Abstract: We address the challenging and open problem of bringing together two crucial activities in data integration and data quality, i.e., transforming data using schema mappings, and fixing conflicts and inconsistencies using data repairing. This problem is made complex by several factors. First, schema mappings and data repairing have traditionally been considered as separate activities, and research has progressed in a largely independent way in the two fields. Second, the elegant formalizations and the algorithms that have been proposed for both tasks have had mixed fortune in scaling to large databases. In the thesis, we introduce a very general notion of a mapping and cleaning scenario that incorporates a wide variety of features, like, for example, user interventions. We develop a new semantics for these scenarios that represents a conservative extension of previous semantics for schema mappings and data repairing. Based on the semantics, we introduce a chase-based algorithm to compute solutions. Appropriate care is devoted to developing a scalable implementation of the chase algorithm. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first general and scalable proposal in this direction.
