For more than two decades, the International World-Wide Web Conference has been the premier venue for researchers, academics, businesses, and standard bodies to come together and discuss latest updates on the state and evolutionary path of the Web. This is a prestigious and exciting venue, and one where language technologies can play a crucial role; in fact, the best paper award at 2013 was won by a bunch of "ACL-ers"!

The conference has 11 tracks. The Content Analysis track welcomes submissions of original, high-quality research papers related to the extraction of information --- broadly construed to include factual, subjective, social, behavioral, personal, historical, and economic knowledge ----- expressed in whole or in part in natural-language format in any manner of on-line source. We encourage submissions both on techniques for performing this extraction and on insights gained from analysis facilitated by this extraction.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following (listed in no particular order), especially as they resonate with the spirit expressed in the previous paragraph:

* Language-analysis techniques
* Bridging unstructured and structured data
* Multi-lingual and cross-lingual settings
* Sentiment analysis and opinion mining
* Information diffusion
* Normalization, clustering, classification, and summarization of text and natural-language items (broadly construed)
* Insights from natural-language analysis of social media
* Novel applications
