Conference Overview

The British National Conference on Databases (BNCOD) was established in 1980 as a forum for research into the theory and practice of databases and, since then, BNCOD has attracted an international audience to discuss the leading research topics of the day in the field.

The theme of BNCOD 2008, the 25th in the series, is "Sharing Data, Information and Knowledge".

Conference Format

In addition to the main conference programme, to commemorate 25 years of the conference a specially commissioned one-day workshop will be included. Over the course of the workshop, world leading database researchers will review the state of the art and project future directions in database research. There will be a PhD forum associated with the conference and co-located workshops.

Papers and Submission

BNCOD 2008 Programme Committee invites submissions of substantial, original and previously unpublished research in all fields of databases and related areas for the Technical Programme of the conference. Both full (12 pages) and short (8 pages) papers and posters (4 pages describing work in progress) can be submitted.

All papers will be published in the conference proceedings, as in previous years, by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

Papers should be submitted at
