 * WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION*

As computers and computer networks become more common, a huge amount
of information such as that found in Web documents has been
accumulated and circulated. Such information gives many people a
framework for organizing their private and professional lives.
However, in general, the quality control of Web content is
insufficient due to low publishing barriers. In result there is a lot
of mistaken or unreliable information on the Web that can have
detrimental effects on users. This situation 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. The problem of Web information reliability and Web data quality
has become also apparent in the view of the recent emergence of many
popular Web 2.0 applications.


 * TOPICS *

 The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for discussion on
 issues related to information credibility criteria and the process of
