The Program Committee of DataValue 2018 invites submissions in the broad 
areas of *Data Value* and *Data Governance*.

Data is increasingly being utilised and exploited by enterprises as a 
means to gain competitive advantage. Data provides the capabilities such 
as delivering services, making informed decisions,  and improve 
financial performance.

Yet, enterprises’ attention is usually focused on accumulating data as 
opposed to the value of the information or knowledge contained within 
this data. Moreover, even though information consumes immense resources 
and money in terms of data capture, storage, processing, and 
maintenance, ironically it typically receives no recognition on the 
financial balance sheet.

Due to it’s role and characteristics in enterprises and/or businesses, 
data can be considered as an asset. Additionally, information has a cost 
and a value, like most business assets, and theoretically it can be 
valued in the same way an asset is. Despite this, information has as yet 
resisted quantitative measurement.

Based on existing literature, we particularly identify the following 
open challenges:

     • How can we represent and model data value?
     • Can data value be quantified, and to what extent?
     • Can data value be predicted?
     • How does data governance affect data exploitation?

Areas of interest include, but are not restricted to:

  * Data Exploitation
  * Data Value Chains/Networks
  * Data Value Models
  * Standards
  * Metrics
  * Use Cases
  * Best Practices
  * Data Value Quantification
  * Impacts
  * Data Governance Platforms

We envision three types of submissions in order to cover the entire 
spectrum from mature research papers to novel ideas/datasets and 
industry technical talks:

  * Research Papers (max 10 pages), presenting novel scientific research
    addressing the topics of the workshop;
  * Position Papers, Demo papers and System and Dataset descriptions
    (max 5 pages), encouraging papers describing significant work in
    progress, late breaking results or ideas of the domain, as well as
    functional systems or datasets relevant to the community;
  * Industry and Use Case Presentations (max 5 pages), in which industry
    experts can present and discuss practical solutions, use case
    prototypes, best practices, etc., in any stage of implementation.

*Workshop Co-Chairs:*

Dr. Judie Attard (Trinity College Dublin)
Dr. Rob Brennan (Trinity College Dublin)
Prof. Markus Helfert (Dublin City University)
Dr. Pieter De Leenheer (Collibra, USA)
