Call for Papers: IEEE Big Data 2014 Workshop on Enterprise Big Data Semantics and Analytics Modeling (EBDSAM 2014),

Workshop on Enterprise Big Data Semantics and Analytics Modeling (EBDSAM
Co-located with the IEEE BigData 2014 conference in Oct 27-30, Washington

========== CALL FOR PAPERS ==============


While big data has been a topic of research and industry activity, much of
it has been focused on unstructured data such as web logs, web crawl data,
and social media data. One area which has received less attention but
offers significant opportunities is that of “enterprise big data”. As
enterprises drive towards leveraging analytics to create new value, they
are faced with one of the most daunting challenges post the enterprise data
warehousing era, “How can we link data from 100’s of business processes,
tens of businesses, and combine relevant enterprise data with external data
to enable novel analytical insights?” Consequently, Enterprise Big Data
Semantics, Analytics and Modeling (EBDSAM) is an emerging area of research.
It involves developing a new paradigm and technologies for handling of
enterprise data which also face volume, variety, velocity, and veracity to
create value through contextual process and analytics to create novel
insights and enable improved decisions.
This workshop will bring together academic researchers, technology company
researchers, and industry practitioners from multiple industries, including
Retail, Banking, Travel and Transportation, Government, etc. The goal of
the workshop will be to share key challenges in EBDSAM, novel approaches to
solutions, key business challenges that can be addressed by EBDSAM.
Participants are encouraged to start with specific business scenarios and
demonstrate research prototypes they have created in the EBDSAM area.
