Fourth Workshop on Algorithms and Models for the Web-Graph WAW2006


Nov. 30 -- Dec. 1, 2006

Banff International Research Institute (BIRS)

Banff, Alberta




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.
