Background and Goals

Nowadays, Information technologies are becoming one of the most important aspects for organizations. The business value of the data stored in the company databases has been growing to become one of the most important assets of the company. These data represent one crucial asset for tactic, strategic and operational decisions. Due to this important role of the data, companies should assure the access to the data to several users guaranteeing the right levels of quality they need to accomplish the task they have to do.  

Data Quality is a crucial issue in assessing the quality of business decisions support systems. Many aspects are related with the quality of the data, such as integrity, completeness, actuality and several other factors that make this kind of quality a multidimensional issue and a difficult issue.

Data Security is another crucial aspect on information systems, not only because it affects Data Quality, but also because current information systems store sensitive and private data that should be treated rightly.

Also, as Data Quality and Data Security are not independent concepts, the relationship between both concepts is worth to be analyzed in order to give organizations some tools that can help in assuring both data dimensions.

The workshop intends to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners working on approaches, methods, techniques, guidelines, and tools for auditing, measuring, predicting, evaluating, controlling, assuring and improving the quality and security of data.

We cordially invite researchers and practitioners to submit original research, survey or experience papers to DQS2009


The workshop will consists on small presentations of about 20 minutes of the accepted contributions. After the presentations, there will be some questions and debate.


The accepted papers are going to appear in CIKM Workshops Proceedings published by ACM either as full (up to 8 pages) or short papers (up to 4 pages) depending on the review results. At least one author of each accepted submission should register by the end of the early registration period for the paper to be included in the proceedings.
