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.
The aim of the 2006 Workshop on Algorithms and Models for the Web-Graph
(WAW2006) is to further the understanding of these Web-induced graphs,
and stimulate the development of high-performance algorithms and applications
that use the graph structure of the Web. The workshop is meant both
to foster an exchange of ideas among the diverse set of researchers
already involved in this topic, and to act as an introduction for the
larger community to the state of the art in this area.
This is the fourth in a series of very successful workshops on this
topic. WAW 2002 and 2004 were held in conjunction with the Annual IEEE
Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science (FOCS). WAW2003 was
held in conjunction with the Twelfth International World Wide Web Conference.
