Sentiment/Social/SignalsA reminder --

The Sentiment Analysis Symposium takes place next week, May 7-8 2013, in New York. This is a business-focused conference with strong academic/research, practitioner, and industry participation. The focus is technologies that mine emotions, opinions, and attitudes from social, online, and enterprise sources, for analysis in conjunction with other social, transactional, personal, and business-operations data.

The Wednesday, May 8 symposium will be preceded by two optional, half-day sessions on Tuesday, May 7: A Research & Innovation session and a Practical Sentiment Analysis tutorial, the latter taught by Prof. Ronen Feldman of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

We offer a 50% discount to academic & government attendees (registration code GOVACAD) and have a special rate for full-time students, $100 for the symposium and $50 for each of the optional sessions (contact sas (at) altaplana.com).
