CALL for the Doctoral Consortium Papers

The BIR 2015 Doctoral Consortium provides doctoral students an opportunity to present and discuss their research on topics of BIR 2015 under the guidance of a panel of experienced researchers. We invite doctoral students share their work with fellow students and senior researchers in the field by submitting an article of 8 pages by July 1st 2015.

This year there will be a special theme for papers in the doctoral consortium - linked data. We are also inviting other submissions traditionally related to the BIR topics.

Linked data allows capturing both models and data and thereby serves as a bridge in standardization of metamodels and application of business intelligence. In the context of business informatics and the linked data theme we are looking specifically papers, which define or refine metamodels in linked data formats, provide open datasets as linked data and use the provided linked data.
