Final CfP: (meta)-data quality workshop (MDQual2107) @ TPDL2107
http://qualitics.org/mdqual2017
September 21, 2017, Thessaloniki, Greece

Part of the 21st International Conference on Theory and Practice of 
Digital Libraries (TPDL 2017), September 18-21, 2017, Thessaloniki, 
Greece, http://www.tpdl.eu/tpdl2017/

Submission Deadline: June 30, 2017


Description
----------------------
It is well known that we are rapidly moving towards a data driven world 
where all aspects in our everyday lives are data driven. In all domains 
from healthcare to retail and finance, data is collected, analysed and 
used to make decisions, usually utilizing machine learning techniques.

Data Science involves collecting, cleansing and integrating data prior 
of analysis. The quality of this data is critical and directly affects 
the outcome of all data science related tasks. Moreover, metadata is 
used to annotate data and facilitate data organization and retrieval. 
Metadata quality also directly affects retrieval and other operations 
(such as data integration) and workflows that are metadata driven.

Although various metrics have been proposed to measure metadata and data 
quality, in most cases they are highly subjective and/or domain 
specific. Moreover, they are directly related to the intented use of the 
data, meaning that a dataset could be of high quality for one use and of 
low quality for another. In all cases, (meta)data quality has a 
tremendous impact on data science related tasks and ultimately in 
everyday life.

The proposed workshop aims at exploring the various quality issues found 
in people working with both data and metadata across domains. An 
inter-­‐disciplinary workshop where data scientists across different 
domains will meet and:

share and exchange experiences regarding (meta)data quality
identify patterns in (meta)data quality
share methodologies and metrics that will help to measure (meta)-­‐data 
quality
share / propose tools that can be used effectively in improving 
(automatically) (meta)-­‐data quality.

This initiative aims at bringing together a community of data scientists 
that have expertise in a diverse set of domains such as archives and 
libraries, healthcare, biology, humanities, computer science and 
engineering, environment, agriculture, economics, etc.

Apart from sharing metrics and methods to identify and resolve quality 
issues and evaluate datasets, the proposed workshop aims at promoting 
the use of tools and services for the automatic measurement and 
improvement of (meta)data quality. Although few such tools are available 
in the market, a good number of standalone micro-­‐services are 
available and can be used to automatically improve (meta)data quality.

Topics:

We welcome position papers expressing the data and metadata quality 
needs from content providers (libraries, archives, museums, public and 
private sector organizations that manage multimedia content). Moreover 
we welcome research papers that describe, methods, metrics, services and 
tools for measuring and ensuring quality. The workshop will provide a 
session for demonstrating implemented systems and services in order to 
trigger discussions on real world needs and running systems.

All papers submitted should be original and of high quality, addressing 
issues in areas such as:

Data and metadata quality measurement methods
Data and metadata quality requirements for e-research, health, education 
and digital humanities, etc
Metrics for data quality measurement in for e-research, 
health, education and digital humanities, etc
Metrics for metadata quality measurement in for e-research, 
health, education and digital humanities, etc
Tools and services for measuring quality
Tools and services for improving quality
Services for automatic data and metadata enrichment
