Call For Papers


ACM Twelfth International Workshop on Data Warehousing and OLAP

DOLAP 2009

(in conjunction with ACM CIKM 2009)

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 data warehouses, 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 2009 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
* Software Engineering techniques for DW and OLAP
* Security and privacy in 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
* Spatial OLAP, Temporal OLAP
* 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 (e.g., text) and semi-structured data (e.g., XML)
* Multimedia data warehouses
* Data warehousing & OLAP for mobile and wireless environments
* Biomedical data warehouses
* Spatial, temporal, and spatio-temporal data warehouses
* Trajectory data warehouses
* Frameworks for Business Process Management (BPM), Business Intelligence (BI), and Business Process Intelligence (BPI)
* Tools for data warehousing and OLAP
* Integration of OLAP and information retrieval/search engines
* Integration of data warehouses/OLAP and data mining
* Warehousing stream and sensor data: integration, aggregation and approximation
* Personalization
* OLAP and what-if analysis
* Software approaches 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 Full papers should be submitted in PDF format via EasyChair ( by July 5, 2009.

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 10. Camera-ready copies of accepted papers are due on August 14, 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 2009 will be considered for a special issue of Data & Knowledge Engineering - DKE (Elsevier).
