Special Session on Sentiment Analysis in Social Media (SASM)

The 37th International Conference on Industrial, Engineering & Other Applications of Applied Intelligent Systems (IEA/AIE 2024), Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic, July 10 – July 12, 2024


The World Wide Web ushered in the development of websites and social networks, which have gradually become the main channels of information where people post and share their opinions on social issues. These opinions become a meaningful data source for policy-makers, investors, manufacturers, celebrities, and users. For example, the sentiments expressed in citizens’ views indicate to policy-makers whether their policies are suitable for the people, whether the people agree with and support them, and whether they would have to make adjustments to meet the needs of the people. By analyzing the sentiment expressed in users’ opinions about products, manufacturers develop an impression of whether their products are welcomed, whether consumers are dissatisfied and whether aspects of the products are rated as excellent or inadequate. Based on these impressions, they improve the quality and design of products to be more suitable for consumers’ tastes. For the users themselves, a psychological analysis expressed in the form of opinions by other users about a product enables them to identify products that meet their requirements. From that, they can make more effective decisions regarding product selection. Therefore, “Sentiment analysis is increasingly viewed as a vital task both from an academic and a commercial standpoint.” Accordingly, various methods have been proposed to develop and improve the performance of sentiment analysis, such as lexicon-based, machine learning, deep learning, graph neural networks, and hybrid. However, sentiment analysis still has many challenges.

Such justifications motivated us to propose the SASM session. We welcome the original, advanced, and state-of-the-art theoretical and applied contributions to the Sentiment Analysis field and its relevant issues.
