Data Warehousing and Knowledge Discovery has been widely accepted as a key technology for enterprises and organizations to improve their abilities in data analysis, decision support, and the automatic extraction of knowledge from data. With the exponentially growing amount of information to be included in the decision making process, the data to be considered becomes more and more complex in both structure and semantics. New developments such as cloud computing and Big Data add to the challenges with massive scaling, a new computing infrastructure, and new types of data. Consequently, the process of retrieval and knowledge discovery from this huge amount of heterogeneous complex data builds the litmus-test for the research in the area.

Submissions presenting current research work on both theoretical and practical aspects of Big Data, Data Warehousing and Knowledge Discovery are encouraged. DaWaK 2014 is organized into 4 tracks as follows:

Big Data and Cloud Intelligence Track:

Big Data Storage
