Meeting Description:

The automatic detection of emotions in texts and the generation of texts that
express emotions is important for applications such as natural language
interfaces, e-learning environments, and educational or entertainment games.
These aspects are also important in opinion mining and sentiment analysis, and
in the larger area of affective computing.

This workshop will provide a forum for discussion between leading names and
researchers involved in processing emotions in the context of natural language
understanding, natural language generation, or applications in which
computational approaches to the processing of emotions are useful. Besides
methodologies and techniques for emotion analysis and generation, we also
encourage the submission of papers that experiment with and describe applicative
contexts in which analysis and detection of affective aspects are useful and

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- emotion analysis in sentences and documents;
- classification of texts by emotion and mood;
- the generation of sentences that express emotions;
- emotion processing across different languages;
- the analysis of sentiment and opinion that contains emotional aspects;
- argumentation that includes emotions and opinions;
- emotion analysis in automatic speech transcripts;
- applications in which affective aspects are beneficial;
- other aspects of the computational treatment of emotion and affect.
