Call for Abstracts for a special session on NLP for the Social Sciences

In recent years, the field of natural language processing (NLP) has
experienced a renewed interest in the analysis of non "factual"
discourse, which is characterised by the presence of affective language,
sentiments, opinions, feelings, believes, and manifestations of emotional
states, and which is charged with subjectivity. There are not only interesting
theoretical issues which deserve scientific study such as what makes a
discourse subjective, or how to discriminate between emotional states in
text or speech, but also practical applications (e.g., dialogue
systems, question answering, summarization, extraction) may benefit from
those studies. Thus, we are calling for contributions which will bring
together the areas of Natural Language Processing and the Social Sciences.

Main Topics:
- Natural Language Processing in Psychology
- Electronic Language Resources for the Social Sciences (e.g., dictionaries,
lexicons, grammars)
- Natural Language Processing of non-factual Discourse
- Natural Language Processing in the analysis of Political Discourse
- Automatic Analysis of Emotional Discourse
- Automatic Detection of Sentiments and Opinions
- Other topics related to the study and application of NLP to psychology and
more generally the social sciences

Format of Submission:
At this stage we are soliciting abstracts (in pdf) of between 1000-1500 words.
The abstract should include:
- Title
- Authors and affiliations
- Contact e-mail
- 1000-1500 words (about 4 pages) including text, figures, and tables
- References

Language of the abstract: English or Spanish

Detailed submission instructions will be specified together with notifications
to the authors.

Workshop Dates: 10th May - 14th May 2010.
Submission date: 4th January 2010
Notification to the Authors (accept/reject letters): 26 February 2010
Camera Ready Copy: 26 March 2010

Where to submit your contribution:

Send your pdf abstract by e-mail to Dr. Horacio Saggion
(at http://www.dcs.shef.ac.uk/~saggion you will find the address where to send
your contribution).
The subject of your e-mail should be "NLP4PSYCHO abstract".
