As datasets grow in schema-size and heterogeneity, the development of infrastructures which can support users querying and exploring the data, without the need to fully understand the conceptual model behind it, becomes a fundamental functionality for contemporary data management. The first edition of the Schema-agnostic Queries Semantic Web Challenge (SAQ-2015) aims at creating a test collection to evaluate schema-agnostic/schema-free query mechanisms, i.e. mechanisms which are able to semantically match user queries expressed in their own vocabulary to dataset elements, allowing users to be partially or fully abstracted from the representation of the data.
