    Just announced: The agenda for the 2015 Sentiment Analysis Symposium, July 15-16 in New York.

    The 2015 symposium will offer the same great content and networking as always — you’ll hear from agency and brand leaders, insights professionals, researchers, and technologists — this year expanded into two simultaneous tracks:

    • Presentations — an array of keynotes, presentations, and panels that explore business value in opinion, emotion, behavior, and connection — in online, social, and enterprise sources, in both text and other big data formats.
    • Workshops — longer-form deep dives into technologies and techniques — including metrics & measurement, cognitive computing, machine learning.

    Mix and match program segments — whatever suits your background and interests.

    New this year: A half-day segment (within the Workshop track) on Sentiment Analysis for Financial Markets. Our 40th-floor conference venue at the New York Academy of Sciences overlooks Wall Street, so this segment is a well-placed addition to the symposium’s coverage of consumer, public, and social for market research, customer experience, healthcare, government, and other application areas.

    Who’ll be presenting? Here’s a thought-leader sampling:

    • Industry analysts Dave Schubmehl from IDC and Anjali Lai from Forrester.
    • Agency folks Francesco D’Orazio from Face, Brook Mille from MotiveQuest, and Karla Wachter, Waggener Edstrom.
    • Technical innovators including Bethany Bengtson from Bottlenose, Moritz Sudhof from Kanjoya, Karo Moilanen from TheySay, and CrowdFlower CEO Lukas Biewald.
    • Speakers on sentiment analysis in healthcare from the Advisory Board Company, Westat, and DSE Analytics.
    • A set of forward-looking talks on wearables, speech analytics, emotional response via facial recognition, and virtual assistants.

    Presenting the longer-form workshops, running in parallel with the presentations, we’ll have:

    • Prof. Bing Liu, presenting a half-day Sentiment Analysis tutorial.
    • Dr. Robert Dale on Natural Language Generation.
    • Sue Feldman, Synthexis, on Cognitive Computing.
    • Research leader Steve Rappaport on Metrics and Measurement.
    • … and more that we’ll share soon.

    As usual, we’ll have a set of lightning talks — quick takes on technologies, solutions, and services — and lots of networking opportunities.
