PEOPLES 2020 : 3rd WORKSHOP ON COMPUTATIONAL MODELING OF PEOPLE'S OPINIONS, PERSONALITY, AND EMOTIONS IN SOCIAL MEDIA

Co-located with COLING 2020, Barcelona, Spain

On social media, users nowadays freely express what is on their mind at any moment in time, at any location, and about virtually anything. These large amounts of spontaneously produced texts open up a unique opportunity to learn more about language use in connection with socio-demographic as well as opinion-related variables. However, such variables have been mostly studied in isolation, often in different - but related - communities. PEOPLES aims at bringing these diverse communities a step closer to each other, to study people's traits and expressions jointly and in their interplay. This fosters studies on their interaction, and on how their computational modelling impacts both NLP and society. This is important also in light of recent active discussions regarding ethical and bias-related aspects in NLP. PEOPLES 2020 would be the continuation of successful editions that were held at COLING 2016 and NAACL 2018, by continuing to provide a forum for researchers who share an interest in personality, opinion and emotion detection, as well as the impact of this work on society.

Call for Papers:

We encourage the submission of both long and short research papers as well as opinion statements. We will especially welcome views from different fields, and will welcome submissions related but not limited to the following topics:
- opinion, personality and emotion detection in social media
- opinions, personality and emotions and their interactions
- interaction between personality, opinion and emotions with socio-demographic variables
- interaction between personality, opinion and emotions and geo-spatial information
- interaction between socio-demographic, personality, opinion and emotions with politics
- analysis of social networks with attributes (e.g. socio-demographic attributes or opinions)
- modeling of personality, opinion and emotions from a multimodal perspective
- multilingual approaches to demographic inference from social media
- multilingual approaches to opinion, emotions and personality detection
- cross-cultural analysis of opinion, emotions, personality in multilingual social media data
- applications of predictive modeling of user traits
- bias-related issues, and the ethics of predictive modeling of user attributes

***UPDATE:*** We also welcome research that focuses on how the usual PEOPLES dimensions might have changed or might be changing due to the special COVID-related circumstances. For example, how relevant traits and their linguistic representations might have changed.
