The World-Wide-Web is being used for day-to-day work, finding information, communicating ideas, carrying out distributed computation, and conducting business. The Web is continuing to grow at an exponential rate, in terms of both the amount and diversity of the information that it encompasses, and the size of its user base. This growth poses a host of challenges to the research community. In particular, there is a need to understand and manage the dynamics of the Web, i.e. how its information content, topology and usage change, and what kinds of models and techniques will scale up to the rate of change. There is a need for mechanisms and algorithms for organising and manipulating information on the Web in order to make the Web tractable.
This workshop aims to bring together researchers from academia and industry who are working on novel approaches to managing and interacting with the changing, growing Web. It will be held in the Senate House of the University of London, just before ICDT.
