Call For Papers

20th International Workshop on the Web and Databases (WebDB) 2017

In conjunction with ACM SIGMOD 2017

Sunday, May 14, 2017, Chicago, IL, USA
Submission deadline: 24 February 2017


Preliminary note
The SIGMOD EC continues to work on the relocation of the
SIGMOD/PODS 2017 conference and workshops. We understand that
the uncertainty with respect to the location may be of concern to some of the participants. Therefore, we have decided to extend the WebDB deadline
to February 24, to allow time for the EC to finalize arrangements and announce
the new location. We expect that information on the new arrangements
is forthcoming.

WebDB, first held in 1998, provides a forum for researchers,
theoreticians, and practitioners to share and promote insights, ideas,
and novel research directions for the management of Web data. It covers a
broad range of topics, including the extraction of knowledge from the
Web, the transformation, generation, dissemination, and exchange of Web
data, functionality pertaining to interfaces and applications, and many

WebDB has traditionally had a theme; the theme for WebDB 2017 is:
Web of opinions: Truths, beliefs, and conflicts.

This theme emphasizes the unique nature of Web data, a large portion of
which is contributed by human users, who naturally demonstrate diverging
opinions and views, resulting in data that is often uncertain,
unreliable, and conflicting. Submissions relevant to the theme are
particularly encouraged, but WebDB will also publish works more generally
pertaining to Web data management.
