The 4th Workshop on Information Credibility on the Web (WICOW 2010)

in conjunction with the 19th World Wide Web Conference 2010

April 26-30 (one day) 2010, Raleigh, NC, USA


As computers and computer networks become more common, a huge amount
of information such as that found in Web documents has been
accumulated and circulated. Such information gives many people a
framework for organizing their private and professional lives.
However, in general, the quality control of Web content is
insufficient due to low publishing barriers. In result there is a lot
of mistaken or unreliable information on the Web that can have
detrimental effects on users. This situation calls for technology that
would facilitate judging the trustworthiness of content and the
quality and accuracy of the information that users encounter on the
Web. Such technology should be able to handle a wide range of tasks:
extracting credible information related to a given topic, organizing
this information, detecting its provenance, clarifying background,
facts, and other related opinions and the distribution of them, and so
on. The problem of Web information reliability and Web data quality
has become also apparent in the view of the recent emergence of many
popular Web 2.0 applications.


The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for discussion on
issues related to information credibility criteria and the process of
its evaluation. We invite submissions on any aspect of information
credibility on the Web. Topics include, but are not limited to:

- Information credibility evaluation and its applications
- Web content analysis for credibility evaluation
- Author?fs intent detection
- Content quality and credibility in Web archiving
- Credibility of Web search results
- Search models for trustworthy content on the Web
- Conflicting opinion detection
- News credibility
- Multimedia content credibility
- Credibility evaluation of user-generated content (ex. Wikipedia, Q&A)
- Information credibility evaluation in social networks
- Analysis of information dissemination on the Web
- Spatial and temporal aspects in information credibility on the Web
- Information credibility theory and fundamentals
- Estimation of information age, provenance and validity
- Estimation of author?fs and publisher?fs reputation
- Sociological and psychological aspects of information credibility estimation
- Users study for information credibility evaluation
- Persuasive technologies
