The paper entitled “Archiving Data Objects using Web Feeds” by M. Oita and P. Senellart has been accepted for presentation at IWAW 2010

Web feeds, either in RSS or Atom XML-based formats, are evolving descriptive documents that characterize a dynamic hub of a Web site and help subscribers keep up with what is the most recent Web content of interest. This paper shows how Web feeds can be useful instruments for information extraction and Web page change detection. Web pages referenced by feed items are usually blog posts or news articles, data with a dynamic (then ephemeral) nature and which is clustered topically in a feed channel.
