Call For Papers


1st Workshop on Advances in Accessing Deep Web (ADW 2008)
in conjunction with
11th International Conference on Business Information Systems (BIS 2008)

Innsbruck, Austria
May 5, 6 or 7, 2008


Deadline for submissions: March 16, 2008


The main way of accessing content on contemporary Web is by means of
general purpose search engines.
However, for reasons such as: password protection, FORM based interfaces
and usage of dynamic client-side technologies (JavaScript, AJAX and
Flash), a significant portion of modern Web content remains nonindexable
and thus unavailable to the majority of Web users.
In many cases this nonindexable information sources, known altogether
under the names of Deep Web, Hidden Web or Invisible Web, are better
structured and of better quality than indexable surface Web sources.
Started only recently, Deep Web research combines challenges from
several active research areas including information retrieval,
information extraction, hypertext, Web engineering, data integration,
database technologies and the Semantic Web.

The goal of this workshop is to bring researchers and practitioners
together to explore the issues and challenges related to domain
dependent and independent Deep Web empirical studies, methodologies and
techniques of accessing and processing Deep Web content as well as their
real-life applications.
In the workshop we would like to present and discuss research, business
cases and working prototypes / applications in areas including, but no
limited to:


* Modelling and Describing Deep Web
* Models of Deep Web Navigation
* Hidden Web Data and the Semantic Web
* Description of Deep Web Sources Contents
* Description of Deep Web Sources Querying Capabilities
* Addressing Content and Data in Deep Web Sources
* Semantic Annotation of Deep Web Sources
* Empirical Studies of Deep Web
* Research on Deep Web Size and Topicality
* Deep Web Content and Quality Studies
* Domain-Specific Deep Web Sources Studies
* Comparative Studies of Deep Web and Surface Web Content
* Working with Deep Web Sources
* Probing Deep Web Sources
* Classification and Clustering of Deep Web Sources
* Handling Client-Side Technologies (JavaScript/dHTML/AJAX) for Deep
Web Access
* Extraction of Data from Deep Web
* Deep Web Sources Discovery
* Archiving and Preservation of Deep Web Content
* Methods of Deep Web Indexing
* Data Integration from Deep Web Sources
* Deep Web Sources Selection
* Rewriting Queries for Deep Web Sources
* Matching and Mapping of Deep Web Sources Schemas
* Methods of Deep Web Meta-Search
* Applications of Deep Web Research
* Monitoring Hidden Web Data
* Cases and Best Practices of Deep Web Data Usage
* Business Models of Deep Web Data Integration
* Legal and Ethical Aspects of Using Deep Web Content
* Detecting and Disabling Deep Web Harvesting


* Long papers: max. 5000 words
* Work-in-progress rep.: max. 2500 words
* Position papers: max. 2500 words
* Demo papers: max. 2500 words

Papers must be submitted in PDF format according to Springer LNBIP
template available from

Submission system is available on-line at

The proceedings will be published jointly with proceedings of other BIS
workshops as a book or CD with ISBN number, and on-line at CEUR
workshop proceedings publication service (open content).
Extended version of selected papers submitted to the workshop will be
published as special issue of International Journal on WWW/Internet
(, ISSN: 1645-7641).


All authors of accepted papers as well as other participants will be
asked to read accepted papers abstracts before the workshop (papers will
be available on-line in advance) to facilitate discussion.
The workshop will consist in two parts: first (more formal) devoted to
presentation and discussion of accepted papers and second (less formal)
devoted to discussion of several issues related to Deep Web resources,
selected earlier by workshop Program Committee and Chairs.
Workshop participants will be also invited to take part in the BIS
conference and other BIS workshops (including workshops on Social
Aspects of the Web (SAW 2008) and on E-Learning for Business Needs).
