KEYNOTE ABSTRACT: Towards Quality-Aware Data Science and its Application to Health Data, concerns one of the key challenges in data science pipelines, i.e., how to ensure the quality of the results and understand their relationship with the quality of the analyzed inputs. Data collection and acquisition in several scientific domains, such
as for instance in health and life sciences domains, tend to often introduce errors into the data, such as violations of business rules, typos, missing values and replicated entries. As an example, data collected for the patients’ signals might exhibit peculiar features that need to be taken into account within the analytical and inference processes. Patient’s healthcare records might exhibit inconsistencies that need to be properly quantified and accounted for in the subsequent analysis.

We present our latest results on enhancing the quality of querying and inference processes on scientific data and beyond. Among the others, we operate on real-life data of patients from several hospitals in the EU and provide the domain experts with useful data science and learning techniques that can help them with their diagnoses and analyses.
First, inconsistency-aware annotations can improve the input to analytical processes. These annotations are further exploited during query processing in order to enhance the output of queries with inconsistency degrees. Second, feature-based similarities among time series corresponding to patients’ signals help to better identify groups of patients and to assess their risks. Third, logic-based declarative privacy-preserving data integration allows to migrate clinical data between hospitals while ensuring privacy guarantees. In all cases, our research aims at providing the caregivers with a better understanding of their clinical data thanks to the improved outcomes of the performed analytical and data science processes.

Her current research interests are on the interplay between relational and graph-oriented data paradigms, particularly query processing, data integration and learning for both structured and unstructured data models and their impact on real-world scientific data science applications. She is involved in several grants at Lyon 1 University, including French, EU H2020 and industrial grants. She has also co-authored more than 150 publications in top venues of the data management field along with two books (“Schema Matching and Mapping” edited by Springer in 2011 and “Querying Graphs” edited by Morgan Claypool in 2018) and an invited paper in ACM Sigmod Record 2018. She was the Program Chair of ACM Sigmod 2022 and is currently an Associate Editor for both Proceedings of VLDB and IEEE ICDE. She is also an Associate Editor for several journals, such as the VLDB Journal, ACM TODS, Distributed and Parallel Databases and Frontiers in Big Data. She is currently the President of the EDBT Executive Board and was a former member of the ICDT council.

Aims and scope.

Text are important sources of information and communication in diverse domains. The intelligent, efficient and secure use of this information requires, in most cases, the transformation of unstructured textual data into data sets with some structure, and organized according to an appropriate schema that follows the semantics of an application domain. Indeed, solving the problems of modern society requires interdisciplinary research and information cross-referencing, thus surpassing the simple provision of unstructured data. There is a need for representations that are more flexible, subtle and context-sensitive, which can also be easily accessible via consultation tools and evolve according to these principles. In this context, consultation requires robust and efficient processing of requests, which may involve information analysis, with quality, consistency, and privacy preservation guarantees. Knowledge bases can be built as these new generation infrastructures which support data science queries on a user-friendly framework and are capable of providing the required machinery for advised decision-making.

The workshop focuses on transforming data into information and then into knowledge. The idea is to gather researchers in NLP (Natural Language Processing), DB (Databases), and AI (Artificial Intelligence) to discuss two main problems :

  • how to extract information from textual data and represent it in knowledge bases;
  • how to propose intelligent methods for handling and maintaining these databases with new forms of requests, including efficient, flexible, and secure analysis mechanisms, adapted to the user, and with quality and privacy preservation guarantees.

This workshop focuses on all aspects concerning these modern infrastructures, giving particular attention (but not limited to) to data related to health and environmental domains.

Papers must be submitted via EASY CHAIR : HERE ( track for DOING: 3rd Workshop on Intelligent Data)

DOING workshop intends to accept short (limited to 6-8 pages) and long (limited to 12 pages) papers. DOING reserves the right to accept as short papers those submitted as long, describing interesting and innovative ideas but still requiring further technical development. Papers should be written in English, formatted in Latex and present substantially original results. We adopt a double blind review policy: the papers submitted for review MUST NOT contain the authors’ names, affiliations, or any information that may disclose the authors’ identity. Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates (you can download the templates available on the bottom of that page).

ADBIS 2022 follows a Diversity and Inclusion policy that invites authors to adopt inclusive language in their papers and presentations ( and We also kindly ask all participants to adopt a proper code on conduct (

Accepted papers will be published in the Springer CCIS series and the best papers will be invited to a special issue of the journal Computer Science and Information Systems.
