* AIM OF THE WORKSHOP *

The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for discussion about issues
related to information credibility and its evaluation.

As computers and computer networks become more sophisticated, a huge
amount of information, such as that found in Web documents, has been
accumulated and circulated. Such information gives people a framework for organizing their daily
lives. A well-functioning society needs technology that can be used to
manage this wealth of information and, in particular, investigate its credibility.
This technology would be able to handle a wide range of tasks:
extracting credible information related to a given topic,
organizing this information, detecting its provenance, clarifying
background, facts, and various related opinions and the distribution of
them, and so on. Especially, as the Web is becoming a major source of
information nowadays, it is necessary to provide efficient and reliable
methods for evaluation of Web content's trustworthiness. 

* TOPICS *

We invite submissions on any aspects of information credibility on the
Web. Topics include, but are not limited to: 

- Information credibility evaluation and its applications
- Content analysis for credibility evaluation
- Sentiment analysis of content
