Call For Papers

You are invited to participate in the first CL-Aff Shared Task, to be held as a part of the Affective Content Analysis workshop @ AAAI 2019. In the quest to understand user expression, we propose a task focusing on one facet of human affect - happiness. We contribute a new labeled corpus of happy moments and pose two novel challenges to spur the development of supervised and semi-supervised approaches to model human affect.

The data is available at our Git repository: https://github.com/kj2013/claff-happydb/
Submission Site: https://easychair.org/conferences/conference_dir.cgi?a=19604803
Everyone who participates, gets to present at least a poster and have their paper in our CEUR-WS proceedings.
