In this paper, we present the system we have developed for participating in the second task of the i2b2/VA 2011 challenge dedicated to emotion detection in clinical records. On the official evaluation, we ranked 6th out of 26 participants. Our best configuration, based upon a combination of both a machine-learning based approach and manually-defined transducers, obtained a 0.5383 global F-measure, while the distribution of the other 26 participants' results is characterized by mean = 0.4875, stdev = 0.0742, min = 0.2967, max = 0.6139, and median = 0.5027. Combination of machine learning and transducer is achieved by computing the union of results from both approaches, each using a hierarchy of sentiment specific classifiers.

It's a great experience publishing with Biomedical Informatics Insights. I am particularly impressed with the in-depth and constructive comments provided by the reviewers within such a short time-frame. The typesetting was not only prompt, but most importantly, effective. In fact, this was among the very few publication experiences that I have had when no correction was needed in the author proofs. I highly recommend Biomedical Informatics Insights to both readers and prospective ...
All authors are surveyed after their articles are published. Authors are asked to rate their experience in a variety of areas, and their responses help us to monitor our performance. Presented here are their responses in some key areas. No 'poor' or 'very poor' responses were received; these are represented in the 'other' category.See Our Results
