Intelligent information integration has continued to challenge research for over 30 years. While data integration processes are now well understood and widely used, a great deal of interest in Big Data Integration requires much higher levels of automation to limit the need for skilled human labor. In recent years, much of the big data work has focused on volume and speed to consider the size of the dataset. Indeed, the problems of variety, speed, and truthfulness are equally important in addressing the heterogeneity, diversity, and complexity of data in the big data integration process, where intelligent information integration and semantic technologies can be explored to address these problems.
Therefore, the purpose of this Special Issue is to publish high-quality research, from academic and industrial stakeholders, for disseminating innovative solutions that explore how big data can leverage data integration, i.e., what the challenges and opportunities are arising from adapting and transferring data integration methodologies and technologies to the big data context.
Original, high-quality contributions that have not yet been published, submitted, or are not currently under review by other journals or peer-reviewed conferences are sought.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following topics:
- Automating data cleaning and pre-processing for big data;
- Intelligent information integration from big data on the web;
- Data quality issues in big data integration;
- Scalability issues: intelligent information integration for big data;
- Metadata integration and management;
- Entity resolution and data fusion for big data;
- Semantic for big data extraction, transformation, and integration.
