Special issue on Web Data Quality

The goal of this special issue is to present innovative research in the areas of Web Data Quality Assessment and Web Data Cleansing. The editors of this special issue are Christian Bizer, Xin Luna Dong, Ihab Ilyas, and Maria-Esther Vidal. See the call for papers for more details.



New options for ACM authors to manage rights and permissions for their work

ACM introduces a new publishing license agreement, an updated copyright transfer agreement, and a new author-pays option which allows for perpetual open access through the ACM Digital Library. For more information, visit the ACM Author Rights webpage.


ICIQ 2015, the International Conference on Information Quality, will take place on July 24 in Cambrigde, MA at the MIT.

Experience and Challenge papers: JDIQ now accepts two new types of papers. Experience papers describe real-world applications, datasets and other experiences in handling poor quality data. Challenges papers briefly describe a novel problem or challenge for the IQ community. See calls for papers for details.

Special Issue on Provenance and Quality of Data and Information: The term provenance refers broadly to information about the origin, context, derivation, lineage, ownership or history of some artifact. The provenance of data is more specifically a form of structured metadata that records the activities involved in data production. The notion applies to a broad variety of data types, from database records, to scientific datasets, business transaction logs, web pages, social media messages, and more. At the same time, different definitions and measures of quality apply to each of these data types, in different domains.

The JDIQ guest editors are Paolo Missier (Newcastle University, UK, and Paolo Papotti (Qatar Computing Research Institut, Qatar,

Data and Analytics for a Learning Healthcare System


Data and Analytics Challenges for a Learning Healthcare System

Digital health data is both big and wide. We discuss three distinct challenges in applying data analytics toward the development of a learning healthcare system: data access, data curation, and development of new analytic techniques. We conclude with some interim approaches and future opportunities.

Data Quality Challenge: Toward a tool for string processing by examples

Many data-related activities at organizations of all sizes are concerned with low-level string processing, such as format transformation and validation, data cleaning, substring extraction and classification, and so on. Problems of this sort occur routinely in an one-off fashion as part of specific processes or activities that cannot be integrated in long-lived workflows, such as analysis of data gathered from the web or from other enterprise sources. These tasks are a vital ingredient of virtually every organization but are difficult to address efficiently: they are usually too simple to justify the cost and latency of a full-blown IT project, yet they are not simple enough to be solved by non-IT specialists. Several proposals have been made for tools capable of string processing by examples. Tools of this sort would constitute a significant step forward for many daily IT-related activities, but actually delivering their potential in practice is indeed very challenging.
