                 Call for Papers
International Workshop Data Integration & the Semantic Web
June 5, 2006, Luxembourg, in Conjunction with CAiSE'06

Information integration has been a long standing challenge for the 
database community. The investigation of this problem in the two last 
decades led to a great piece of fundamental theory together with many 
pragmatic work concerned with implementation and testing of a variety of 
information integration systems as well as the development of 
applications in several areas. However, today, under the driving force 
of new application areas and Internet, there is a need in leveraging 
traditional integration techniques in order to tackle new challenges 
such as on-the-fly or web-scale integration in open and highly dynamic 
information space.
DISWeb’06  is the fifth workshop in a successful series of annual 
workshops on Data Integration and Semantic Web, which have been held in 
conjunction with the International Conference on Advanced Information 
Systems Engineering (CAISE). DISWeb'06 aims at continuing the tradition 
of the previous four workshops in fostering the debate on new issues and 
research directions in the information integration and the semantic web.

DISWeb’06 solicits high quality papers reporting research results and/or 
experience reports. Workshop topics include, but are not limited  to, 
the following:
-  Semantic integration
- Web semantics
-  Data sharing in P2P
-  Integrated data management for mobile applications
-  Ontologies for data integration
-  Ontology-based information sharing
-  Schema  mapping
-   Managing metadata for semantic integration
-  Distributed data warehouses
-  New architectures for data integration
-  Web services
- Web querying: planning and optimization
-  Storage structures and indexing techniques for web data
-  Web data visualization

Authors are invited to submit papers, in English, 11pt, of approximately 
5000 words. Electronic submissions are required. Submitted papers will 
be evaluated by three reviewers. Acceptance will be based on relevance, 
technical soundness, originality, and quality of presentation. Papers 
accepted for presentation will be included in the workshop proceedings. 
Selected best papers will be invited for publication (in extended 
version, subject to refereeing) in a special issue of an international 
Papers should be submitted by email as Word or PDF documents to Farouk 
Toumani (ftoumani at isima.fr).
