This paper describes TASS, an experimental evaluation workshop within SEPLN to foster the research in the field of sentiment analysis in social media, specifically focused on Spanish language. The main objective is to promote the application of existing state-of-the-art algorithms and techniques and the design of new ones for the implementation of complex systems able to perform a sentiment analysis based on short text opinions extracted from social media messages (specifically Twitter) published by representative personalities. The paper presents the proposed tasks, the contents, format and main statistics of the generated corpus, the participant groups and their different approaches, and, finally, the overall results achieved.
