[ apologies for potential cross-postings ]


1st International Workshop on
Data-driven Real-time systems for the Sensing enterprise
(DIVERS 2015)

Part of the OnTheMove Federated Conferences
October 28-29, 2015, Rhodes, Greece

Proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag


Abstract Submission Deadline: July 17, 2015
Full Paper Submission Deadline: July 20, 2015

PROASENSE The Proactive Sensing Enterprise
SPEEDD Scalable Proactive Event-Driven Decision-making


The Sensing Enterprise is described as an enterprise anticipating
future decisions by using multi-dimensional information captured
through physical and virtual objects and providing added value
information to enhance its global context awareness [1, 2].
That is to say, the enterprise will not only capture selective
information from the environment (physical, virtual and social),
but it will also integrate decentralised intelligence into its
decision-making process.

Data availability for the sensing enterprise is abundant. The past
few years have seen an explosion in the amount and variety of data
created. Used correctly, this information has the potential
to transform business processes and drive enterprise success.
In parallel, progress in the topics of event-based computing have
boosted research in real-time analytics and allow optimal business
decision making in (near) real time.

Despite the significant progress, a number of key research challenges
remain to be addressed. These concern issues like identifying
the appropriate data in order to improve business insight and allow
responsive business decision making; mining information from external
data sources, like social media; integrating disparate data sources
for deeper insights; understanding the power of such data to drive
the development of new products, services and business models;
getting the right data to the right people at the right time throughout
the organization; and ensuring the right balance between computer
analytics and human intuition to ensure optimal decision making.
