INTRODUCTION
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Recent years have witnessed the transition of the Web from an information
repository service to a social and business platform. New, unprecedented
services are available on the Web that capitalize on the social aspects of user
communities. Crowd-sourcing, user-generated content, folksonomies, social
computing, are all examples of services that were made possible by the recent
shift in application design paradigms. Such services offer to many people a
framework for organizing their private and professional lives. Unfortunately,
low publishing barriers impact the quality of the content on the Web.
Pseudo-anonymity of Web users combined with strong financial incentives
encourage many users to perform malicious activities. These activities range
from relatively harmless (e.g. trolling), through irritating (e.g. spamming),
up to criminal (e.g. online auction fraud). In order to protect the community
of users from malevolent wrong-doers, new tools and techniques need to be
developed. To guarantee the trustworthiness of content, mechanisms for managing
its quality, assessing the associated risk, and judge about trust must be
designed and implemented to enable the emergence of fairness in Web
environments.

TOPICS OF INTEREST
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The objective of the workshop is to create a common space for researchers and
practitioners of trust, risk and reputation management to collaborate, exchange
and discuss ideas, case studies, and solutions. The management of trust, risk
and reputation, as well as recommendation engines, are ubiquitous in Web
environments. They apply to webpages, blogs, social networks, Internet forums,
P2P networks, online auction markets, and business to business markets, to name
a few. Hence, workshop topic list is very broad and includes (not
exclusively):

* anomaly and spam detection in social networks
* link and webpage spamming
* P2P ranking and spamming
* fairness in P2P networks
* information quality, trust and reputation management in the blogosphere
* social role discovery in Internet forums
* reputation of Internet forum community members
* trust and reputation in online auctions
* risk analysis and risk propensity
* trust in recommender systems
* Web information retrieval for improving access to qualitative information
