2006 Proceedings of the 2006 ACM SIGMOD international conference on Management of data - SIGMOD '06  
The lack of standard tools for processing ad hoc data forces analysts to roll their own tools, leading to scenarios such as the following.  ...  However, with the appropriate tool support, many aspects of this process can be greatly simplified. The PADS system [5] allows analysts to describe ad hoc data sources declaratively.  ...
