The Internet is gradually turning into a public ``utility'' in
people's daily life, and the Web has served as a catalyst in this
process. With more and more emerging applications and architectures
on the Internet, such as sensor data acquisition, peer-to-peer data
sharing and grid computing, it is essential to revitalize and enrich
the Internet data management arena.
This track aims to examine the state of the art in Internet data
management, focusing on emerging applications in addition to
traditional web data management. The underlying theme of the track is
in building systems that are easy to use and are scalable. These
usability/scalability issues will be considered in many dimensions:
manageability, heterogeneity, performance, reliability, device
capabilities, user behaviors, and data characteristics.
We solicit both regular research papers and application experience
papers in an effort to bring together academics and industrial
practitioners. Papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three members
of the program committee.
