Business Intelligence (BI) is a broad category of technologies that enables an organization to collect and analyze raw data in order to generate knowledge and provide decision support at the strategic, tactical, and operational levels. It encompasses several scientific domains including computer science, data science, web science, and decision theory. It is well known that most analytical decisions are based on context-awareness to react to a local situation but taking the global state into account. In the software engineering domain, role-based software development has gained significant attention to systematically model context and context-specific activities of objects. The summer school will focus on modeling and algorithmic approaches as well as techniques at the system level to show the impact on context-awareness for BI applications.

The summer school brings together the researchers from two structured research programs, the German, DFG-funded research training group RoSI 1907 “Role-based Software Infrastructures” as well as the European Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate Program IT4BI-DC “Information Technologies for Business Intelligence” to share common views on the particular topic as well as layout current findings to attendees of the summer school not currently enrolled in one of the specific programs. Out of the network of the organizing research programs, we will invite internationally renowned speakers providing the lectures for the summer school.
