Call For Papers
International Conference on BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE SYSTEMS (miproBIS)
(in conjunction with 32st International Convention MIPRO)
May 25 - 29, 2008
Opatija, Adriatic Coast, Croatia
The term Business intelligence (BI) refers to applications and technologies used to gather, provide access to, and analyze data and information about company operations in order to help them to have a more comprehensive knowledge of the factors affecting their business. BI systems usually lean on data warehouses (DWs) to guarantee an easy and quick access to information. The widespread deployment of these systems is making users more and more demanding in terms of applications, types of analysis and performances; on the other hand ten years of research in the data warehousing field paved the way for new applications that goes beyond traditional OLAP analysis and concern real-time, spatiotemporal as well as distributed data. Furthermore, BI research is now dealing with the integration of BI with Corporate Performance Management (CPM), balanced scorecards, and Business Process Management (BPM).
Like the previous successful editions, miproBIS 2008 provides an international forum where both researchers and practitioners can share their findings and practical experiences in the field of BI. In particular, besides submissions in traditional DW and OLAP topics, we encourage papers concerning emerging research topics and applications in the DW, OLAP and BI area.
The SCOPE of the conference includes, but is not limited to:
- Data warehouse design and schema evolution
- Multidimensional modelling and queries
- Data warehousing consistency and quality
- Online Analytical Processing (OLAP)
- Tools for data warehousing and OLAP
