ATI Grants 5th Novática Award to Best Article of 2010


The 5th Novática Award has been presented to the best article of 2010 published in Novática. Novática is the journal published by Asociación de Técnicos de Informática (ATI). The jury selected the winning article, AVBOT: Detection and Correction of Vandalism in the Wikipedia, from a shortlist of five articles. It is written by Emilio-José Rodríguez-Posada, a young informatics professional who cooperates with the Free Software and Open Knowledge Office of Universidad de Cádiz in Spain.

AVBOT is a robot developed for protecting the Spanish edition of Wikipedia against undue modifications. The article was published, in Spanish, in Issue 203. The English version will be published later this year by CEPIS UPGRADE, while the rest of the finalists’ articles have been published already in CEPIS UPGRADE.
