The different solutions are sometimes in contrast one to the other. One of the aim of the scientific community is to make available techniques that are in the same time general purpose scalable and effective to solve real problems. Contribute to this direction is the general objective of this seminar.

Topics with be discussed are (but not limited to): data publication and streaming, data crawling and indexing, access and navigation methods, data fusion and mashups, linked data and entity resolution, data evolution, geo and temporal diminutions, quality, privacy, among others.

The seminar is structured around one or two invited talks. These contributions are expected to stimulate a wide discussion on new research trends on Web Data. The discussion will be complemented by short presentations (20-30 min. each) by participants. Submission of proposals for a presentation are to be sent to Paolo Ceravolo before June 5th. Proposals should include the title of the presentation and a short abstract.
