XML has gained lot of attention from database and Web researchers who are actively working in one or more of the emerging XML areas. XML data are self-describing, and provide a platform independent means to describe data and therefore, can transport data from one platform to another. XML documents can be mapped to one more of the existing data models such as relational and object-relational, and XML views can be produced dynamically from the pre-existing data models. XML queries can be mapped to the queries of the underlying models and can use their optimization features. XML keyword search has inspired integrated research efforts of both database technologies and information retrieval techniques. XML data integration is useful for E-commerce applications such as comparison-shopping, which requires further study in the domain of data, schema and query based integration. XML change management is another important area that has attracted attention in the context of web warehouse. XML has been in use in upcoming areas such web services, sensor and biological data management.
Having successfully organized the previous three XMLDM workshops in conjunction with WAIM 2010 and APWEB 2011, we continue to pursue the success of the fourth workshop with the WAIM 2012 conference in Harbin.
The XML Data Management workshop focuses on the convergence of database technology with XML technology, and brings together academics, practitioners, users and vendors to discuss the use and synergy between these technologies. We are pleased to invite original contributions in this area. One of the key objectives of this workshop is to bring together researchers in this area who can share their views under this workshop. We solicit papers with important new insights and experiences of developing tools and techniques for managing XML data.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- XML data integration
- XML data storage and indexing
- XML keyword search
- Data Management on probabilistic XML data
- XML query languages and optimization
- XML views and data publishing
- XML applications in semantic web
- XML data mining
- XML change management
- XML views and data mappings
- XML data compression
- XML in Web services
- XML benchmark and performance studies
- XML applications in new domains- sensor and biological data management
- XML in cloud computing
