Co-located with COLING 2016, Osaka, Japan

Please join us at PEOPLES, the first Workshop on Computational Modeling 
of People’s Opinions, Personality and Emotions in Social Media.

*** *News*

- The program and proceedings are now available (see below)
- The workshop starts at a _special time_ (12.30!)

*** *Schedule, proceedings, and registration*

The workshop program (including keynote, oral sessions and posters) is 
available at:


The contributions cover a wide range of topics related to the three main 
PEOPLES themes (personality, emotion and opinion), their interaction and 
the impact of their modeling on social aspects like well-being, 
political preferences, humor and language use. We were pleased to see 
papers discussing different approaches to modeling, such as active 
learning, distant supervision, multi-task learning, experimental studies 
with participants, and dealing with different data, including speech 
input and resources from multiple languages. The proceedings are 
downloadable from the PEOPLES website: 
<https://peoples2016.github.io/peoples2016.pdf>, and are going to appear 
in the ACL anthology soon.

You can register for PEOPLES (category “half-day workshop”) via the 
COLING website:


This might be the first in a series of workshops that brings together 
researchers in Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing 
who share an interest in personality, opinion and emotion detection, and 
especially in researching the intertwining of such traits and expressions.
