The problem of poor data quality in databases, data warehousing and
information systems largely and indistinctly affects every application
domain. Many data processing tasks (such as information integration,
data sharing, information retrieval, and knowledge discovery from
databases) require various forms of data preparation and consolidation
with complex data processing techniques, because the data input to the
algorithms is assumed to conform to nice data distributions,
containing no missing, inconsistent or incorrect values. This leaves a
large gap between the available "dirty" data and the available
machinery to process the data for the application purposes.

The purpose of Quality in Databases (QDB) workshop is a qualified
forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss and get to know the
most innovative and advanced experiences for detecting data anomalies
and assessing, monitoring, improving, and maintaining the quality of
information. More information on the workshop can be found at the
workshop Website.

The topics of the workshop will include, but will not be limited to:
- Duplicate detection, entity resolution, and entity reconciliation
- Conflict resolution and data fusion
- Data quality models and algebra
- Quality-aware query languages and query processing techniques
- Quality-aware analytics solutions
- Data scrubbing, data standardization, data cleaning techniques
- Data quality in multi-database settings
- Relevance of data quality in the database area
- Role of metadata in quality measurement
- Data quality in Web applications
- Quality of information on the Web
- Data quality mining
- Quality of scientific, geographical, and multimedia databases
- Privacy-preserving data quality management
- Data quality benchmarks
- Data quality assessment, measures and improvement methodologies


For the QDB 2010 edition of the workshop, in addition to regular research
papers, we would like to promote the presentations of research-in-progress
papers and posters. For this reason, we accept three categories for submission:
- research papers (should not exceed 10 pages)
- short papers (up to 6 pages)
- posters (up to 3 pages).

In line with our main intent for fruitful discussions and exchanges, in addition to previously unpublished material that can be submitted in any of the above formats, the program committee welcomes short paper submissions and posters that include ideas and material that may have appeared elsewhere, insofar as they are judged to be a sound and valuable contribution to the discussion. Papers to be included in the QDB workshop's research sessions will be reviewed by at least three people from the program committee.

Depending on the number and quality of submissions, the best papers of the workshop may be recommended for fast-tracking to the ACM Journal of Data and Information Quality (JDIQ).

Paper submissions should be made on-line through QDB 2010's CMT paper
submission site:

The papers have to be formatted according the VDLB formatting guidelines (see All papers must be submitted in PDF. Please ensure that any special fonts used are included in the submitted documents. It is essential that the submitted papers print without difficulty on a variety of printers using Adobe Acrobat Reader.

In case of paper acceptance, the authors agree that at least one of them will register for the workshop and present the paper.
