Winter Conference on Business Intelligence http://gkmc.utah.edu/winter/ provides a unique forum for exchanging creative research ideas/findings/perspectives as well as building strong synergy among leading information systems researchers and business executives. Through papers, panels, and discussions we will highlight the data-centric challenges and opportunities for creating business strategies. The conference will provide abundant opportunities for feedback and dialogue among participants --- either at the conference venue or while racing down the slopes of scenic Wasatch mountains.
Conference topics include but are not limited to the following:
We welcome papers that use a variety of methodologies including data mining, field and lab experiments, empirical and econometric techniques, game-theoretic and analytic modeling. The conference does not publish proceedings but provides researchers valuable opportunities to receive detailed feedback and constructive comments for paper revisions and submissions to prestigious research outlets. To increase the number of presentations on the program, we may include a poster session on Thursday evening. Participants will have authorized access to soft copies of papers, posters and presentation slides submitted.
Interested presenters need to submit paper summaries in the PDF format via Easy Chair login in for WCBI 2014 - https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=2014wcbi.
A paper summary (up to 1,000 words apart from abstract) should include:
(1) research question(s)
(3) main findings/expected contributions, and
(4) current status of manuscript.
We invite both preliminary and mature works for presentation at the conference. To complete a submission, the Easy Chair submission system also will require a short separate abstract, three keywords, author info and paper title.
