Second International Workshop on Business IntelligencE and the WEB (BEWEB 2011)

In conjuntion with EDBT/ICDT 2011 Joint Conference
Uppsala, Sweden, March 25, 2011

Conference website:


Over the last decade we have been witnessing an increasing use of Business Intelligence (BI) solutions, which allow business people to query, understand, and analyze their business data in order to make better decisions. Traditionally, BI applications allowed business people to acquire useful knowledge from the data of their organization by means of a variety of technologies, such as data warehousing, data mining, business performance management, OLAP, periodical business reports, and the like.
Yet, in the very recent years, a new trend emerged: BI applications no longer limit their analysis to the data inside one company. Increasingly, they also source their data from the outside, i.e., from the Web, and complement company-internal data with value-adding information from the Web (e.g., retail prices of products sold by competitors), in order to provide richer insights into the dynamics of toda's business.
In parallel to the move of data from the Web into BI applications, we are now assisting to the move of BI applications from company-internal information systems to the Web: BI as a service (e.g., hosted BI platforms for small- and medium-size companies) is the target of huge investments and the focus of large research efforts by industry. The idea is that of outsourcing the processing and analysis of large bodies of data and consuming BI from the cloud.

The Second International Workshop on Business intelligenCE and the WEB (BEWEB) intends to be a forum for exchanging ideas on (i) how to leverage the huge amount of data that is available on the Web in BI applications, (ii) how to apply Web engineering methods and techniques to the design of BI applications, and (iii) how to use BI knowledge in the design of Web applications.

Topics of interest

Papers focused on new domains and new experiences with the connection between BI and the Web are highly encouraged. The workshop will be a forum for researchers, designers, and users who are related to the combination of these main topics.

The scope of the workshop includes but is not limited to:

- Web warehousing
- Extraction, transformation, and load of Web data
- Web integration
- Web data quality
- Semantic Web technologies
- Web mining
- Web intelligence
- The role of Web 2.0/3.0 in BI
- BI with unstructured data (e.g., text) and semi-structured data (e.g., XML)
- BI for designing adaptive websites
- Web engineering techniques for BI applications (Web mashups, RIA, etc.)
- Real time BI
- Business performance management
- Usability and accessibility for BI applications
- Security issues in BI
- BI as a service
- Cloud intelligence: cloud computing & business intelligence

Submission Guidelines

Paper submission will be electronic via the EasyChair system at The length of submitted papers should not exceed 8 pages in ACM double-column format (see guidelines at Papers not conforming to these requirements may be rejected without further consideration.

The publication of BEWEB workshop papers will be handled together with publications of the main conference. A special issue in a JCR journal for the publication of extended versions of the best contributions to the workshop is under negotiation.

Paper submission: January 10th, 2011
Notification to authors: February 7th, 2011
