About DB&IS 2020
Current complex IS and enterprise systems greatly benefit from using AI technologies such as machine learning, data mining and cognitive computing. On the other hand, data science dealing with analysis of big data is complementary to AI to serve IS. In addition, spatial data science develops methods for geospatial modelling, analysis, deep learning, and data mining in order to provide geospatial problem solving components for many IS in the areas like health care, security, marketing and environmental sustainability. All these new developments in data management and IS engineering should be backed with research in enterprise IS engineering, architectures and security of IS, Web IS, and data and knowledge engineering. With the explosion of data usage scenarios and shifts in computing platforms data management for and development of modern information systems has become crucial.
The Baltic conference on databases and information systems is an international forum, which provides an environment to exchange research findings and ideas for researchers, practitioners and PhD students on the crucial matters on engineering reliable, secure and sustainable information systems with data and data analysis in the central role.
The 14th edition of the Baltic DB&IS conference will feature original research and application papers on the theory, design, implementation and security of today's IS on a set of themes and issues. It will continue a series of successful biennial Baltic conferences on databases and information systems previously held in Trakai (1994, 2018), Tallinn (1996, 2002, 2008, 2014), Riga (1998, 2004, 2010, 2016), and Vilnius (2000, 2006, 2012).
The Baltic DB&IS 2020 conference will take place in Tallinn whose picturesque medieval Old Town is known around the world for its well-preserved completeness and authentic Hanseatic architecture. Enchanting atmosphere, rich cultural scene, beautiful surroundings, cutting-edge restaurants, cafés and clubs - there is certainly something for everyone in Tallinn.
