SIGWP is a special interest group on Wikipedia mining originaly founded by School of Information Science and Technology, Osaka-Univ, Japan. Since Wikipedia has various impressive characteristics such as dense link structure and URI identification for concepts, the conviction that Wikipedia is a notable Web corpus for knowledge extraction has been strongly confirmed.

We are welcome to any comment, suggestion, feedback, and joint project.

Project leader: Dr. Kotaro Nakayama, the University of Tokyo, Japan.
