*** Scope and topics ***
MORE Business Intelligence workshop will bring together researchers in
conceptual modeling, ontology engineering, knowledge representation,
and reasoning with business analysts, developers, managers, and
consultants involved in the definition of requirements for,
development, use, and evolution of Business Intelligence (BI) systems.

The aim is to initiate discussions and studies in ontologies, modeling
languages, and reasoning methods relevant for the engineering of
requirements for, and the engineering and specification of BI systems.
These modeling and reasoning techniques should provide more precise
and rich information for the end-user, bridging the gap between
technical and user-centric tools for Business Intelligence.

The workshop is the first of its kind to provide a forum for both
research and practice in the conceptual modeling and reasoning needed
for the engineering of BI systems, and encourages interdisciplinary
discussions in all aspects of this field.

Topics of interest include:
* Concepts, relations, ontologies, models of decision information and
for decision support
* Modeling languages for decision support
* Modeling languages for business strategy and business analytics
* Data cleaning and quality
* Data integration
* Logical knowledge bases for business intelligence
* Automated reasoning for decision support
* Requirements engineering of business decision processes
* Requirements engineering of business analytics processes
* OLAP and classification
* Collaborative and user-centric modeling for decision support
* Models visualization
* Semantic modeling such as Triple Store

*** Paper submission ***
Workshop proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS
series. Authors must submit manuscripts using the Springer-Verlag LNCS
style for Lecture Notes in Computer Science. See
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for style files and

We welcome technical research papers, industrial experience reports,
and speculative/visionary papers. Submissions should be in LNCS and
pdf format. The maximum length is 10 pages. Accepted papers will be
published in the LNCS workshop proceedings.
