Web Information Systems (WIS) are information systems that exploit the Web
paradigm (and technologies) to retrieve information from data sources and
deliver it to the users. Due to their complex requirements the design of WIS
is not a trivial task. As a consequence, also the trust that the users of
the systems have in them is not trivial. Today, many organizations and
individuals depend on WIS in order to fulfil their objectives. The
trustability of WIS is therefore an important issue. Ad-hoc development of
WIS that are not based on rigorous specifications very often lead to
error-prone systems that users cannot trust. The use of explicit, formal
models in the design of WIS before constructing them helps the development
of reliable systems.
The aim of the workshop is to provide a platform for bringing together researchers, practitioners, designers, and users of WIS and discuss how specific issues in model-driven design of WIS can increase the trust of the users. Specifically, we will discuss how the influence of Semantic Web technology can help to improve the trust. Thus, the workshop should enable a fruitful exchange of ideas in the state-of-the-art of WIS modeling.
The workshop topics include but are not limited to:
Prospective workshop participants are invited to submit a paper related to one (or more) of the workshop topics. Papers should not exceed 5000 words in length and should be formatted as close as possible to the Springer LNCS style http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html. They need to be original and not submitted or accepted for publication in any other workshop, conference, or journal. The organizers will oversee a peer-review process for the submitted papers. Papers should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org in PDF format.
Workshop proceedings will be published in the official CAiSE workshop proceedings with an ISBN number. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions for publication in prestigious international journals.
