           The 2nd IEEE International Workshop on
        Methods for Establishing Trust with Open Data
                       METHOD 2013


             July 22-26, 2013 - Kyoto, Japan
           (co-located with IEEE COMPSAC 2013)

           Submission Deadline 20th March 2013

Aims and Scope
There are many forums where activists and political stakeholders discuss the
topics of Trust and Open Data, but we found that our research community
a platform for researchers and engineers to exchange views using a more
technical perspective. The METHOD workshops provide a forum for both groups
discuss approaches, theories, and concrete technical means required to
establish trust in information that is processed, collected, managed, and
provided using open data principles.

Trust is a highly complex concept that depends on a personís background and
personality. Without human help and input, an algorithm can hardly calculate
an appropriate measure of trustworthiness for a given piece of information.
But, what machines and algorithms can very well do, is to prepare
in a way that makes it easier for humans to come to a substantiated decision
about its trustworthiness. One way of doing this is to try to make the
handling of open data more comprehensible to the people involved.
Therefore, METHOD 2013 will focus on the transparency of processes involved
with open data. The workshop will be a venue for presenting and discussing
novel research ideas, as well as technical applications.

We invite authors to submit original papers that are relevant to both of the
core topics of this workshop: Open Data and Trust Research. Contributions
the following fields are especially welcome:

- Provenance of open data
- Information quality & trustworthiness
- Data source attribution
- Integrity of information
- Transparency and verification of information flows
- Modeling trust in data-centric applications
- Trust representation and derivation from open data
- Attestation for data services and operations
- Trust management in the semantic web
- Community-based accountability
- Trustworthiness of user ratings and recommender systems
- Privacy preservation
- Detection and containment of privacy leaks
- De-identification of data
- Traceable data publishing and re-use
- Data fusion and conflict resolution
- Usage of meta-data for establishing trust
- Software architectures for transparent management of open data

Important Dates
20 March 2013   Deadline for paper submission
21 April 2013   Notification of acceptance
05 May   2013   Camera-ready and registration

Papers must be submitted electronically via the METHOD 2013 submission page
found at http://myreview.cs.iastate.edu/METHOD2013/. Follow the IEEE
Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare your papers:
http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/submission (use the A4 template).
papers will be carefully reviewed by at least three reviewers. Papers can be
submitted as regular papers (six pages), and the acceptance will depend on
reviewer feedback. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop
proceedings of the IEEE Computer Software and Applications Conference
2013) by the IEEE CS Press. At least one of the authors of each accepted
must register as a full participant of the workshop to have the paper
published in the proceedings. Each accepted paper must be presented in
by an author.
