IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering (TKDE) Special Issue on Web Technologies (Scheduled Publication 

Date: January/February, 1999) 


------- Information engineering began a new era with the birth of web technologies. The web is the universe of network-accessible data and the embodiment of human knowledge. In addition to information dissemination, it has attracted much interest in user support, resource discovery and collaborative work areas. By embracing within its data model most information in previous networked information systems, the web is currently the most advanced and widely-used information system deployed on the Internet. It is also an architecture which will incorporate any future advances in data technology, including new protocols, object types, data formats, knowledge representations, and information retrieval methods. This special issue deals with the use of engineering techniques and methodologies in the design, development and assessment of information systems in the web environment. Of particular interests are data management and knowledge engineering techniques for web-related, data-intensive applications. Innovative research methods, clever development procedures, and profound empirical results are all sought for this special issue. Scope: 

----- Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: web accessibility scalability of web servers intelligent agents intelligent search engines resource management user interface http distributed object technology interoperability architecture issues propagation, caching and replication naming and resolution techniques real-time multimedia support privacy and preferences reliability and error recovery security electronic commerce metrics and measurement
