Workshop Goals
The Web hosts ever-increasing volumes of diverse data and associated services that cannot be fully exploited unless appropriate management and integration technologies are developed. The influence of the Web has been remarkable in the areas of databases, AI, and IR, where existing data models, data retrieval and extraction techniques, query languages and evaluation strategies, and semantic integration methods are constantly being revisited to account for new and heterogeneous data types, as well as for new scenarios under which the data is generated and processed. The WebDB workshop promotes novel research on next-generation information systems and encourages interaction between the database and other Web-related research communities. The workshop provides a forum where researchers and practitioners can share their knowledge and opinions about problems and solutions at the intersection of data management and the Web.

Topics of Interest
Of special relevance to this edition of the workshop are papers that address fundamental issues in Web services and applications.

Specifically, the topics of interest for WebDB 2006 include but are certainly not limited to:
  • Models and infrastructure for the management of Web services
  • Discovery, synthesis and composition of Web services and applications
  • Web search and distributed information retrieval
  • Web mining, exploration, and visualization
  • Web privacy and security
  • Schema matching and mapping
  • Ontology matching
  • Data integration
  • Integration of text into XML and relational databases
  • XML query processing and data management
  • Peer-to-peer search networks
  • Data stream management systems

Organization of the Workshop
The workshop will consist of 1-2 invited talks and paper presentations. Due to the SIGMOD organizers' decision to shrink the post-SIGMOD workshops to one day (down from 1.5 days), there will be no demo or poster session.
