Workshop Goals

The advent of the Web has generated a new class of applications (portals, electronic marketplaces, etc) and has changed the focus of information processing from centralized, relational servers to exporting information on the Web using open and flexible models (such as XML) and to computing information using Web sources.

This new landscape has created new challenges and opportunities at the juncture of databases and the Web. It has compelled the database community to revisit its approach to data models, query languages, query optimization, XML and semistructured data management, data and application integration, and data publishing. The new landscape also demands that database research further interact with information retrieval, programming languages, distributed computing, workflows, and other areas of Computer Science.

The WebDB workshop focuses on promoting novel research directions and providing a forum where researchers, theoreticians, and practitioners can share their knowledge and opinions about problems and solutions at the intersection of data management and the Web.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
  • Data models for the Web
