Table of Contents

The main way of accessing content on contemporary Web is by means of general purpose search engines. However, for reasons such as: password protection, FORM based interfaces and usage of dynamic client-side technologies (JavaScript, AJAX, Flash, Adobe Air, and others), a significant portion of modern Web content cannot be indexed and thus is unavailable to the majority of Web users. In many cases these information sources that cannot be indexed, known altogether under the names of Deep Web, Hidden Web or Invisible Web, are better structured and of better quality than indexable surface Web sources. First attempts to index deep Web sources are proving that the task is not trivial. Started recently, Deep Web research combines challenges from several active research areas including information retrieval, information extraction, hypertext, Web engineering, data integration, database technologies and the Semantic Web.

The goal of this workshop is to bring researchers and practitioners together to explore the issues and challenges related to domain dependent and independent Deep Web empirical studies, methodologies and techniques of accessing and processing Deep Web content, as well as their real life applications.

Papers approved for presentation at ADW 2009 will be published in BIS 2009 workshop proceedings, as a volume in Springer's Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP) series.

Workshop format

All authors of accepted papers as well as other participants will be asked to read accepted papers abstracts before the workshop (papers will be available on-line in advance) to facilitate discussion.

Workshop participants will be also invited to take part in the BIS conference and other BIS workshops.

That's 2 clever by half and 2x2 clever 4 me. Thkans!
