Special Issue on Event-centric Open Analytics The modern society faces an unprecedented number of events that impact countries, communities and economies around the globe, across language, country and community borders. Recent examples include terrorist attacks, political shake-ups such as Brexit, worldwide pandemic outbreaks as well as ongoing and evolving topics such as the migration crisis in Europe that regularly spawn events of global importance affecting local communities. These developments result in a vast amount of event-centric, multilingual information available from heterogeneous sources on the Web, in the Web of Data, within knowledge graphs, in social media, inside web archives and in the news sources. Such event-centric information differs across sources, languages and communities, potentially reflecting community-specific aspects, opinions, sentiments and bias. Topics relevant to this special issue include - but are not limited to - the following: Representing and Storing Web of Data Event extraction, coreference and linking Relation extraction and linking Cross-lingual event analysis Sentiment analysis Fact verification, especially in connection with events Knowledge graph population with event-centric information Detection of fake news related to events Event representation in knowledge graphs Vocabularies for events Image-text relations for event analysis Event-centric question answering User interaction with multilingual event-centric data Human computation methods for multilingual data Propagation of event-centric information Language-specific bias Application of knowledge graphs in event analytics Use of knowledge graphs in cross-lingual and cross-cultural analytics Visualization techniques for event analysis Case studies for cross-lingual / cross-cultural event-centric analytics Deadline Submission deadline: 31st of March 2021. Papers submitted before the deadline will be reviewed upon receipt.
