Published on

The First International Workshop on Searching and Integrating New Web Data Sources (VLDS 2011) will take place on September 2nd, as a satellite event of VLDB 2011 in Seattle, WA, USA.

The goal of this workshop is to gather researchers and practitioners in the diverse fields related to data integration and search applications on the web at the purpose of discussing innovative strategies for combining search facilities with integration aspects for Web data sources.

The workshop represents a unique venue for discussing all the aspects related to the implementation, publication, and orchestration of services over new Web data sources, the most suitable paradigms to improve the user experience in context, as well as the application scenarios which may better benefit of these new technologies, including enterprise applications, recommender systems, and social search.
