8th International Conference on Data Warehousing and Knowledge Discovery (DaWaK 2006)

Krakow, Poland, 4 - 8 September 2006

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 exponential 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. 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 2006), builds on this tradition of facilitating the cross-disciplinary exchange of ideas, experience and potential research directions. DaWak 2006 seeks to introduce innovative principles, methods, algorithms and solutions to challenging problems faced in the development of data warehousing, knowledge discovery and data mining applications. 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, mining natural science data (e.g. bioinformatics, geophysics)

    intrusion/fraud detection, finance, healthcare, marketing,
    telecommunications, etc

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are invited to submit research and application papers, not exceeding 5000 words, representing original, previously unpublished work.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. 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. Paper submissions in LNCS format ( would be highly
appreciated. The maximum number of pages for the final version will be 10 pages.

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 year, authors of best papers selected from DaWaK2006 conference will be invited to submit an extension for a special issue of an International Journal. Authors are requested to send the abstract of their paper to be received by April 1st 2006 (extended to April 10th),due date of the full paper electronic submission is April 10th 2006 (extended to April 30th).
