****CALL FOR PAPERS**** 2nd Workshop on Information Credibility on the Web (WICOW 2008) in conjunction with 17th ACM CIKM 2008 October 30, 2008, Napa Valley, California http://www.dl.kuis.kyoto-u.ac.jp/wicow2 * AIM OF THE WORKSHOP * The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for discussion about issues related to information credibility and its evaluation. As computers and computer networks become more sophisticated, a huge amount of information, such as that found in Web documents, has been accumulated and circulated. Such information gives people a framework for organizing their daily lives. A well-functioning society needs technology that can be used to manage this wealth of information and, in particular, investigate its credibility. This technology would be able to handle a wide range of tasks: extracting credible information related to a given topic, organizing this information, detecting its provenance, clarifying background, facts, and various related opinions and the distribution of them, and so on. Especially, as the Web is becoming a major source of information nowadays, it is necessary to provide efficient and reliable methods for evaluation of Web content's trustworthiness. * TOPICS * We invite submissions on any aspects of information credibility on the Web. Topics include, but are not limited to: - Information credibility evaluation and its applications - Content analysis for credibility evaluation - Sentiment analysis of content - Credibility of Web search results - Search models and applications for trustworthy content - Conflicting opinion detection and analysis - Credibility evaluation of user-generated content (e.g., Wikipedia) - Information credibility evaluation in social networks - Analysis of information dissemination - Estimation of author and publishing venue reputation - Spatial and temporal aspects in information credibility - Estimation of information age, provenance and validity - Sociological and psychological aspects of information credibility - Users study for information credibility - Risk assessment of information credibility - Multimedia content credibility - Persuasive technologies - Information credibility in online advertising and Internet monetization - Object identification on the Web * IMPORTANT DATES * - July 20, 2008 - Paper submission - August 10, 2008 - Notification of acceptance - August 15, 2008 - Camera-ready paper submission (hard deadline for publication in proceedings) - October 30, 2008 - Workshop * SUBMISSION * Submissions should be sent in English in PDF format via the submission website.
