CALL FOR PAPERS

The First International Workshop on Opinion Mining for
Business Intelligence (OMBI'10)

Co-located with The 2010 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conferences
on Web Intelligence (WI'2010) and Intelligent Agent Technology(IAT'2010)

August 31, 2010, Toronto, Canada

Website: http://www.yorku.ca/xhyu/OMBI10/
***********************************************************************

With the rapid growth of Web 2.0, the Internet has become an excellent source for gathering the voice of the public. People are now encouraged to post reviews of products or express their views on almost everything on bulletin boards, Internet forums, news groups, etc. These word-of-mouth discussions provide valuable source of knowledge for both information promulgators and readers. However, it is an extremely daunting and time-consuming task for the users to sift through the sheer volume of user-generated content in order to distill useful knowledge and then act accordingly.

The academic community as well as practitioners have recognized the importance of opinion mining, and are working on various approaches to facilitate automated opinion analysis and knowledge discovery from user-generated contents. The research on opinion mining is highly inter-disciplinary and its success depends on advances in all related fields. As such, this workshop aims to provide a forum to foster the communication and interaction between researchers and practitioners from all related computer science, business, and social science disciplines, including but not limited to, data mining, information retrieval, Web, natural language processing, marketing, an linguistics.

Suggested topics of this workshop include, but are not limited to:

Opinion retrieval, extraction, categorization, and summarization
Topic-sentiment analysis
Sentiment identification and filtering
Domain-driven opinion mining and sentiment analysis
Economic value of user-generated contents
Recommender systems
Evaluation methodologies
Performance issues, scalability and efficiency
Applications in different contexts (e.g., politics, business intelligence, sociology, and marketing research)
Benchmarks

=============================================
Proceedings and post-workshop publications
=============================================

The Workshop proceedings volume will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press, to be indexed by EI. All accepted contributions will be included in the volume. The best papers from the workshop may get the recommendation and support from members of the Program Committee to submit extended versions of their work to leading journals in the field.

===================================================
Submission procedure and instructions for authors
===================================================

Regular research papers reporting original scientific results, as well as vision and work-in-progress papers that have the potential to stimulate debate on existing solutions or identify emerging challenges are encouraged. All submitted papers will be reviewed by program committee members on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance, and clarity. Paper submissions should be limited to a maximum of 4 pages (only one additional page is allowed and extra payment is required for the additional page). The papers must be in English and should be formatted according to the IEEE 2-column format (see the Author Guidelines at http://www.yorku.ca/wiiat10/submissions.php). The workshop only accepts on-line submissions. Please use the Workshop Submission Page on the WI-IAT'2010 website to submit your paper. The authors of accepted contributions will be asked to submit final version and register for the conference.
