DBRank 2011
Fifth International Workshop on Ranking in Databases
In Conjunction with VLDB 2011
August 29, 2011, Seattle, Washington, USA

The Fifth International Workshop on Ranking in Databases (DBRank 2011) focuses on the semantics, modeling and implementation of ranking and ordering in database systems and applications. Held in conjunction with VLDB 2011, DBRank 2011 will be a leading international forum for researchers to explore cutting-edge ideas and results on ranking in database systems, starting from relational to semi-structured to unstructured data; and on different levels from query formulation to preference modeling to query processing to optimization frameworks.

Topics of interests include but are not limited to:
•Ranking relational data
•Rank-aware query processing and optimization
•New fundamental developments in top-k algorithms
•Cost-models for top-k algorithms and operators
•User preference specification and query languages
•Ranking in Web and XML databases
•Ranking in distributed and peer-to-peer databases
•Ranking as a data exploration tool
•Ranking queries in data streams and continuous monitoring systems
•Applications of ranking and top-k retrieval from databases
•Ranking multimedia data
•Domain-specific ranking
•Multidimensional data analysis using ranking tools
•Personalized ranking functions
•Learning user preferences and ranking functions
•Ranking and information extraction

We invite original, unpublished manuscripts for 6-page papers inclusive of all references and figures. Papers should report completed results. Vision papers and descriptions of work-in-progress are also welcome as short paper submissions (3 pages). Papers must be written in English, and formatted according to the VLDB proceedings format.

The DBRank proceedings will be included in the VLDB 2011 proceedings. Furthermore, authors of the best papers of DBRank will be invited to submit an extended version for inclusion in a book published by Springer (along with best papers on related topics from other workshops). A journal special issue on the best papers of the workshop is also under consideration.

Submissions should be uploaded through the submission site at:
