Challenge took place at ESWC 2014 and 2015, we decided to plan in advance
the activities for the next edition that will take place in Crete from May
29th to June 2nd 2016.

next year challenge, and to collect feedback about the tasks that we want

Our idea is to great a group (or a mailing list) with all interested people.
We would also ask you to forward this email to all people that you know

Concerning publication aspects, we are organizing the second edition of the
workshop on semantic sentiment analysis that would take place at ESWC 2016

- a short presentation at the workshop and a publication in the workshop
proceedings (CEUR-WS);
- a publication of an extended version as book chapter published by
Springer as we already did in 2014 and 2015;
- for selected system, an invitation to a special issue on top rank journal
(based on the number of submissions and of the kind of systems, 2 different
special issues on 2 different journals might be arranged).

Finally, concerning sponsoring, Springer will support the challenge with an
award for every proposed task.
Beside this, we are working with companies interested in sentiment analysis
tasks to see if there is any chance to have further special awards.

Thank you very much for your time and hope to hear from you soon.
Kind regards.
