Summary

As in the first seminar on this topic, the aim of the seminar was to bring together people from the areas related to semi-structured data. However, besides the presentation of recent work, this time the main goal was to identify the main lines of a common framework for future foundational work on semi-structured data. These lines of research are summarized below.

The workshop was of a very interdisciplinary nature with invitees from databases, structured documents, programming languages, information retrieval and formal language theory. Several of the lectures were presented by PhD students. We had four invited speakers and a panel on research evaluation. Due to strong connections between topics treated at this workshop, many of the participants initiated new cooperations and research projects.
