The 6th Workshop on Algorithms and Models for the Web Graph (WAW2009)
The World Wide Web has become part of our everyday life, and information retrieval and data mining on the Web are now of enormous practical interest. The algorithms supporting these activities combine the view of the Web as a text repository and as a graph, induced in various ways by links among pages, links among hosts, or other similar networks. We also witness an increasing role of the second generation Web-based applications Web 2.0 such as social networking sites and wiki sites.
The aim of the 6-th Workshop on Algorithms and Models for the Web Graph (WAW2009) is to further the understanding of the Web and Web 2.0 graphs, and stimulate the development of high-performance algorithms and applications for Web and Web 2.0. The workshop will also welcome the researchers who are working on graph-theoretic and algorithmic aspects of citation networks, social networks, biological networks, molecular networks, and Internet.
