Call For Papers

Social Media {eg Twitter, Blogs, Forums, FaceBook} has exploded over the last few years. FaceBook is now the second most visited site on the Web, with Blogger being the 7th and Twitter the 13th. These sites contain the aggregated beliefs and opinions of millions of people on an epic range of topics, and in a large number of languages.

The workshop is intended to be a venue for people to meet and talk about Social Media and Human Language Technologies. Submissions can describe work-in-progress, resources, position papers as well as traditional unpublished work.

As an experiment in using Social Media, we intend using Google Wave to organise the workshop. Contact authors of accepted papers will be given Wave accounts (subject to availability).

Suggested topics for this workshop include, and are not limited to:

* Social Media as resources for Computational Linguistics (eg language models, opinions).
* How Computational Linguistics can help Social Media (eg translating Tweets, generating Social Media).
* Data: corpora of Social Media as standard resources.
* Algorithms for computing summary statistics over terabytes of unstructured, noisy data.
* Text prediction and forecasting: modelling the aggregated beliefs about concrete outcomes in the world (eg stock prices, prediction markets).
* Sentiment prediction in the large (modelling the changing beliefs of people about political figures over time, measuring buy/sell signals in trading forums).
* Relationships between new and old media (how does one affect the other, what are lagging and leading indicators).
* Tracking information flow across sources.
* Real-time trending (measuring and tracking pandemic spread).
* Topic and event detection (email fraud, market manipulation).
* Community dynamics and social network analysis.
