EDO 2017


The Second Workshop on Processing Emotions, Decisions and Opinions (EDO 2017) will be held during LTC 2017 on November 17-19, 2017 in Poznan, Poland.

During recent several years Social Infrastructure has become irreversibly linked to such the Internet and its everyday manifestations, like Social Networking Services (Twitter, Facebook, etc.). Every second this new tangible information-based reality provides large amounts of data filled with 1) emotional expressions, 2) people's opinions on various topics, and 3) their reasoning revealing decision making processes. These three are also closely related to each other and as such should be studied closely together.

This, as never before, provides an opportunity for development and application of natural language processing methods, in particular those regarding such topics as emotion processing, decision making and opinion mining.

We would like to invite papers from researchers with the common interests in knowing more about ourselves and the world we live in by means of opinion and sentiment analysis, recommendations, Web mining, decision making, etc. We are also interested in gathering researchers working on emotions, psychology, sociology or ethics with Natural Language Processing tools.

We cordially invite experts, researchers and scholars in relevant fields to share their knowledge and join us in a constructive discussion on these topics.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Affect Analysis (and its applications)
Decisions and NLP
Ethics and NLP
Opinion Mining
Recommendation Systems
Sentiment Analysis
Social Informatics
Text mining techniques
Preference models
Knowledge acquisition
Pragmatics of decision making
Cognitive aspects of decisions and opinions
