workshop, The Universitat Pompeu Fabra and The Barcelona Media Innovation

World Wide Web Conference WWW-2009 to be held in Madrid.

The general topic of this workshop is the analysis of the content generated
users in the web 2.0. This first year, the content is restricted to text.
different paper modalities will be considered for the workshop:

- General papers:

- Shared task papers:
Papers describing research work and results related to any of the following
three shared tasks will be considered:
1. Text normalization
2. Sentiment and opinion analysis
3. Misbehavior Detection

For those teams participating in any of the shared tasks, there will be a
set of
data available for training and testing in order to be able to compare the
results produced by different teams. It is important to know that the paper
submission deadline will be previous to the test data release date. In this
sense, the paper should report all the work done with the training dataset.
After paper acceptance, results on test data can be added to the final
of the manuscript without exceeding the eight page limit. .

Each workshop submission will be evaluated by two or three evaluators. A
review process will be followed, so author's names and direct references to
author's previous works should be avoided in the first version of the
manuscript. We are attempting to organize an independent program committee
each shared task and paper modality.

Papers will be evaluated according to their technical soundness as well as
originality and innovative contributions to the field. Paper length should
exceed eight pages. See the submissions page, for the conditions to submit
