and Databases will be solicited.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Cloud computing and distributed computing over the Web
Collaborative data management on the Web
Data integration over the Web
Data models and query languages for Web information
Data-intensive applications on the Web
Database support for social network and Web 2.0 applications
Human computation in Web databases
Information retrieval in semi-structured data and the Web
Knowledge search over the Web
Filtering and recommendation systems
Location-aware Web applications
Modeling, mining and querying user generated content
