EACL 2012 Workshop
Computational Approaches to Deception Detection
April 23, 2012 – Avignon, France

The Workshop on Computational Approaches to Deception Detection will be held in conjunction with the 13th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (EACL 2012), which will take place from April 23 to 27, 2012, in Avignon, France.
About the workshop
The Deception Detection workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers who deal with deception detection from different perspectives, including psychology, neuroscience, and human-computer interaction. We anticipate that it will advance the creation of tools to support deception detection and other applications in forensics, including the creation of corpora containing deceptive and truthful language, the annotation of corpora for linguistic markers of deception, the annotation of corpora for ground truth, and classification methodologies tuned to small data sets. In addition, the workshop will open up a relatively new area of applied computational linguistics that has broad applications in business fraud and online misrepresentation, as well police and security work.
