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
