Models of Trust for the Web (MTW'06)

As it gets easier to add information to the web via html pages, wikis, blogs, and other documents, it gets tougher to distinguish accurate information from inaccurate or untrustworthy information. A search engine query usually results in several hits that are outdated and/or from unreliable sources and the user is forced to go through the results and pick what she/he considers the most reliable information based on her/his trust requirements. With the introduction of web services, the problem is further exacerbated as users have to come up with a new set of requirements for trusting web services and web services themselves require a more automated way of trusting each other. Apart from inaccurate or outdated information, we also need to anticipate Semantic Web Spam (SWAM) -- where spammers publish false facts and scams to deliberately mislead users. This workshop is interested in all aspects of enabling trust on the web.

This workshop will bring together researchers and Experts from different communities (e.g., Information Systems, Database, Semantic Web, Web Services) interested in topics like trust, provenance, privacy, security, reputation and spam, in order to address current challenges of their application to distributed environments like the Web. The workshop will deliver a state-of-the-art overview, successful research advances in the area as well as guidelines for future research.
