Workshop on Exploiting Structured Information on the Web (ESIW 2009)
in conjunction with
10th International Conference on Web Information Systems
Engineering (WISE 2009)

Poznań, Poland
October 5-7, 2009


Extended submission deadline: May 15, 2009


In recent years we observe growing availability of structured
information on the Web. While significant part of it is in a human
readable form, not adapted for automated processing (HTML, AJAX,
Flash, Deep Web, Web applications), more machine-processable
information enters the Web thanks to complementary top-down and
bottom-up tendencies.

Bottom-up tendencies are related to publication of structured
information in a machine-processable form (e.g. in XML, RDF, JSON). It
also covers annotation of unstructured content with meta-data (e.g.
microformats, RDFa, SIOC, MPEG-7). Top-down approaches are related to
algorithmically structuring unstructured information. They combine
different methods of Web mining, information extraction,
classification, categorization, automated linking and named entities
recognition. Moreover, phenomena combining these tendencies, such as
social annotation of resources, are widely present in today’s Web.

More structured information on the Web enables information integration
using shared vocabularies (linked data approach), data mashups
(domain-specific integration), and automated algorithmic information
integration (schemas matching, dataspaces, lexical techniques). In
parallel, popularization of mashup, data monitoring and social data
sharing techniques, enable easier information reuse and growing number
of intelligent services combing various dynamic information sources,
algorithms and explicit or implicit users input.

The ESIW 2009 workshop will adopt a multi-disciplinary approach to
current tendencies in exploiting structured information on the Web.
The workshop will provide an informal and vibrant forum for
researchers and industry practitioners to share their research results
and practical development experiences.


The topics of the workshop will include, but will not be limited to:

* Federated and inter-organizational Web applications
* Models and query languages for Web data
* Hidden Web resource discovery, retrieval and integration
* Warehousing Web data
* Provenance of Web data
* Web wrappers
* Information extraction
* Managing uncertainty in Web-based data
* Methods for integrating and federating Web data
* Novel applications that exploit structured data sources on the Web
* Data integration and data cleaning
* Lessons learned from application of Microformats, JSON, RESTful
* Innovative approaches to data mashups
* Structured information flows on the Web and Web-based information
* Linked data
* Reasoning with incompletely specified structures
* Multimedia metadata / annotation schemes and methods
* Mining users and organizations profile from Web data


The proceedings of WISE 2009 workshops will be published by Springer
in its Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Paper length is 8
