Call For Papers

In conjunction with the 26th IEEE International Conference on Data Engineering, (ICDE 2010) March 1-6, 2010

Virtually every enterprise, scientific domain, or health care provider will assert that information integration
is their most pressing information technology need. Yet despite the fact that research in data integration has
been ongoing for over 20 years, we see few success stories in the real world.

There are many reasons for this: perhaps predominantly that (1) integration encompasses a wide variety of tasks
and domains, and there is a delicate balance between general solutions and domain-specific ones; and (2) general
solutions typically require a combination of techniques from a range of communities, including databases, information
retrieval, machine learning, and knowledge representation or Semantic Web. For instance, integrating contact center
call transcripts with structured (transaction and profile) data in real-time requires efficient techniques which
can work on noisy transcribed data, integrating Web data may need to deal with adversarial content providers,
and integrating genetic data may require similarity matching on gene sequences.

In recent years there has been a new emphasis on best-effort systems that combine automated approaches with user
refinement or feedback, on integration techniques that combine the traditional stages of integration, and on
using machine learning and other techniques with database concepts to address the needs of integration. These
new approaches, generally targeting certain subclasses of the information integration problem, are highly promising.

The aim of the workshop is to encourage researchers from the information integration community to present novel
issues and techniques related to applying information integration in different areas (especially in the context
of integrating structured and unstructured data). The workshop will serve as a confluence of new ideas that will
help drive research in the area of information integration from being 'generic' to being more focused, interactive,
and realistic. We invite papers from researchers and practitioners working in information integration, data
warehousing, privacy and trustworthy data systems and related areas to submit their original papers in this
workshop. The main topics include, but are not limited to:

? Schema discovery and mapping
? Handling data uncertainty and reliability in integration
? Information integration issues in noisy unstructured text
? Entity Discovery over poor quality of data
? Data materialization and virtualization approaches
? Record Linkage Issues
? Constraint based data integration
? Real-Time Information Integration
? Interactive and best-effort integration
? Leveraging linked open data
? Leveraging Semantic web
? Actionable Information Integration
? Context Oriented Information Integration
? Event Based Information Integration
? User centric Information Integration
? Integration issues in Peer-to-peer networks
? Privacy Preserving Information Integration
? Streaming Data Integration
? Enterprise specific applications in all domains
? Information Mash-up and Web2.0
? Real-Time business intelligence over integrated data
? Semantic search over integrated data


Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered for publication
in any other forum. We also encourage submissions describing work-in-progress or lessons learnt in practice.
Submissions must clearly identify the nature of the paper as research, experience, or position. All submitted
papers will be peer reviewed and evaluated on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of
expression. By submitting a paper, authors explicitly agree that at least one of them will register for the
workshop and present the paper.

Submissions must be in the standard ICDE format. The papers can be 4-6 pages in length. We also encourage early
papers on novel work. Please submit your paper through the CMT site:
The accepted papers will be published in the ICDE proceedings (CD version).
