Subject: DMDW'01 - Call for papers / data warehousing workshop at CAiSE'01

                           CALL FOR PAPERS

                       3rd International Workshop on


                                   June 4, 2001
                             Interlaken, Switzerland

                            in conjunction with the
         13th Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering

Data Warehousing embraces technology and industrial practice to
systematically integrate data from multiple distributed data sources and to
use that data in annotated and aggregated form to support business
decision-making and enterprise management. Although many database techniques
have been revisited or newly developed in the context of data warehouses,
such as view maintenance and OLAP, little attention has been paid to the
design and management of data warehouses to appropriately serve their
purposes, i.e., to support the management of a given enterprise. This
workshop is intended as a forum to fill this gap. It is the third in a
series of successful workshops that started at CAiSE'99 in Heidelberg,
Germany, and continued at CAiSE'00 in Stockholm, Sweden. DMDW is a workshop
series devoted exclusively to Data Warehousing issues and attracts
participants from both the industry and the research community.

We cordially invite researchers to submit original research papers to the
3rd workshop, and experts of the DW application industry to submit
experience papers. Some possible focus areas are given below but submissions
covering other data warehousing-related topics, not on this list, are
welcomed as well.


* Design methods for data warehouses
* Data warehouse architectures
* Physical organization of data warehouses
* Materialized view selection for data warehousing
* Data extraction and cleaning for data warehousing
* Organization of meta-data management
* Data Warehouse quality
* Verification of design goals and information needs
* On-Line Analytical Processing
* Conceptual and logical modeling of multi-dimensional data
* Multidimensional query languages
* Query processing and optimization in data warehouses
* Data warehouse evolution
* Data warehouse security
* Data warehouses and the web


* Motivation for installing a data warehouse
* Integration of a data warehouse into an organization's business
* Supporting federations of data warehouses
* Experience with data warehouse software and tools
* Detection of useful or even necessary functionalities that are lacking
       from commercial products
* Problems and challenges in data warehouse usage (e.g. data loading, data
       cleaning, data inconsistency, data maintenance, data quality,
       performance issues)
* User acceptance of data warehouses
* Impact of OLAP and data mining on business decisions
* Success stories of data warehouse installations


Research papers up to a maximum of 5000 words and experience papers up to
2500 words should be submitted in electronic form (Standard Postscript, PDF,
doc, RTF) via Email to
