Advanced Computational Gateway to Business Information Management

The  pervasive  vision of  this year  conference  is  laid for opening
gateway to  knowledge discovery  for  effective  decision  making  and
managing  business  processes  by  developing  information  management
frameworks  closely  aligned  with enterprise strategy and objectives.
We encourage  comprehensive  look at the concept of data governance as
it  joins  cross-functional  teams  for  business  knowledge alignment
affecting the company or organization as a whole.

The aim of the conference is to identify trends and problems fostering
new  development of business  information systems by applying advanced
computational  approaches and  business  intelligence.  We expect that
ideas  and  high quality publications presented by the researchers can
shape  future  research  directions  both  in  theoretical and applied
domains of managing business knowledge.

BIS 2012  continues  the  tradition  of collaboration  among  multiple
scientific  areas,  therefore  we  are  looking  forward  for original
