Third International Workshop "Dependability Aspects on Data WArehousing
and Mining applications" DAWAM 2008. 

http://www.ares-conference.eu/conf/ --> Workshops -->DAWAM 

in conjunction with The Third International Conference on
Availability, Reliability and Security - ARES 2008
March 4th – 7th, 2008
Polytechnic University of Catalonia, Barcelona, Spain 

Nowadays, the rapid growth of information technologies has brought
tremendous opportunities for data sharing, integration, and analysis
across multiple distributed, heterogeneous data sources. In the past
decade, data warehousing and mining are the well-known technologies
used for data analysis and knowledge discovery in vast domain of

Data mining technology has emerged as a means of identifying
patterns and trends from large quantities of data. Data mining has
used a data warehousing model of gathering all data into a central
site, then running an algorithm against that data. 

A growing attention has been paid to the study, development and
application of data warehousing and mining. Nevertheless,
dependability aspects in these applications such as availability,
reliability, integrity, privacy, and security issues are still being
investigated. For example, in data warehousing applications, privacy
considerations may prevent the approach of collecting data into the
centralized warehouse because each data source has different privacy
policy. Furthermore, the complexity of security increases as
different sources of information are combined. Reliable, consistent
and trustworthy of information are also significant requirements in
data warehousing applications. Data mining has been shown to be
beneficial in confronting various types of attacks to computer
systems such as fraud detection, intrusion prevention. In some
applications, e.g. clinic information system, government management,
business competitive information, it is required to apply the mining
algorithms without observing the confidential data values thus
demands the privacy preservation. There are also many challenging
issues that need further investigation in the context of data mining
from both privacy and security perspectives such as mining of
imbalanced data, bioinformatics data, streaming data, ubiquitous
computing data, grid computing data etc. 

The goals of this workshop are to bring together users, engineers and
researchers (from industry and academy) alike to present their recent
work, discuss and identify problems, synergize different views of
techniques and policies, and brainstorm future research directions on
various dependability aspects of data warehousing and data mining
applications. We strongly encourage researchers and practitioners
with interest in the areas of reliability, availability, privacy and
security, databases, data warehousing, data mining, and statistics
to submit their experience, and/or research results. 

Topics related to any of dependability aspects in data warehousing
and mining, theory, systems and applications are of interest. These
include, but are not limited to the following areas: 

· Dependability and fault tolerance
· High Availability and Disaster Recovery
· Survivability of evaluative systems
· Reliability and Robustness Issues
· Accuracy and reliability of responses
· Reliable and Failure Tolerant Business Process Integration
· Reliable Event Management and Data Stream Processing
· Failure Tolerant and trustworthy Sensor Networks
· Highly available data warehouses for business processes integration
· Handling different or incompatible formats, and erroneous data
· Privacy and security policies and social impact of data mining
· Privacy preserving data integration
· Access control techniques and secure data models
· Encryption & Authentication
· Pseudonymization and Encryption
· Anonymization and pseudonymization
· Trust management, and security
· Security in Aggregation and Generalization
· User Profile Based Security
· Secure multi-party computation
· Secondary use of personal data, clinic data, credit record
· Fraud and misuse detection
· Intrusion detection and tolerance
· Data mining applications for terrorist detection
· Private queries by a (semi-trusted) third party
· Query authentication, logging, auditing, access control and
authorization policies 

The program of the workshop will be a combination of invited talks,
paper/poster presentations and discussions. 

Important Dates
Submission Deadline: November, 16th 2007
Author Notification: December, 17th 2007
Author Registration: December, 31st 2007
Proceedings Version: January, 2nd 2007
Conference/Workshop: March 10-13th, 2008 

Submission Guidelines
Authors are invited to submit research and application papers in IEEE
Computer Society Proceedings Manuscripts style (two columns, single-spaced,
including figures and references, using 10 fonts, and number each page).
You can confirm the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Author Guidelines
at the following web page: 


Submission are classified into 2 categories (1) full paper (8
pages) and (2) short paper (5 pages) representing original, previously
unpublished work. 

Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, 
technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. 

Contact author must provide the following information: paper title,
authors' names, affiliations, postal address, phone, fax, and e-mail
address of the author(s), about 200-250 word abstract, and about five
keywords and register at our ARES website: 
and select DAWAM workshop submission. 

You can also prepare your paper in PDF file and send it to the workshop
co-chair: Prof. Bhavani Thuraisingham, The University of Texas at Dallas, 
(bhavani.thuraisingham at utdallas.edu) or Dr. Nguyen Manh Tho, Institute of
Software Technology, Vienna University of Technology, Austria ( 
tho at ifs.tuwien.ac.at) 

Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at
least one of the authors will register and present the paper in the
conference. Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing
and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the
notification of acceptance. 

All accepted papers (full and short papers) will be published as ISBN
proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society. Based on quality and
referee reviews, some papers not suitable for acceptance as full
paper will be accepted for presentation at DAWAM 2008 as short paper or
Poster presentation category and will be also included in the IEEE 

Like in DAWAM 2007, A selected number of DAWAM 2008 best papers will be 
to be published as special  issues in appropriate journals such as 
Journal of Business Intelligence and Data Mining (IJBIDM), Journal of 
and trusted computing (JoATC).
