XML and Web Data

The Web hosts ever-increasing volumes of diverse data and associated services that cannot be fully exploited unless appropriate management and integration technologies are developed. The scale and diversity of Web data requires novel techniques for discovery, analysis storage, and querying. Certainly one critical aspect of Web data management is XML, which has become the lingua-franca of the Web. XML is widely used in exchanging data on the Web and in the publication of data from
relational systems and digital libraries.
The XML and Web Data track promotes novel research on next-generation information systems and technologies for managing Web data. The topics of interest for this track are but not limited to:

  • XML query processing and data management
  • Models and query languages for Web data
  • Hidden Web resource discovery, retrieval and integration
  • Data management support for Web crawling
  • Approximate and trustworthy query answering
  • Data stream management systems
  • Exploration and visualization of Web data
  • Integration of text into XML and relational databases
  • XML Data and schema integration
  • Warehousing Web data
  • Data management in Peer-to-Peer systems
  • Privacy and security of XML data
  • Provenance of Web data
  • Large-scale web information integration
  • Web wrappers
  • Information extraction
  • Managing uncertainty in Web-based data
  • Evaluation of XML querying and retrieval systems
  • Exploiting XML structure in access and retrieval

Paper formatting requirements are provided on the Submission page.
