Information Management in the Web

Today, users can use a large number of tools and interfaces to find and manage information on the Web. However, many tasks require still a significant human effort, such as the integration of data across different, heterogeneous web sources.

This seminar discusses the recent advances in information management in the web. The topics will address the following areas:

  • Information Extraction from Unstructured Documents
  • Metadata Management
  • Information Integration
  • Semantic Web
  • Uncertainty and probablistic databases
  • Data Stream Management

The seminar will be organized as a block seminar at the end of the semester. During the semester, students will have to prepare abstracts, draft and final version of the seminar paper. Details about the schedule will be announced later.

The seminar addresses master and bachelor (in 5th or later semester) students in Computer Science (Informatik) or related study programmes (e.g., SSE, MI). Presentations should be done in English. The seminar paper should be also written in English, in some cases a seminar paper in German might be also possible.


Basic knowledge of database systems and data modeling is helpful.
