Special Issue "News Research in Social Networks and Social Media" - Journal Information
In recent years, the news industry has undergone a big transformation as a consequence of its online diffusion. According to a recent survey, social media has become an important source of news for adults around the world. Nevertheless, this survey also revealed that phenomena such as fake news have had a serious impact on the credibility of online news. Additionally, scientific and technical progress has enabled the increasing adoption of data-driven news generation. Lastly, online news provides a rich dataset for understanding the characteristics of news media channels, such as political leaning and tone, as well as news consumption and sharing dynamics.
This Special Issue aims to provide an overview of the application of intelligent techniques in the news domain. The key areas of this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:

The conference on Ontologies, DataBases, and Applications of Semantics for Large Scale Information Systems (ODBASE’18) provides a forum on the use of ontologies, rules and data semantics in novel applications. Of particular relevance to ODBASE are papers that bridge traditional boundaries between disciplines such as artificial intelligence and Semantic Web, databases, data science, data analytics and machine learning, human-computer interaction, social networks, distributed and mobile systems, data and information retrieval, knowledge discovery, and computational linguistics.
ODBASE’18 intends to draw a highly diverse body of researchers and practitioners by being part of the Federated conferences Event "On the Move to Meaningful Internet Systems 2018 (OnTheMove'18)" that co-locates three conferences: ODBASE'18, C&TC'18 (International Symposium on Secure Virtual Infrastructures), and CoopIS'18 (International Conference on Cooperative Information Systems).
ODBASE 2018 will consider two categories of papers: research and experience. Research papers must contain novel, unpublished research results. Experience papers must describe performance or usability of existing real-world systems, empirical studies, business / industry cases with (proven) solutions / systems for applied technological challenges, and concrete results demonstrating real-world importance and impact; preference will be given to papers that describe software products or systems that are in use in the community and/or the industry.
