** Selected papers will be invited to a special issue in the
ACM Journal on Data and Information Quality **


Call for Papers
===============

Data quality problems arise frequently when data is integrated from disparate
sources. In the context of Big Data applications, data quality is becoming
more important because of the unprecedented volume, large variety, and high
velocity. The challenges caused by volume and velocity of Big Data have been
addressed by many research projects and commercial solutions and can be
partially solved by modern, scalable data management systems. However, variety
remains to be a daunting challenge for Big Data Integration and requires also
special methods for data quality management. Variety (or heterogeneity) exists
at several levels: at the instance level, the same entity might be described
with different attributes; at the schema level, the data is structured with
various schemas; but also at the level of the modeling language, different
data models can be used (e.g., relational, XML, or a document-oriented JSON
representation). This might lead to data quality issues such as consistency,
understandability, or completeness. The heterogeneity of data sources in the
Big Data Era requires new integration approaches which can handle the large
volume and speed of the generated data as well as the variety and quality of
the data. Thus, heterogeneity and data quality are seen as challenges for many
Big Data applications. While in some applications, a limited data quality for
individual data items does not cause serious problems when a huge amount of
data is aggregated, data quality problems in data sources are often revealed
by the integration of these sources with other information. Data quality has
been coined as 'fitness for use'; thus, if data is used in another context
than originally planned, data quality might become an issue. Similar
observations have been also made for data warehouses which lead to a separate
research area about data warehouse quality.

The workshop QDB 2016 aims at discussing recent advances and challenges on
data quality management in database systems, and focuses especially on
problems related to Big Data Integration and Big Data Quality.

Paper Submission
================

QDB welcomes full paper submission of original and previously unpublished
research. All submissions will be peer-reviewed, and once accepted will be
included in the workshop proceedings.

Submission Guidelines:
* Full-length papers are accepted through the online submission system of the
workshop. Full papers can be up to 8 pages in length including all figures,
tables and references. It should be submitted as a PDF according to the
VLDB format. Templates can be found at
http://vldb2016.persistent.com/formatting_guidelines.php

* We also encourage submission of short papers (up to 4 pages) reporting
work in progress.

* Submissions in PDF are to be uploaded to the workshop's EasyChair submission site:
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=qdb16


Workshop Proceedings
====================

The proceedings of the workshop will be published online as a volume of the
CEUR Workshop Proceedings (http://www.ceur-ws.org, ISSN 1613-0073), a well-known
website for publishing workshop proceedings. It is indexed by the major
publication portals, such as Citeseer, DBLP and Google Scholar.

Furthermore, the best papers of the workshop will be invited to a special issue
to the ACM Journal of Data and Information Quality (http://jdiq.acm.org/) to
submit an extended version of their work.
