In conjunction with the 14th CIKM 2005
In cooperation with ACM SIGMOD
Sponsored by ACM SIGIR

NEW: Keynote Speach by Dr. Donald Kossmann

NEW: List of accepted papers

NEW: Final Program


ACM WIDM 2005 is the seventh in a series of workshops on Web Information and Data Management to be held in conjunction with the 14th International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM 2005). The objective of the workshop is to bring together researchers, industrial practitioners, and developers to study how the Web information can be extracted, stored, analyzed, and processed to provide useful knowledge to the end users for various advanced database and Web applications.

  • Web Mining: Web Usage Mining, Web Classification, Web Clustering, Resource Discovery, Web Personalization, Web Data Extraction, Web Structure Mining.
  • Web and XML Data Management: Web Data Models and Meta-data, XML Query Languages, XML Data Storage Systems, XML Indexing, XML Warehousing, XML Data Integration.
  • Semantic Web: Web Annotations, Ontologies, Semantic Web Services.
  • Web Commerce: Web Services, Intelligent Agents on the Web, Web Site Modeling and Design, Advanced XML Tools, Mobile Commerce.
  • Advanced Web Applications: Digital Libraries, Web Portals, Web Visualization Tools, Web Information Filtering.
  • Web Exploration: Web Crawling, Intelligent Web Search Engines.
  • Performance of Web Applications: Web Caching, Web Monitoring.

Electronic submission will be used. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically as PDF files and be formatted using the camera-ready templates available at ACM site. Papers must have "6 to 8 pages" in length using the ACM style.

All accepted papers will appear in the Proceedings published by the ACM Press. The best workshop papers will be invited to be revised and submitted to a special journal issue. For 2002, 2003 and 2004 editions of WIDM, Data & Knowledge Engineering was the journal selected for publication of this special issue. We intend to use this prestigious journal again for the WIDM 2005 special issue. Starting from this year, a one-day workshop schedule will let accommodate regular papers along with a few short papers (whenever applicable).

  • Submission of abstract: July 4, 2005 (Midnight, EDT)
  • Submission of full paper: July 11, 2005 (Midnight, EDT)    
  • Notification of acceptance: August 15, 2005
  • Camera-ready copy due: August 29, 2005

"A Web of Data: New Architectures for New Technology?"

The last decade has seen a wave of new technology to publish, access, and integrate data on the Web. Furthermore, many new applications have emerged and Web technologies have penetrated almost all systems from small mobile applications to large-scale enterprise applications. Nevertheless, the way we build those applications has not changed much; imperative programming languages (e.g., Java or C#) and middleware architectures are still dominant in industry. This talk tries to describe why these old architectures are problematic and presents ideas for novel software architectures to build Web applications.
