 * MINITRACK DESCRIPTION*

Due to the absence of publishing standards or review processes the
quality control of Web content is often insufficient. In result there
is a lot of mistaken or unreliable information on the Web that can
have detrimental effects on users. For example, Web pages may provide
inaccurate or incomplete information, or their content can be obsolete
or biased. 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 information reliability and quality on the Web has become also
apparent in the view of the recent emergence of many popular Web 2.0
applications.
