Ethics-related aspects are becoming prominent in data management, thus the current processes for searching, querying, or analyzing data should be designed is such a way as to take into account the social problems their outcomes could bring about. In this paper we provide reections on the unavoidable ethical facets entailed by all the steps of the information life-cycle, including source selection, knowledge extraction, data integration and data analysis. Such reections motivated us to organize the First International Workshop on Processing Information Ethically (PIE).
