Description

1st International Workshop on Modelling and Visualization of XML and Semantic Web Data
(MoViX'09) August 31 - September 4, 2009, Linz, Austria
http://ulita.ms.mff.cuni.cz/ws/MoViX09/

to be held in conjunction with DEXA 2009

XML and semantic data formats (RDF) are currently in the main focus of many researchers
who deal with their management, processing, updating, exploitation, etc. However, with
their growing popularity, there occurs rises the need for efficient and usable methods
and tools for their design and visualization. Such approaches help the user to better
understand the structure and semantics of the data and, hence, to propose more appropriate
processing methods. In addition, various types of data models, conceptual schemas and
visualisation techniques enable users to omit unnecessary technical details such as correct
nesting of XML elements, case sensitivity, matching of parenthesis, etc. and to focus on
important aspects of the particular application such as precise abstraction of the reality,
data semantics, etc.

Naturally, most of the existing general approaches to data visualization and modelling
can be adapted for XML and Semantic Web data as well. However, since their structure,
semantics as well as processing is relatively special, in certain cases it is useful or
even necessary to propose a brand new approach suitable for these specific features.
Consequently, a wide area of unsolved issues opens. Primarily, since all the approaches
are highly related to user interaction, the key problem is how to enable a user to state
his/hers requirements. For instance, in case of RDF data visualization, we encounter the
problem of their complexity and amount. Or, in case of modelling of XML data, we need to
cope with problems such as finding the mapping between a model and an XML schema or
reverse engineering of a model from XML data, where the user-interaction is crucial.

Even though XML and Semantic Web data processing is the main topic of many conferences
around the world, the community dealing particularly with XML and Semantic Web data
design and visualization and related issues is still scattered. Similarly, there are
conferences that focus on particular types of data modelling in general, however they
focus on all related topics and the papers dealing with XML and Semantic Web aspects
form only a special group. Therefore, we believe that this specialized workshop will
enable to bring all the related topics together and provide an opportunity to deal
with the know issues more thoroughly, to share the respective ideas and to discuss them
from various points of view. On the other hand, since correct modelling of data and the
knowledge of their structure as well as semantics is one of the key aspects for their
successful management, we believe that holding the workshop in conjunction with DEXA
conference will also provide the opportunity for sharing the ideas with data management
experts and finding new issues and challenges on both sides.

We invite original submissions from research communities dealing with different
theoretical and applied aspects of XML and Semantic Web data visualization and
modelling. Areas of interests include, but are not limited to:

* Conceptual modelling and visualization of XML data
* Visualisation, browsing and exploration of Semantic Web data
* Visualisation of ontologies
* Formal models for XML and Semantic Web data
* Applications of existing visualisation methods for XML and Semantic Web data
* User participation in conceptual modelling of XML data
* Evolution of conceptual models of XML data
* Languages for description of visualisation of XML and Semantic Web data
* Tools for data visualization and conceptual modelling of XML and Semantic Web data
* Tools and methods for analysis of real-world XML and Semantic Web data
