Workshop on Human-Centred Data Management

A discussion-oriented workshop will be held in Sydney, Australia on Tuesday 9 June 2015. Our focus is on human-centred data management, which encompasses both the management of data about people, and how people interact with data. Of course, we are especially excited about looking at how people interact with data about people! Among many topics of importance, we will be looking at privacy and access control for personal data, making usable interfaces for querying or tracking data, understanding provenance metadata, empirical studies of how data is used, etc.

At the workshop, keynote talks will be given by Elisa Bertino (Purdue) and Paolo Missier (Newcastle UK). We welcome participation from researchers across different communities, including data management, provenance, privacy and security, HCI, and pervasive computing. The workshop will aim for extensive discussion and interaction; we will not be publishing traditional papers. We expect talks of many kinds including talks that summarise a body of work, suggest a vision, raise questions, define benchmarks, or discuss alternative approaches.
