This book constitutes the joint refereed proceedings of six workshops held in conjunction with the 8th International Conference on Web Information Systems Engineering, WISE 2007 in Nancy, France, in December 2007.
The 44 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions for presentation in the six workshops. The workshops focus on the effective and efficient management and transformation of scientific data in the life sciences. They discuss issues related to information acquisition through collaborative Web crawling, classification, and clustering. Methods and techniques to support governance and compliance in Web information systems are considered. They further focus on annotations of services that facilitate service requestors to easily find and use them. Models and mechanisms for personalization as well as personalized access and context acquisition are considered. Finally, concepts, models and languages to improve Web information systems with respect to their usability and accessibility are investigated.
