 * WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION*

The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for discussion on issues related to information credibility criteria and the process of its evaluation. As the quality control of Web content is insufficient due to low publishing barriers there is a lot of mistaken or unreliable information on the Web. This calls for technology that would facilitate judging the trustworthiness of content and the quality and accuracy of the information that users encounter on the Web. Such technology should 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 other related opinions and the distribution of them, and so on.
