[ntcir:281] NTCIR-7 Multilingual Opinion Analysis Task Call for Participation

NTCIR-7 Multilingual Opinion Analysis Task Call for Participation

Sentiment and opinion analysis has been an active area of natural
language processing research lately.  There are many applications from
product research to automated public opinion survey creation,
opinionated summarization to intention analysis for natural language

In the 2007 NTCIR-6 Workshop we held a pilot task for sentence-level
opinion analysis.  At NTCIR-7 we will hold a second run of the opinion
analysis evaluation for Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), English,
and Japanese for identifying opinions expressed at a sub-sentence
level as well as the opinion holders and opinion targets.
