Data Warehousing and Knowledge Discovery has been widely accepted as a key technology for enterprises and organisations 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 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.

During the past years, the International Conference on Data Warehousing and Knowledge Discovery (DaWaK) has become one of the most important international scientific events to bring together researchers, developers and practitioners to discuss latest research issues and experiences in developing and deploying data warehousing and knowledge discovery systems, applications, and solutions. This year’s conference (DaWaK 2010), builds on this tradition of facilitating the cross-disciplinary exchange of ideas, experience and potential research directions. DaWaK 2010 seeks to introduce innovative principles, methods, algorithms and solutions to challenging problems faced in the development of data warehousing, knowledge discovery, data mining applications, and the emerging area of "cloud intelligence". Submissions presenting current research work on both theoretical and practical aspects of data warehousing and knowledge discovery are encouraged. Particularly, we strongly welcome submissions dealing with emerging real world applications such as real-time data warehousing, analysis of spatial and spatiotemporal data, OLAP mining, mobile OLAP, and mining science data (e.g. bioinformatics, geophysics).

Major Tracks

As a new development in 2010, DaWaK is organized into 4 tracks, each with a distinct focus and headed by a separate track chair:
The four tracks, and their main topics are as follows:

Cloud Intelligence Track: Track Chair Torben Bach Pedersen

  • Scalability and parallelization for cloud intelligence: map-reduce and beyond
  • Analytics for the cloud infrastructure
  • Analytics for unstructured, semi-structured, and structured data
  • Semantic web intelligence
  • Analytics for temporal, spatial, spatio-temporal, and mobile data
  • Analytics for data streams and sensor data
  • Analytics for multimedia data
  • Analytics for social networks
  • Real-time/right-time and event-based analytics
  • Privacy and security in cloud intelligence
  • Reliability and fault tolerance in cloud intelligence

Data Warehousing Track: Track Chair Alfredo Cuzzocrea

  • Analytical front-end tools for DW and OLAP

  • Data and knowledge representation
  • Knowledge discovery framework and process, including pre- and post-processing
  • Integration of data warehousing, OLAP and data mining
  • Integrating constraints and knowledge in the KDD process
  • Exploring data analysis, inference of causes, prediction
  • Evaluating, consolidating, and explaining discovered knowledge
  • Statistical techniques for generation a robust, consistent data model
  • Interactive data exploration/visualization and discovery
  • Languages and interfaces for data mining
  • Mining Trends, Opportunities and Risks
  • Mining from low-quality information sources

Industry and Applications Track: Track Chair Mukesh Mohania

  • Data warehousing tools
  • OLAP and analytics tools
  • Data mining tools
  • Industry experiences
  • Data warehousing applications: corporate, scientific, government, healthcare, bioinformatics, etc.
  • Data mining applications: bioinformatics, E-commerce, Web, intrusion/fraud detection, finance, healthcare, marketing, telecommunications, etc
  • Data mining support for designing information systems
  • Business Process Intelligence (BPI)

Paper Submission Details

Authors are invited to submit research and application papers representing original, previously unpublished work. Papers should be submitted in PDF or Word format. Submissions must conform to Springer's LNCS format and should not exceed 12 pages (including all text, figures, references and appendices). Authors who want to buy extra pages may submit a paper up to 15 pages with the indication that the authors will purchase extra pages once the paper is accepted. Submissions which do not conform to the LNCS format and/or which do exceed 12 pages (or up to 15 pages with the extra page purchase commitment) will be rejected without reviews.

Submission Online at: DaWaK 2010 Submission site

Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. All accepted papers will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by Springer-Verlag.

Duplicate submissions are not allowed. A submission is considered to be a duplicate submission if it is submitted to other conferences/workshops/journals or it has been already accepted to be published in other conferences/workshops/journals. Duplicate submissions thus will be automatically rejected without reviews.

As the last years, authors of best papers selected from DaWaK 2010 conference will be invited to submit an extension for a special issue of a journal. Authors are requested to send the abstract of their paper to be received by April 3, 2010 (extended deadline) and the due date of the full paper electronic submission is April 10, 2010 (extended deadline).

For further inquiries, please contact DaWaK 2010 PC Co-Chairpersons: Dr. Mukesh Mohania (, Prof. Torben Bach Pedersen (, or Prof. A Min Tjoa (
