### Call for papers

The complexity of Big Data applications in conjunction with the lack of standards for representing their
components, computations, and processes, have made the design of data-intensive applications a failure
prone and resource-intensive activity. One of the reasons behind it can be identified in a lack of sound
modeling practices. Indeed, multiple components and procedures must be coordinated to ensure a high level
of data quality and accessibility for the application layers, e.g. data analytics and reporting. We believe that a
major challenges of Big Data research requires - even more than developing new analytics - devising
innovative data management techniques capable to deliver functional and non-functional properties like among
others: data quality, data integration, metadata discovery, reconciliation and augmentation, model compliance,
or regulatory compliance.
Data Semantics research can address such challenges in future research according to the FAIR principles, for
implementing design procedures that generate Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable data.
Methods, principles, and perspectives developed by the Data Semantics community can significantly
contribute to this goal. Solutions for integrating and querying schema-less data, for example, have received
much attention. Standards for metadata management have been proposed to improve data integration among
silos and to make data more discoverable and accessible through heterogeneous infrastructures. A further
level of application of Data Semantics principles into Big Data technologies involves Representing Processes,
i.e. representing the entire pipeline of technologies connected to achieve a specific solution and make this
representation shareable and verifiable to support a mature implementation of the Big Data production cycle.
This special issue of the Journal on Data Semantics aims at sharing research and practical achievements in
the field of Big Data integration, storage, and processing. Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:

• Big Data Management
