The advent of the Web has dramatically increased the need for efficient
and flexible mechanisms to provide integrated views over multiple heterogeneous
information sources. The field is facing new challenges posted by the penetration
of the Web and Internet to everyone's daily life, and the changes of the
economical and financial environment where database systems are used. However,
information on the WWW is placed independently by different organization,
thus, documents containing related information may appear at different
Web-sites and in different format.
In-house data warehousing may be no longer sufficient to support an organization's information needs. Therefore, warehousing of Web data and its integration with traditional databases is an important problem.
The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for articles that bring the challenges in the design, maintenance and implementation of Web based Information Systems, and the opportunity for all involved to debate new issues and directions for research and development work in the future.
Authors are invited to submit papers, in English, 11pt, approximately
5000 words by January 31 , 2001.
Electronic submissions are required. Please send an e-mail containing your submission in postscript or
PDF format to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Submitted papers will be evaluated by three reviewers, based on relevance,
originality, and clarity of presentation. Papers accepted for presentation will be included in the workshop proceedings, and published on the
Workshop Web site. Selected best papers will be invited for publication (in extended version, subject to refereeing) in a special issue of an international journal.
