It is our pleasure to announce that Dr. Valentina Janev will participate in a Panel Discussion on Data ecosystems, as part of the forthcoming First International Workshop on Data Ecosystems in conjunction with 48th International Conference on Very Large Data Bases (VLDB) Conferences 2022, Sydney, Australia (and hybrid) - September 05-09, 2022.
Data centricity is playing a fundamental role in the definition of new and disruptive business models. Many organizations in public and private sectors have successfully adopted information technologies to build huge repositories of data that they can analyze to support decision making and gain competitive advantage. However, despite the paramount relevance of data-driven technologies, organizations demand alliance-driven infrastructures capable of supporting controlled data exchange across diverse stakeholders and transparent data management. Data ecosystems (DEs) are the future of data management since they allow companies to share data and collaborate in order to get valuable insights. Such benefits can be achieved only with a proper approach for generating and sharing knowledge. Thus, DEs aim to solve issues like managing unstructured and heterogeneous data, offering various data-centric services, including query processing and data analytics, exchanging and integrating data data while preserving personal data privacy, data security, and organizational data sovereignty. Hence, to implement a data ecosystem manifold challenges regarding, amongst others, data management, data quality, trust, data exchange, data integration, machine learning or knowledge-based systems have to be solved and integrated. In this workshop, we welcome innovative contributions which further the idea of data ecosystems and tackle the challenges which consequently result from the complexity of data ecosystems.
This will be an excellent opportunity for promotion of Institute Mihajlo Pupin and the results obtained in SINERGY and other recent EU projects.
