     Webdam and MoDaS"

 In cooperation with:

      I-CORE Program of the Planning and
      Budgeting Committee and The Israel
      Science Foundation (grant No. 4/11)

      The European Associated Lab (Laboratoire
      Europeen Associe) LEA FILOFOCS - French-
      Israeli Laboratory on Foundations of Computer
      Science (CNRS and Tel-Aviv University).

   This meeting will be joint between Webdam (in its last year) and
   MoDaS (inits first). The meeting will bring together members of the
   two projects with the best world specialists in the topics.

   Meeting Topic:

   We are being overwhelmed by the masses of information that are
   available. Typically pieces of information are noisy: imprecise,
   incomplete, inconsistent. This may be the case for global information
   on the public Web as well as for private information in social networks
   systems. We are concerned with combining all the techniques we can
   to evaluate the quality of information and work to improve it. This
   will typically involve both reasoning in an imprecise environment
   (asstressed by Webdam) and relying on crowd participation (as
   advocated by MoDaS). The workshop will bring together the two
   approaches with an emphasis on the intersection of the two topics
   but also considering their disjunction to bring the two groups up to
   date with the two topics.

   The workshop will serve both as an assessment for Webdam and
   a brainstorming for MoDaS.
