*------------------------------------------------KG-BIAS Workshop at AKBC

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the first-ever "Bias in
Automatic Knowledge Graph Construction" (KG-BIAS) workshop at AKBC 2020. In
this workshop, we provide a platform for systematically investigating
different types of bias in all aspects of automatic knowledge graph (KG)
construction and downstream applications that involve KGs. Our hope is to
foster collaboration and agree on a shared research agenda by bringing
together and growing a community of researchers from a diverse set of
communities across academia, industry, and nonprofits around this important
but understudied topic.
