EDBT 2011 : 14th International Conference on Extending Database Technology
Conference Series : Extending Database Technology
Call For Papers
EDBT 2011 Call for papers
Data management constitutes the essential enabling technology for scientific, engineering, business, and social communities. Data management technology is driven by the needs in applications such as the semantic web, the management of scientific data, data management at Web scale, virtual libraries, and embedded databases. Long-established techniques and solutions are now challenged by the increasing application requirements as well as the micro-architectural evolution that led to deep memory hierarchies and multi-core platforms.
The database community has a continuing tradition of contributing with models, algorithms, and architectures, to the set of tools and applications enabling day-to-day functioning of our societies. Faced with the broad challenges of today's applications, data management technology constantly broadens its reach, exploiting new hardware and software tools such as flash storage, graphic processors, card chips, peer-to-peer networks of thousands of machines, to achieve new innovative results.
EDBT 2010 invites submissions of original research contributions, as well as descriptions of industrial and application achievements and proposals for panels, tutorials and software demonstrations. Researchers are highly encouraged to submit bold contributions that advance the state of the art in data management in the large.
Topics of Interest
The conference covers a broad range of topics, including traditional database management as well new issues arising in any possible domain. Prospective authors are encouraged to consider novel topics and approaches rather than incremental improvements of existing results. We welcome papers on topics including, but not limited to, the following:
* Availability, Reliability, and Scalability
* Benchmarking and Performance Evaluation
* Biomedical Databases
* Complex Event Processing
* Data Curation, Annotation and Provenance
* Data management in Computing Clouds
* Data Models and Query Languages
* Data Streams and Publish-Subscribe Systems
* Data Structures and Indexing
* Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery
* Data Warehousing, OLAP, and ETL Tools
* Database Design and Tuning
* DBMS algorithms on emerging hardware architectures
* Digital Libraries, Museums, and Archives
* Heterogeneous Databases and Semantic Interoperability
* Middleware and Workflow Management
* Multimedia Databases
* Parallel, Distributed, P2P and Grid Data Management
* Personalization and Personal Information Systems
* Privacy and Security in trustworthy databases
* Query Processing and Optimization
* Replication, Caching, and Materialized Views
* Semantic Web and Knowledge Databases
* Scientific and Statistical Databases
* Spatial, Temporal, and Geographic Databases
* Text Databases and Information Retrieval
* User Interfaces and Data Visualization
* Web Information and Services
* XML and Semistructured Databases
Program chair: Anastasia Ailamaki, EPFL, Switzerland
Demo proposals should state the technical problem addressed by the system to be demonstrated, explain its novelty and its contribution. The proposals should also describe the demonstration scenario, with sufficient detail so that the demonstration PC can assess the facility with which conference participants can understand and appreciate the software demonstration.
Demo chair: Sihem Amer-Yahia, Yahoo! Research, USA
Industrial and Applications Papers
The Industry and Applications Track of the EDBT 2011 Conference will be a forum for high quality presentations on innovative commercial software and applications for all facets of information technology with emphasis on database systems, information retrieval systems, metadata management, information integration and XML. Submissions must relate to commercial software or applications of research technologies in practice. Acceptance criteria will be the novelty of software and the potential impact of the solution. Position papers from industry outlining trends and novel research requirements are also welcome.
Industrial and applications chairs: Daniela Florescu, Oracle, USA

Publication and IP issues
Papers will be made available in online conference proceedings, possibly hosted within the ACM Digital Library (subject to approval).
*** To enable conference attendees and the general community to
*** glimpse at the content a bit ahead of the conference, we plan
*** to make the papers electronically available before the
*** conference, on March 10, 2011.
*** Authors are thus encouraged to make sure the necessary
*** patent issues are solved and enable publication by this date.
