Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,


The 2nd International Workshop on Quality of Open Data (QOD 2019) will be held in June 2019 in Seville in conjunction with the 22nd International Conference on Business Information Systems. The goal of the workshop is to bring together different communities working on quality in Wikipedia, DBpedia, Wikidata, OpenStreetMap, Wikimapia, and other open knowledge bases. The workshop calls for sharing research experiences and knowledge related to quality assessment in open data. We invite papers that provide methodologies and techniques which can help to verify and enrich various community-based services in different languages. This Special Issue of Information intends to attract submissions on the topic of quality issues in Open Data. There is no Article Processing Charge for extended version of the accepted papers at the QOD 2019 workshop.
