data is the fact that data may often
be “missing”, partially specified, or conflicting.

an assertion-based data model that captures
both value-based and structure-based “nulls”
in data. We also introduce the QUEST system,
which leverages the proposed model for
Query-driven Exploration of Semistructured
data with conflicT s and partial knowledge.
Our approach to integration lies in enabling
researchers to observe and resolve conflicts in
the data by considering the context provided
