Call for Papers
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 2008), builds on
this tradition of facilitating the cross-disciplinary exchange of ideas,
experience and potential research directions. 

DaWaK 2008 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)

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original, previously unpublished work.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 10 pages (including all text, figures, references and 
Authors who want to buy extra pages may submit a paper up to 12
pages with the indication that the authors will purchase extra pages once
the paper is accepted. Submissions which are not conform to the LNCS format
and/or which do exceed 10 pages (or up to 12 pages with the extra
purchase commitment) will be rejected without reviews. 

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

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 DaWaK2008 conference
will be invited to submit an extension for a special issue of International
Journal of Data Warehousing and Mining (IJDWM) and Journal of Computing 
and Engineering (JCSE). 

Authors are requested to send the abstract of their paper to be received by
March 28 2008, due date of the full paper electronic submission is April 4, 
via the following submission website:
