1st International Workshop on Business Intelligence over Big Data (BIoBD)

September 8 2019 Bled, Slovenia, 8 September, 2019 collocated with ADBIS 2019


Overview of the workshop

Business Intelligence and Analytics (BI&A) and the related field of big data analytics have become important area of study for both practitioners and researchers.

This reflects the extent and importance of data-related issues. Protecting this data and extracting value from it are also challenges of great importance in the last years and for many years to come.

The BIoBD workshop aims to gather researchers and practitioners around topics interested in current issues related to BI&A and big data as well as issues related to the protection and semantics of data. Original, unpublished research papers are welcomed in the BIoBD workshop.


Authors are invited to submit their work under the form of either a long paper exposing novel research works with preliminary results, or a short vision paper outlining research issues for future work. Rejected papers from ADBIS that match the workshop topics could be resubmitted to BIoBD and will undergo the same review process as the other submissions. Each submission will be reviewed by 3 members of the program committee. The best papers presented at BIoBD will be invited for publication in an international journal.
