On social media, users nowadays freely express what is on their mind at any moment in time,at any location, and about virtually anything. These large amounts of spontaneously producedtexts open up a unique opportunity to learn more about social media users, e.g., predictingsocio-demographic variables (age, gender, profession, education), personality types, as well asemotions and opinion expressions. Indeed, this excellent opportunity has materialized in alarge and growing number of recent workshops held at different Natural Language Processing,Artificial Intelligence, Semantic Web, and Information Retrieval venues, for example WASSA(focusing on sentiment and social media), PAN (focusing on author profiling like personality) and ESSEM (focusing on emotions in AI), including the organization of shared tasks such asat SemEval with a special sentiment track. However, such aspects of human personality andbehavior have been mostly studied in isolation, often in different—but related—communities.PEOPLES aims at bringing these diverse communities a step closer to each other, to studypeople’s traits and expressions jointly and in their interplay.

Indeed, the traits in the focus of PEOPLES can be seen as characterizing the whole personand should be studied together. Contextually, one should study how their interaction, andtheir computational modelling impact both natural language processing and society. This alsoin view of recent active discussions regarding ethical and bias-related aspects in NLP, whichstrongly relate to the traits that the PEOPLES workshop focuses on.

Call For Paper

We will encourage the submission of long (8 pages) and short (4 pages) research papers,including opinion statements. We will especially welcome views from different fields, and willwelcome submissions related but not limited to the following topics:

  • opinion, personality and emotion detection in social media
  • opinions, personality and emotions and their interactions
  • interaction between personality, opinion and emotions with socio-demographic variables
  • interaction between personality, opinion and emotions and geo-spatial information
  • interaction between socio-demographic, personality, opinion and emotions with politics
  • analysis of social networks with attributes (e.g. socio-demographic attributes or opinions)
  • modeling of personality, opinion and emotions from a multimodal perspective
  • multilingual approaches to demographic inference from social media
  • multilingual approaches to opinion, emotions and personality detection
  • cross-cultural analysis of opinion, emotions, personality in multilingual social media data
  • applications of predictive modeling of user traits
  • bias-related issues, and the ethics of predictive modeling of user attributes
