5th International Workshop on

Satellite of LREC 2014, ELRA, 1.5 Day Workshop on 26/27 May 2014
Reykjavik, Iceland

The fifth instalment of the highly successful series of Corpora for Research
on Emotion held at the last LRECs (2006, 2008, 2010, 2012) will help
bridging the gap between research on human emotion, social signals and
sentiment from speech, text, and further modalities, and low availability of
language and multimodal resources and labelled data for learning and

Following LREC 2014\u2019s hot topics of Big Data and Linked Open Data in
particular also approaches on semi-automated and collaborative labelling of
large data archives such as by efficient combinations of active learning and
crowd sourcing will be of interest \u2013 in particular also for combined
annotations of emotion, social signals, and sentiment. Multi- and
cross-corpus studies (transfer learning, standardisation, corpus quality
assessment, etc.) are further highly relevant, given their importance in
order to test the generalisation power of models.

Linked Open Data is an increasingly wide-spread methodology for the
publishing, sharing and interlinking of data sets. In the context of this
workshop we are also interested in reports on and experiences with the use
of Linked Open Data in the context of emotion, social signals, and sentiment
in analysis projects and applications.

As before, also the multimodal community is invited and encouraged to
contribute new corpora, perspectives and findings \u2013 emotion, sentiment,
and social behaviour are multimodal and complex and there is still an urgent
need for sufficient naturalistic uni- and multimodal data in different
languages and from different cultures.

Keynote speeches by distinguished researchers and technical demonstrations
crossing the communities involved will contribute to the attractiveness of
the workshop. A best paper award will be given.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

Novel corpora of affective speech in audio and multimodal data
Corpora of written language/multimodal data for sentiment analysis
Corpora of audio/multimodal data of behaviour and social signals
Interlinking resources with Linked Data
Techniques for integration and merging of different resources
Use of Linked Open Data knowledge resources (DBpedia, Yago, etc.)
New methods for community or distributed annotation
Semi-autonomous learning on Big Data
Resources and analysis of social emotions (shame, pride, etc.)
Figurative languages (irony, metaphor, parody, sarcasm, satire, etc.)
Social signals (consents, laughs, sighs, hesitations, etc.)
Discussion of models for annotation and representation
Multi- and cross-corpus aspects (transfer learning, standardization)
Real-life applications of language and multimodal resources
Long-term resources, situational and demographic context inclusion
Resources for under-represented languages and cultures
Publishing as Linguistic Linked Data (e.g. lemon, Marl, Onyx, NIF)
Legal and social aspects of semantic and language resources
Cultural bias and normalisation in expression and social signalling

Submission Policy
Submitted abstracts of papers for oral and poster must consist of about
1500-2000 words. Final submissions must follow the submission guidelines
at LREC 2014

Regular papers (8 pages)
Short papers (4 pages)
Demo papers (2-4 pages)

When submitting a paper from the START page, authors will be asked to
provide essential information about resources (in a broad sense, i.e. also
technologies, standards, evaluation kits, etc.) that have been used for the
work described in the paper or are a new result of your research. Moreover,
ELRA encourages all LREC authors to share the described LRs (data, tools,
services, etc.), to enable their reuse, replicability of experiments,
including evaluation ones, etc...
