The large volumes of structured data currently available open up new opportunities for progress in answering many important scientific, societal, and business questions. However, finding relevant data is difficult. While search engines have addressed this problem for Web documents, there are many new challenges involved in supporting the discovery of structured data for specific tasks. To tackle these challenges, we propose the dataset search engine Auctus. In this paper, we describe Auctus and present open questions and future work related to dataset discovery.
