Call For Papers

ACM Eleventh International Workshop on Data Warehousing and OLAP

* DOLAP 2008*

(in conjunction with ACM CIKM 2008)

Sponsored by ACM SIGMIS and SIGWEB



Data Warehouse (DW) and Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) technologies
are the core of current Decision Support Systems. Traditionally, a data
warehouse has been a historical (and relatively static) repository of
data collected from a wide variety of heterogeneous data sources by
means of Extraction-Transformation-Loading (ETL) processes. The
widespread deployment of both DWs and OLAP technologies is due to the
intuitive representation of data provided to data analysts or managers
in support of management decisions. Recently, the trend is that DWs
become more and more dynamic, with near-realtime updates, and include
more complex types of data.

Research in data warehousing and OLAP has produced important
technologies for the design, management and use of information systems
for decision support. Much of the interest and success in this area can
be attributed to the need for software and tools to improve data
management and analysis given the large amounts of information that are
being accumulated in corporate as well as scientific databases.
Nevertheless, the high maturity of these technologies as well as new
data needs or applications not only demand more capacity or storing
necessities, but also new methods, models, techniques or architectures
to satisfy these new needs. Some of the hot topics in data warehouse
research include distributed data warehouses, web warehouses, data
streams, realtime DWs, GIS/location-based services, biomedical data,
integration of semi-structured and unstructured data, security/privacy
and quality management.

Like the previous successful DOLAP workshops, the DOLAP 2008 workshop
aims to synergistically connect the research community and industry
practitioners. It provides an international forum where both researchers
and practitioners can share their findings in theoretical foundations,
current methodologies, and practical experiences. DOLAP will focus on
new research directions and emerging applications in DW & OLAP.

* Topics of Interest *

The workshop solicits two types of papers: regular and industry papers.
Regular research papers and industry papers are separately reviewed and
there will be separate sessions in a distinct industry track. In
addition, there will be a session with invited industry papers
presenting research challenges. A panel will discuss future research on
data warehouses and OLAP technologies. Suggested regular research topics
include, but are not limited to:

* Data warehousing foundations and architectures
* Data warehouse design
* Maintenance and evolution of data warehouses
* Source integration
* Data extraction, cleaning and loading
* Data warehouse consistency and quality
* Active/Real-Time data warehouses
* Lineage Tracing
* Multidimensional modeling and queries: languages, optimization, processing
* Visualization
* Metadata management
* View materialization
* Physical organization of data warehouses
* Performance optimization and tuning
* Web warehousing
* Data warehousing and the semantic web
* Data warehousing with unstructured data and semi-structured data (e.g., XML)
* Multimedia data warehouses
* Biomedical data warehouses
* Data warehousing & OLAP in mobile and wireless environments
* Frameworks for Business Process Management (BPM), Business
Intelligence (BI), and Business Process Intelligence (BPI)
* Tools for data warehousing and OLAP
* Integration of data warehouses/OLAP and data mining
* Integration of OLAP and Information Retrieval/search engines
* Warehousing Stream and Sensor data: integration, aggregation and approximation
* Security and privacy in data warehouses
* Personalization
* OLAP and what-if analysis
* Software Engineering techniques for DW&OLAP
* Knowledge-based approaches and AI techniques for DW&OLAP

* Industry papers shall address:*

* Experience and lessons in data warehousing projects and applications
* Administration tools
* Benchmarks
* Tools for data warehousing and OLAP
* Data warehousing and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)
* Data warehousing and Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
* Solutions for Business Process Management (BPM) and Business Intelligence (BI)

* Submission of Papers*

Manuscripts should be formatted using the ACM camera-ready templates
(both for MS word and Latex) available at There are two styles
on the website. Both the /Strict Adherence to SIGS/ and the / Tighter
Alternate/ style are allowed. Papers cannot exceed 8 pages in length. A
website with camera-ready instructions will be available at the
conference web site _www.cikm2008.org_. Full papers should be submitted
in PDF format via EasyChair
( by *July 4, 2008*.

Papers will be reviewed by the program committee for their technical
merit, originality, significance, readability, and relevance to the
workshop. *Emphasis will be given to papers extending data warehousing
to novel areas and applications*. Authors will receive notification of
acceptance/rejection by *August 8*. Camera-ready copies of accepted
papers are due on * August 15*, and will be published in the workshop
proceedings by ACM Press. The maximum length of final papers will be 8
pages in double column. *The best papers of DOLAP 2008 will be
considered for a special issue of Data & Knowledge Engineering - DKE

* Important Dates:*

Submission deadline for full papers : Friday, July 4, 2008 at 23:59:59 GMT
Notification of acceptance : Friday, August 8, 2008
