TELERISE: 4th International Workshop on TEchnical and LEgal aspects of data pRIvacy and SEcurity
part of BigDataMAPS: The 1st International Workshop on Advances on Big Data Management, Analytics, Data Privacy and Security
Affiliated workshop with ADBIS 2018

NEW: TELERISE and WABiD* are merged in BigDataMAPS: The 1st International Workshop on Advances on Big Data Management, Analytics, Data Privacy and Security NEW: DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 16th OF MAY


BigDataMAPS seeks to promote novel contributions in the field of big data processing and management, big data analytics and big data privacy and security. The aim of this workshop is to become a regular, interdisciplinary exchange forum for researchers and practitioners interested in big data as a research object. By exchanging research results, experiences, and products, the ultimate goal is to conceive new trends and ideas on designing, implementing and evaluating solutions for efficient, safe, reliable and compliant information sharing, with an eye to the cross-relations between ICT and regulatory aspects of data management. Information sharing is essential for today's business and societal transactions. Nevertheless, such a sharing should not violate the security and privacy requirements either dictated by Law to protect data subjects or by internal regulations, which can be provided both at the organization and at the individual level. An effectual, rapid, and unfailing electronic data sharing among different parties, while protecting legitimate rights on these data, is a key issue with several shades. Among them, how to translate the high-level law obligations, business constraints, and users' requirements into system-level security and privacy policies, and how to engineer efficient and practical technical solutions for policy definition and enforcement.

Title. Big Data Variety: On-Demand Data Integration

Abstract. As big data systems get more complex, the data variety challenge has become the driving factor in current big data projects. From a technical perspective, data variety mainly boils down to the data integration problem, which, unfortunately, is far away from being a resolved problem. Current efforts highlight the need to broaden the perspective beyond the data community and use semantic-aware formalisms, such as knowledge graphs, to tackle this problem. In this talk, we will revise the current state-of-the-art of the data variety challenge and present recent solutions to manage the problem. Short bio. Oscar Romero is a tenure-track lecturer at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona. His research interests lie in business intelligence, big data and the semantic Web. More specifically, he has been working on data warehousing, NoSQL (and any technology beyond relational databases), bridging big data management and analytics, open data platforms (mostly at the database level), recommendation systems and semantic-aware systems (based or exploiting semantic formalisms such as ontology languages or RDF). He is also interested in agile methodologies and formalisms to incorporate non-technical people in the design, maintenance and evolution of database systems.

Submission and Publication

Submitted papers must be written in English and must contain results that have not previously published nor concurrently submitted to a journal or conference with published proceedings. Any partial overlap with any published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated. Submissions, as pdf files, are limited to 12 pages. The selection of accepted contributions will be based on peer-review by the PC. Accepted papers will be published by Springer in “Communications in Computer and Information Science”. We plan to invite selected workshop papers for publication in a journal. Papers must be submitted electronically through EasyChair at

It is required that each accepted paper be presented at the workshop by one of its authors. Authors of accepted papers are required to submit the final, camera-ready versions of their papers following the Communications in Computer and Information Science guidelines .
