Abstract. Increasingly, many data sources appear as online databases, hidden
behind query forms, thus forming what is referred to as the deep web. It is de-
sirable to have systems that can provide a high-level and simple interface for
users to query such data sources, and can automate data retrieval from the deep
web. However, such systems need to address the following challenges. First, in
most cases, no single database can provide all desired data, and therefore, mul-
tiple different databases need to be queried for a given user query. Second, due
to the dependencies present between the deep-web databases, certain databases
