The objective of the Fifth International Conference on Data Warehousing and
Knowledge Discovery (DaWaK 2003) is to bring together researchers, developers and
practitioners to discuss research issues and experience in developing and deploying
data warehousing and knowledge discovery systems, applications, and solutions.
This year the conference will also focus on two emerging areas, namely, Streaming Data

-Data warehouse security and reliability
-Design and maintenance of metadata repository
-Distributed data warehousing
-Multidimensional databases
-View maintenance/adaptation
-Multidimensional query languages
-Query optimization
-Parallel processing
-ROLAP/MOLAP systems
-Transaction processing in data warehouses
-Virtual data warehousing

Knowledge Discovery:
-Association rules and temporal association rules
-Data and knowledge representation
-Data mining agents
-Data mining support for the design of a data warehouse
-Distributed and parallel data mining/knowledge discovery
-Evaluating, consolidating, and explaining discovered knowledge
-Incremental knowledge discovery
-Integration of data warehousing and OLAP and data mining
-Interactive data exploration and discovery
-Languages and interfaces for data mining
-Mining unstructured and structured texts

Computing From Streaming and Biological Data:
-Types of Computation
-Pattern Discover
-Mining data streams
-summarization of streaming data

Paper Submission Details:

Authors are invited to submit research and application papers, not exceeding 5000 words,
representing original, previously unpublished work. Papers that substantially exceed this
limit will be rejected without review. However, it is possible to include additional,
clarifying material in an appendix to the paper. Papers which have been submitted in
identical form to another scientific event will also be rejected without review.
Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance,
technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. All papers will be refereed by three
members of the program committee.

All accepted papers will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by
Springer-Verlag. Paper submissions in LNCS format
(http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) would be highly appreciated.
The maximum number of pages for the final version will be 10 pages.

Authors are requested to submit the abstract of their paper on-line (www.dexa.org)
to be received by March 3, 2003. You should submit the file of your paper on-line
(www.dexa.org) to be received by March 10, 2003. Alternatively, submit 5 hard copies of
your paper to be received by March 10, 2003 to the following address: DAWAK 2003,
c/o FAW Secretary, University of Linz, A-4040 Linz, Austria.
