Prof. Felix Neumann from the Hasso Plattner Institute will give a 
keynote “Data Profiling in the Relational World” at PROFILES 2020!



The Web of Data has seen tremendous growth recently. New forms of 
structured data have emerged in the form of knowledge graphs, Web 
markup, such as schema.org, as well as entity-centric data in Web 
tables. Considering these rich, heterogeneous and evolving data sources 
which cover a wide variety of domains, exploitation of Web Data becomes 
increasingly important in the context of various applications, including 
dataset search, question answering and fact verification. These 
applications require reliable information on dataset characteristics, 
including general metadata, quality features, statistical information, 
dynamics, licensing, and provenance. Lack of a thorough understanding of 
the nature, scope and characteristics of data from particular sources 
limits their take-up and reuse, such that applications are often limited 
and focused on well-known reference datasets.

The goal of the PROFILES’20 workshop is to bring together researchers 
and practitioners interested in the development of techniques for 
dataset profiling and deriving quality analytics, as well as performing 
dataset search and dataset retrieval on the Web while taking dataset 
profiles into account. We are interested in approaches to analyse, 
characterise and discover data sources. We aim to discuss technologies 
addressing data profiling and search – including semantics, information 
retrieval for Web Data (ranking algorithms and indexing), in particular 
in the context of decentralised and distributed systems, such as the 
Web. We want to facilitate a discussion around data search across 
formats and domain-specific applications.

PROFILES offers a highly interactive forum for researchers and 
practitioners, bringing together experts in the fields of the Web, 
Semantic Web, Web Data, Semantic Search, Databases, NLP, IR, and 
application domains. We envision the workshop as a forum for researchers 
and practitioners to come together and discuss common challenges and 
identify synergies for joint initiatives.



The topics of interest of PROFILES'20 include:

- Dataset profile representation (vocabularies, schemas)
- Profiling and assessment of novel forms of entity-centric web data
- Data summarisation
- Data quality analysis for search
- Topic profiling of datasets
- Dataset indexing and profiling approaches
- Novel applications using dataset profiles
- Dataset retrieval
- Search results presentation for datasets
- Semantic dataset search
- Evaluation of dataset search tools and algorithms
- Decentralised and distributed architectures and algorithms in data search
- Fusing, cleaning, ranking and refining dataset search results
- Approaches to personalisation in dataset search
- Scalability and performance of distributed data queries
- Usage of dataset profiles in search

In the PROFILES’20 edition we are also interested in application of 
dataset profiles in the areas of

- Machine Learning
- Multilingual data
- Historical and contemporary events



We welcome the following types of contributions.

- Short (up to 6 pages) and full (up to 15 pages) research papers
- Poster abstracts and system demonstrations should not exceed 4 pages

All submissions must be written in English and must be formatted 
according to the Springer LNCS proceedings style. Each submission will 
be reviewed by at least 3 members of the PC. Papers will be evaluated 
according to their significance, originality, technical content, style, 
clarity and relevance to the workshop.

Please submit your contributions electronically in PDF format via the 
Easychair system:



The complete set of papers will be published with the CEUR Workshop 
Proceedings (CEUR-WS.org), listed by the DBLP.
