NAACL 2016 Workshop on Computational Approaches to Deception Detection

We are pleased to announce the workshop on Computational Approaches to Deception Detection to be held in conjunction with the main NAACL-HLT 2016 conference in San Diego, California on June 12-17, 2016.


Since the early 20th century, a number of technologies have been developed for deception detection, primarily aimed at the identification and the analysis of cues possibly associated with false statements. The cues have varied widely, ranging from physiological measurements to non-verbal and verbal behaviors.

Several areas of natural language processing, including text classification, spoken language processing, sentiment analysis, and discourse are now addressing the descriptive criteria associated with deception. New approaches also present the opportunity to combine information from different modalities.

In 2012 we organized a full-day workshop entitled »Computational Approaches to Deception Detection» for the EACL meeting in Avignon, France. Since then, there has been growing interest in deception detection among the computational linguistics community.

2nd Call for Papers:

Target Audience:

We welcome contributions from the NLP community as well as participation from researchers who follow a multimodal approach and who deal with deception detection from different perspectives, including psychology, neuroscience, and human-computer interaction, in order to stress the applicability of the methods in many specific domains.
