MORE Business Intelligence Workshops 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 systems.
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 Business Intelligence systems, and encourages interdisciplinary discussions in all aspects of this field.

Purpose and scope
Business intelligence (BI) systems gather, store, and process data to turn it into information that is meaningful and relevant for decision-making in businesses and organizations. The very strong and continuously growing interest in industry in the engineering of BI systems is a response to the inefficiencies arising from the difficulties of finding in meaningful form the data that can relevantly inform decision-making.
Successful engineering, use, and evolution of BI systems require a deep understanding of the requirements of decision-making processes in organizations, of the kinds of information used and produced in these processes, of the ways in which information can be obtained through acquisition and reasoning on data, of the transformations and analyses of that information, of how the necessary data can be acquired, stored, cleaned, how its quality can be improved, and of how heterogeneous data can be used together. The identification and analysis of concepts and relations relevant for the various steps in the engineering of BI systems, the conceptual modeling of requirements for BI systems, of the data used and produced by them, of the transformations and analyses of data, are only some of the topics to which researchers and practitioners of conceptual modeling can contribute, in the aim of constructing theoretically sound and practically applicable models and reasoning facilities to support the engineering of BI systems.
MORE Business Intelligence intends to 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 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 will provide more precise and rich information for the end-user, bridging the gap between technical and user-centric tools for Business Intelligence.
Workshop proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series.
