In the age of multimedia and social network, there is a rapid growth in user generated data, which needs to be analyzed, processed to understand the user subjective perception. Sentiment analysis is the field of study that analyzes people's opinions, sentiments, evaluations, attitudes, and emotions from written language. The Affective Computing is the study and development of systems and devices that can recognize, interpret, process, and simulate human affects. It is a new ways of bringing together Emotion AI and other affective technologies in order to make people's lives better. As the rapid growth of user-generated data from social networks, wikis and social tagging systems, it is necessary to understand the high-level semantics and user subjective perceptions from such a large volume of data. Emotions or sentiments are one of the most important aspects as the user-generated data are always with emotional loads of their creators. Along with the development of the computational techniques for sentiment analysis and opinion mining, the increasing psychological and cognitive models/theories are exploited for modeling sentiments and emotions by incorporating with social computing techniques such as social network and personalization, mining user reviews, user profiling in social network and so on. Connecting affective/sentimental models and social computing techniques not only can facilitate the understanding big data in at semantic-levels but also improve the performance of various social computing applications in the big data era. It combines affective/sentimental models with social computing as a promising direction and offers opportunities for developing novel algorithms, methods and tools.

This special issue will be a platform to researchers to provide the opportunity to address the recent trends in “Sentiment Analysis and Affective computing in Multimedia Data on Social Network”. This issue will also promote significant research contributions by scholars and scientist worldwide included specific topics. This will be also a good reference to the professional in this area of research, target to present, endorse and discuss current research.
