International Workshop on New Trends in Information Integration (NTII 2008)
28th August 2008, New Zealand

http://www.cse.iitb.ac.in/~grajeev/ntii/index.html

In conjunction with the 34th International Conference on Very Large Data
Bases (VLDB 2008)
24th-30th August 2008


Information Integration is a well studied subject in academia. However, its
use in practice is not as widespread as one would have expected - as per
Gartner around 80% of the data in enterprises today is unstructured which
is not integrated with the structured data. The reason for this gap between
theory and practice is that researchers have explored the generic
algorithms required to handle the problem of information integration. Each
domain, however, has its own unique set of requirements and challenges
which severely restrict the integration of structured and unstructured data
in practice. E.g., integrating contact center call audio with structured
(transaction and profile) data in real time requires efficient techniques
which are highly scalable (due to the huge customer profile data) and work
on noisy transcribed data; integrating customer emails with customer
profile information require techniques which work in the presence of
partial user information (present in the e!
 mail); whereas certain domains require information integration techniques
to be aware of the users' access rights and perform integration in an event
based manner. Such requirements lead to the development of new algorithms
and approaches for doing information integration across structured and
unstructured data. These new approaches will govern the success of
information integration in practice as they are motivated on real problems.


The aim of this workshop is to encourage researchers in 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 to present new ideas to researchers which would help drive the
research in information integration from being "generic" to being more
focused and realistic. We invite papers from researchers and practitioners
working in information integration, data warehousing, active databases,
privacy and trustworthy data systems and related areas to submit their
original papers in this workshop. Suggested topics include, but are not
limited to, the following:

- Schema discovery and mapping
- Handling data uncertainty and reliability in integration
- Information integration issues on noisy unstructured text
- Entity Discovery over poor quality of data
- Data materialization and virtualization approaches
- Record Linkage Issues
- Constraint based data integration
- 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 Web 2.0
- Real-Time business intelligence over integrated data
- Semantic search over integrated data
- Real-Time Information Integration


PAPER SUBMISSION

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
practise. 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 VLDB format and should not exceed 10
pages. Each submission must be accompanied by a separate cover letter with
title, key words, every authors name and affiliation, and must specify a
contact author along with postal address, phone & fax numbers, and email
address. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically as PDF or PS files
via email to Mukesh Mohania (mkmukesh [at] in.ibm.com). Each submission will be
acknowledged by e-mail. If acknowledgment is not received within 3 days,
please contact the organizers.
