2nd Workshop on Advances in Accessing Deep Web (ADW 2009)
in conjunction with
12th International Conference on Business Information Systems (BIS 2009)

Poznan, Poland
April 27, 28 or 29, 2009



Deadline for submissions: February 1, 2009


The main way of accessing content on contemporary Web is by means of
general purpose search engines. However, for reasons such as: password
protection, FORM based interfaces and usage of dynamic client-side
technologies (JavaScript, AJAX, Flash, Adobe Air, and others), a
significant portion of modern Web content cannot be indexed and thus is
unavailable to the majority of Web users.
In many cases these information sources that cannot be indexed, known
altogether under the names of Deep Web, Hidden Web or Invisible Web, are
better structured and of better quality than indexable surface Web
sources. First attempts to index deep Web sources are proving that the
task is not trivial.
Started recently, Deep Web research combines challenges from several
active research areas including information retrieval, information
extraction, hypertext, Web engineering, data integration, database
technologies and the Semantic Web.
The goal of this workshop is to bring researchers and practitioners
together to explore the issues and challenges related to domain
dependent and independent Deep Web empirical studies, methodologies and
techniques of accessing and processing Deep Web content, as well as
their real life applications.
