Invited Session on
Interdisciplinary Approaches in Data Science and Business Intelligence Practice (IADBIP 2018)

Organized within the framework of the
22th International Conference on on Knowledge-Based and Intelligent Information & Engineering Systems (KES 2018)

Belgrade, Serbia, 3 - 5 September, 2018



One of the main issues in many organization systems is how to transform large amounts of daily collected operational data into useful knowledge from the perspective of declared com¬pany goals and expected business values. The main concern of the invited session is a Business Intelligence (BI) and Data Science (DS) paradigms, as a set of theories, methodologies, processes, architectures, and technologies that transform raw data into meaningful and useful information, knowledge, and value. Various interdisciplinary oriented BI and DS approaches may provide organizations the ability to use their data to improve quality of business, increase financial efficiency and operational effectiveness, conduct innovative research and satisfy regulatory requirements. Applications of appropriate BI and DS implementation methodologies together with outcomes related to collaborative and interdisciplinary approaches are inevitable when applying BI approaches to large and complex organization systems. For many years, interdisciplinary approaches were used in analyzing big data gathered from not only business sectors, but also public, non-profit, and governmental sectors.

The main goal of the session is to attract researchers from all over the world who will present their contributions, interdisciplinary approaches or case studies in the area of BI and DS. The focus may be set to various aspects, such as: data warehousing, reporting, online analytical processing, data analytics, data mining, process mining, text mining, predictive and prescriptive analytics, as well as various aspects of big data analysis and time series analysis. We express an interest in gathering scientists and practitioners interested in applying BI and DS approaches in public and governmental sectors, such as healthcare, education, or security services. However, experts from all sectors are welcomed.

Submissions are expected from, but not limited to the following topics:

* Data Science and Business Intelligence – Theoretical and practical aspects
