Processing Web data poses new challenges for database and
information-retrieval techologies. Among these challenges are: the
amounts of Web data; its relevance ranging from useless to highly
useful sources; its heterogeneity ranging from plain text, to
structured documents, to sounds and images; the way data is generated,
from static HTML pages to database queries, and its unpredictability.
Despite these challenges, today we can search the entire Web, mine
significant portions of it, integrate data from multiple Web data
sources, and query Web data. New technologies, such as those based on
the XML standard, are aimed at enterprise-wide Web applications and
data integration. Future applications will probably go much further.
In this two-day workshop, leading researchers at the forefront of
database and Web research will give their visions of the future of
data processing on the Web.
