User database of the internet is expanding at a swift rate with the dramatic growth of social media. These include information as well as personal opinions about products, ideas, news, politics, etc. These online opinions and reviews act as a word-to-mouth medium for enhancing or diminishing the popularity of a product, item or concept. Thus, automated analysis of the tone of online opinions helps customers and business personnel significantly to make decisions and develop strategies efficiently. This task, known as sentiment analysis, is an area of active research that relies heavily on the text processing methodology called word embedding. Word embedding is a process of representing text into numeric format, to enable mathematical operations on them. The talk proposed a method of enhancing the performance of word embedding approaches, by integrating sentiment-based information, to render them more suitable for sentiment analysis.

The two-day conference was inaugurated by the Chief Guest, Shri Sandesh Nayak, (IAS), Commissioner College Education, Government of Rajasthan.

Dr. Mishra acknowledged the support and motivation extended by Prof. Achyuta Samanta, Founder, KIIT & KISS.
