Call for Workshops

Call for Workshops

WAIM is a leading international conference for researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to share and exchange ideas, results, experiences, techniques, and tools in connection with all aspects of Web data management. As the 15th event in the increasingly popular series, WAIM2014 expects to attract participants from all over the world to Macau, a famous resort in China, and continues to establish WAIM as one of the major conferences on Web-based information systems.

We solicit proposals for half-day or full-day workshops to be held on June 16, 2014 (tentatively) in conjunction with WAIM 2014. Workshops are expected to focus on novel ideas on current and emerging topics relevant to the conference. All papers accepted by WAIM 2014 workshops will be published in a combined volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science series published by Springer, indexed by EI (pending for approval).

All workshops will benefit from the registration process of WAIM 2014 (we will have a single registration for conferences, workshops and tutorials). The workshop organizer(s) will be responsible for advertising the workshop, reviewing and selecting the papers.
