CALL FOR CHAPTERS
 
Submission Deadline: March 31, 2005
 
 
Web Data Management Practices: Emerging Techniques and Technologies
 
A book edited by Assist. Prof. Athena Vakali and George Pallis, 
Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece
 
Publisher: Idea Group Inc.
 
The explosive growth of the Web has dramatically changed the way in 
which information is managed and accessed. In this context, the need of 
various Web data management techniques and mechanisms has become 
obligatory in providing (useful to users) information and improving 
information circulation and dissemination over the Web. Such Web data 
management enabling practices (mainly) include Web data mining, scalable 
data warehousing and preprocessing, sequence discovery, real time 
processing, users and documents clustering and classification, user 
modeling and evaluation models.
 
Due to the emerging and recent advances in the fields of Web data 
mining, Web information management, knowledge discovery etc., there 
exists a need for an edited collection of articles in this area. The 
book intends to provide a complete reference for current research and 
development activities in the area of Web data management. The book aims 
at studying how the Web information can be extracted, stored, analyzed, 
and processed to provide useful knowledge to both researchers and end 
users working over various (advanced database and Web) applications.
 
The book is intended for professionals, practitioners, developers, 
researchers, (under)graduate students and managers interested in the 
mostly emerging topics such as Web modeling, Web intelligent, Web data 
clustering, Web semantics, Web data prefetching and caching. More 
specifically, the book will be suitable for scientists who wish to focus 
on this scientific area in order to proceed to advanced applications, or 
to basic and/or applied research. Moreover, the book will be ideal for 
researchers from other computer science disciplines who wish to get 
acquainted with this area and integrate it with their own field. The 
chapters should review the state-of-the-art in the area towards 
presenting research papers, existing tools and case studies which will 
provide insight into important new developments and future research trends.
 
Therefore, we solicit high quality chapters in the topics which include, 
but and are not limited to, the following:
 
   * Web models and meta-data management
   * Web indexing, caching, replication and data storage on the web
   * Clustering/classification on the web
   * Web data extraction
   * The XML standard in web data management
   * Probabilistic models and web information retrieval
   * Directory services, and information management
   * Web services for effective web data accessing
   * Web communities
   * Web usage characterization and web user modeling
 
SUBMISSION PROCEDURE
 
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before March 
31, 2005, a 2-5 page manuscript proposal clearly explaining the mission 
and concerns of the proposed chapter. The proposals should be sent by 
email to one of the two editors. All chapter proposals will be peer 
reviewed. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by April 20, 
2005 about the status of their proposals and sent chapter organizational 
guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by August 15, 
2005. All submitted chapters will be reviewed by at least two reviewers 
on a blind review basis. The book is scheduled to be published by Idea 
Group Inc., www.idea-group.com, publisher of the Idea Group Publishing, 
Information Science Publishing, IRM Press, CyberTech Publishing and Idea 
Group Reference imprints.
