In today's competitive and highly dynamic environment, analyzing data to understand how the business is performing and to predict outcomes and trends has become critical. The traditional approach to reporting is no longer adequate. Instead users now demand easy-to-use intelligent platforms and applications capable of analyzing real-time data to provide insight and actionable information at the right time. The end goal is to support better and timelier decision making, enabled by the availability of up-to-date, high quality information.

Although there has been progress in this direction and many companies are introducing products towards meeting this goal, there is still a long way to go. In particular, the whole lifecycle of business intelligence requires innovative techniques and methodologies capable of dealing with the requirements imposed by these new generation of BI applications. From the capture of real-time business data to the transformation and delivery of actionable information, all the stages of the Business Intelligence (BI) cycle call for new algorithms and paradigms to support value-added functionalities. These functionalities include dynamic integration of real-time data feeds from operational sources, optimization and evolution of ETL transformations and analytical models, and dynamic generation of adaptive real-time dashboards, just to name a few.

The series of BIRTE workshops, starting in 2006, have always been held in conjunction with VLDB. The series aims to provide a forum to discuss topics related to this emerging field and set research directions towards making business intelligence more real-time. Following the success of previous BIRTE editions (2006, 2008-2012) submissions for research, industrial and position papers on relevant topics are encouraged.


Areas of particular interest for the workshop include (but are not limited to) the following,

- Analytics as a service
- Analytics for Linked Data/semantic web
- Big Data systems and applications for high velocity data
- Case studies and experience (lessons, pitfalls, guidelines) from real-time BI practice
- Challenges from advanced domains, e.g., energy data or sensor data
- Cloud intelligence
- Collaborative real-time BI
- Crowdsourcing and crowd intelligence
- Data capture in real-time
- Data mining, analytics, and OLAP for real-time decision support
- Data quality and cleansing
- Event-driven analytics
- Integration of prediction models with real-time and historical data
- Integration of open and private data
- Linking business strategies with real-time BI
- Novel architectures for real-time BI
- Optimization, performance and scalability
- Privacy and security in real-time BI
- Real-time ETL, ELT, and beyond
- Streaming data
- Tuning and management of the real-time data warehouse
- Visualizing real-time data and information

Papers describing real-time BI systems, platforms, and applications are especially welcome and may be allocated extra time for demoing (if appropriate).
For the first time, this year we also accept demo paper submissions.


Papers should follow the LNCS format (see for details). The length of a paper should not exceed 16 pages for all categories except (strictly) demo papers whose limit is 4 pages. Papers in PDF should be submitted electronically to the review web site


As in previous years, post-proceedings will be published as a LNBIP volume by Springer-Verlag.
