                   Third International Workshop on REsource Discovery (RED)

                              8-10 November 2010, Paris, France
                   Joint to the 12th International Conference on Information 
                       Integration and Web-based Applications & Services

A resource corresponds to an information source such as a data repository or database management system 
(e.g., a query form or a textual search engine), a link between resources (an index or hyperlink), or a 
service such as an application or tool. Resources are characterized by core information including a name, 
a description of its input and its output (parameters or format), its address, and various additional 
properties expressed as metadata. Resource discovery is the process of identifying and locating existing 
resources that have a particular property. Machine-based resource discovery relies on crawling, clustering, 
and classifying resources discovered on the Web automatically. Resources are organized with respect to 
metadata that characterize their content (for data sources), their semantics (in terms of ontological 
classes and relationships), their characteristics (syntactical properties), their performance (with metrics 
and benchmarks), their quality (curation, reliability, trust), etc. Resource discovery systems allow the 
expression of queries to identify and locate resources that implement specific tasks. The First International 
Workshop on Resource Discovery aims at bringing together researchers, developers, and practitioners to discuss 
research issues and experience in developing and deploying concepts, applications, and solutions addressing 
various issues related to resource discovery. Papers presenting either theoretical or applicative material 
are expected. Because of the dynamic research and development effort towards supporting resource discovery 
for the life sciences, we expect to receive many contributions in the scope of this very exciting application 
domain. However, we encourage the submission of generic solutions or the presentation of application experiences 
other than related to life sciences.

Workshop key dates
Abstract submission deadline: June 1st
Submission deadline: June 15th
Acceptance notification: July 15th
Camera ready: July 31st 

Student Travel Grants
NSF is supporting the workshop with 3 travel grants for students of US universities who will be presenting a 
paper at RED 2010. Please submit your contributions to the workshop and select "student paper" and "apply for 
travel grant" in the paper submission Web site. Good luck!

Students who are considering submitting a paper and applying for a travel grant are invited to submit their 
paper abstract as soon as possible at: www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=red2010. 

RED papers will be published in a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science by Springer (waiting for final approval).

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
•	Classification, indexing, registration, and publication of resources
•	Resource metadata, semantics, statistics, digests, relevance measures, and metrics
•	Data and data source discovery
•	Service publication standards (UDDI, OWL-S, etc.), Web services, BioMoby services
•	Semantic resource discovery and ontology
•	Discovering resource on the public Web, on the private Web, on a grid
•	Discovering agents, peers, services
•	Cost-models for Resource Discovery
•	Performance an optimization and Resource Discovery
•	QoS-based Resource Discovery
•	Discovering and composing resources
•	Languages to support resource discovery
•	Interfaces to support resource discovery

Workshop information
The workshop will take place in Paris, France, November 8-10, 2010. Please visit the website for more information:
