                       Call for Papers & Participation

                        4th International Workshop on


                           May 27, 2002
                       Toronto, Ontario, Canada

                        in conjunction with the
      14th Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE'02)
                           May 27-31, 2002

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. DMDW started as a CAiSE worhshop in Heidelberg, 1999. Since then, the workshop has taken place on an annual basis with a big success, with special journal issues publishing best papers from past editions of DMDW. As in earlier DMDW workshops, we invite research papers covering all aspects of data warehouse design and management over its lifecycle. Equally welcome are papers from the industry reporting on data warehouse toolkits and experiences from data warehouse implementation projects. The workshop will continue to promote a culture of vivid discussions.

We cordially invite researchers to submit original research papers to the 4th DMDW Workshop, and practitioners of the DW application industry to submit experience papers. Here is a non-exclusive list of


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
Management of data quality and uncertainty Verification of design goals and information needs Online Analytical Processing (OLAP)
Conceptual and logical modeling of multidimensional data Multidimensional query languages
Query processing and optimization in data warehouses Data warehouse evolution
Data warehouse security
Data warehouses and the web
Online Analytical Mining (OLAM)
Temporal aspects

Experience Track

Motivation for installing a data warehouse Integration of a data warehouse into an organization's business processes Supporting federations of data warehouses Experience with data warehouse software and tools Detection of useful/necessary functionalities 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

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS Research papers of up to a 5000 words (which works out to a MAXIMUM of 10 double spaced 12 point font single column pages) and experience papers of up to 2500 words (MAXIMUM 5 pages of double spaced 12 point font single column pages) should be submitted in electronic form (Standard Postscript or PDF) via Email to


by the submission deadline (see below). NO OTHER FORMS OR FORMATS OF SUBMISSION ARE ACCEPTABLE. Authors are solely responsible for making sure their submissions print/view properly.

More information about the workshop is available at:

For further questions, please contact either the program chair or one of the organizing committee members (coordinates below).

The workshop proceedings will most likely be published by the University of Toronto Press. Proceedings of previous DMDW editions can be found at:

As in the past, we expect that selected papers from the workshop will be published, possibly in conjunction with selected papers from the DOLAP Workshop, in a special issue of a leading international journal.
