Workshop Theme and Topics of Interest

The first workshop on "Real-Time Business Intelligence" (RTBI'09),
co-located with APWEB/WAIM 2009 conference, focuses on the challenges
associated with the modeling, architectural designs, technologies, and
applications for real-time BI.

As one of the most critical tools in obtaining competitive advantage
(and thus surviving) in the business world, real-time business
intelligence is one of the key driving forces in IT investments.
Reliable and real-time collection of business intelligence requires
co-operation of the many loosely-coupled components of the IT
infrastructure of an enterprise. Consequently, as these
infrastructures become more complex and as the data sizes get closer
to the petabyte levels, designing and deploying real-time business
intelligence solutions is becoming a real challenge. In this workshop,
we would like to explore alternative solutions to the imminent
"scalability" problem in real-time business intelligence.

The workshop focuses on modeling, architectures, technologies,
applications for real time business intelligence in the following

+ Cloud and grid computing
+ BI over massive data volume (i.e. map reduce type of
parallel computing)
+ BI over streaming data
+ Real-time data capture, parsing, extraction,
cleaning, and replication.
+ Performance, reliability, and scalability
+ Real-time decision support systems
+ Tuning and management of the real-time data warehouse
+ Data warehouse evolution
+ Data mining and data analysis in real-time
+ Real-time Business Activity Monitoring (BAM)
+ Real-time OLAP
+ Real-time operational data stores
+ RFID and sensor network-based BI applications
+ Visualization
+ Benchmarking
+ Privacy issues
+ Uncertainty issues

We also solicit papers describing real world case studies on applying
BI tools to real-life problems and lessons learned from large
practical applications of real-time BI.


Informal proceedings will be distributed at the workshop and all
papers accepted by APWeb-WAIM'09 workshops will be published in a
combined volume of Lecturer Notes in Computer Science series published
by Springer as post-workshop formal proceedings.

Submission Guidelines and Important Dates

The papers must be in English and should be formatted according to the
Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science guidelines. Author's
instructions and style files can be downloaded at The maximum length of
papers is 12 pages. All papers must be submitted by email to
in PDF format.
