Dear colleagues,

as per my earlier mail for a Call for a special issue on "Computational Ethics and Accountability" in ACM TOIT,
which I deem very relevant for Semantic Web tocpis, please note that we have extended the deadline until 

    15 January 2017 
 
and are looking forward for your submissions! Please feel free to contact me if you are interested to submit and have further questions!

Axel
