Call For Papers

The 2nd IEEE International Workshop on
Methods for Establishing Trust with Open Data

July 22-26, 2013 - Kyoto, Japan
(co-located with IEEE COMPSAC 2013)

Submission Deadline EXTENDED: 3rd April 2013

Aims and Scope
There are many forums where activists and political stakeholders discuss the topics of Trust and Open Data, but we found that our research community lacks a platform for researchers and engineers to exchange views using a more technical perspective. The METHOD workshops provide a forum for both groups to discuss approaches, theories, and concrete technical means required to establish trust in information that is processed, collected, managed, and provided using open data principles.

Trust is a highly complex concept that depends on a person’s background and personality. Without human help and input, an algorithm can hardly calculate an appropriate measure of trustworthiness for a given piece of information. But, what machines and algorithms can very well do, is to prepare information in a way that makes it easier for humans to come to a substantiated decision about its trustworthiness. One way of doing this is to try to make the handling of open data more comprehensible to the people involved.
Therefore, METHOD 2013 will focus on the transparency of processes involved with open data. The workshop will be a venue for presenting and discussing novel research ideas, as well as technical applications.

We invite authors to submit original papers that are relevant to both of the core topics of this workshop: Open Data and Trust Research. Contributions from the following fields are especially welcome:

- Provenance of open data
- Information quality & trustworthiness
- Data source attribution
- Integrity of information
- Transparency and verification of information flows
- Modeling trust in data-centric applications
- Trust representation and derivation from open data
- Attestation for data services and operations
- Trust management in the semantic web
- Community-based accountability
- Trustworthiness of user ratings and recommender systems
- Privacy preservation
- Detection and containment of privacy leaks
- De-identification of data
- Traceable data publishing and re-use
- Data fusion and conflict resolution
- Usage of meta-data for establishing trust
- Software architectures for transparent management of open data

Important Dates
03 April 2013 Deadline for paper submission
26 April 2013 Notification of acceptance
05 May 2013 Camera-ready and registration

Papers must be submitted electronically via the METHOD 2013 submission page found at Follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare your papers: (use the A4 template). All papers will be carefully reviewed by at least three reviewers. Papers can be submitted as regular papers (six pages), and the acceptance will depend on reviewer feedback. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings of the IEEE Computer Software and Applications Conference (COMPSAC 2013) by the IEEE CS Press. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register as a full participant of the workshop to have the paper published in the proceedings. Each accepted paper must be presented in person by an author.
