SEPLN 2015 workshop on:
Sentiment Analysis at SEPLN
(TASS 2015)

Sep 15th, 2014
Alicante, Spain


TASS is an experimental evaluation workshop for sentiment analysis and
online reputation analysis focused on Spanish language, organized as a
satellite event of the annual SEPLN Conference. After three successful
editions in 2012, 2013 and 2014, TASS 2015 will be held on September 15th,
2015 at University of Alicante, Spain.

The aim of TASS is to provide a forum for the discussion and communication
where the latest research work and developments in the field of sentiment
analysis in social media, specifically focused on Spanish language, can be
shown and discussed by scientific and business communities. The main
objective is to promote the application of existing state-of-the-art
algorithms and techniques and the design of new ones. These complex
sentiment analysis and text classification systems will work with short text
opinions extracted from social media messages (specifically Twitter).

Several challenge tasks are proposed with the aim of providing a benchmark
forum for comparing the latest approaches in these fields. In addition, with
the creation and release of the fully tagged corpus, we aim to provide a
benchmark dataset that enables researchers to compare their algorithms and

Two tasks are proposed to the participants covering two different levels
of analyses.

*** Task 1: Sentiment Analysis at global level ***

This task consists on performing an automatic sentiment analysis to
determine the global polarity of each message in the test set of the General
corpus. This task is a reedition of the task in the previous
years. Participants will be provided with the training set of the General
corpus so that they may train and validate their models.

There will be two different evaluations: one based on 6 different polarity
labels (P+, P, NEU, N, N+, NONE) and another based on just 4 labels (P, N,

Participants are expected to submit (up to 3) experiments for the 6-labels
evaluation, but are also allowed to submit (up to 3) specific experiments
for the 4-labels scenario.

Accuracy (correct tweets according to the gold standard) will be used for
ranking the systems. Precision, recall and F1-measure will be used to
evaluate each individual category.

*** Task 2: Aspect-based sentiment analysis ***

Participants will be provided with a corpus tagged with a series of aspects,
and systems must identify the polarity at the aspect-level. Training and
test sets for two corpora will be provided: the Social-TV corpus, used last
year, and the new Politics corpus, collected this year (both described
