Call for Demos: The First International Workshop on Big Data Discovery and

Traditionally, data warehouses have been used to provide business users
ways to consolidate information from different sources for analysis and
reporting. For getting data ready for analysis, ETL
(extract-transfrom-load) is used which involves reading data from different
sources, cleaning the data, converting the format of the input data so that
it conforms to the target database, and writing it to the target database.
Big data paradigm is changing this problem due to three V’s: volume,
velocity, and variety. In big data paradigm, potentially a large number of
data sources and data assets are considered for analytics. One needs to
discover, integrate, and analyze large volumes of diverse data quickly.
Finding relevant data for analytics is an important data discovery problem.
Data diversity makes this problem difficult. The diversity of the data can
be due to data model; type of data—structured, semi-structured, or
unstructured; enterprise data vs. open public data; integrating social
media data, etc. One also needs to handle data quality and data governance
issues. In this workshop we invite demonstrations displaying techniques for
identifying relevant sets of data, finding different kinds of relationships
between structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data, curating the
data for further analysis, integrating data using various join, union, and
merge techniques, validating the integrated data, and analyzing it, from
various industry domains.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
o        Cleaning big data
o        Integration of big heterogeneous data
o        Metadata extraction
o        Automated rule generation
o        Curating data
o        Data discovery
o        Provisioning and data lineage
We welcome good demonstrations, including of previously accepted
papers/demos, for this workshop. Authors need to send manuscript describing
the demo in up to 2 pages (2 column format) inclusive of all references and
figures. Manuscripts must be written in English, and formatted according to
IEEE proceedings templates. Please see the workshop website
