In 2010 WebDB focused on Quality of Web Data and on Linked Data, but papers on all aspects of the web and databases were solicited, such as unstructured and semi-structured data management, data -extraction, -integration, -cleansing, and -mining, web applications and privacy, search and information retrieval, and distributed data management. REVIEW PROCESS By the final submission deadline of April 5, 2010, we had received 44 submissions by 105 authors. The program committee consisted of 28 renowned researchers from many different organizations. All papers received three reviews. The discussion phase was quite active and led us to finally accept 14 papers with an acceptance rate of 32%. Our selection emphasized papers on Web-based topics over papers that developed new techniques for XML data management, even if the average overall rating and reviews were slightly lower. The proceedings [3] are available at http://webdb2010.org/.
