations subjectivity and sentiment 
analysis
.    Subjectivity, sentiment and emotion detection in social networks
.    Classification of stance in dialogues
.    Applications of sentiment and social media analysis systems
