Our paper on Brand-related Events Detection, Classification and Summarization on Twitter has been accepted for presentation at the IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence (WI), which will be held in Macau at the beginning of December 2012.
In this work, we propose a method for, given a topic, detecting novel popular themes, i.e. events, in Twitter concerning that topic, summarizing these events by means of a concise yet meaningful representation, and assessing the prevalent sentiment polarity associated with each event, i.e., positive vs. negative.
