Call For Papers

SBBD is the official database event of the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC). It is the largest venue in Latin America for presentation and discussion of research results in the database domain. In its 27th edition, the symposium will be held in the City of São Paulo, in the State of São Paulo, on October 15-18, 2012.

SBBD brings together researchers, students and practitioners, from Brazil and abroad, to discuss problems related to the main topics in modern database technologies. SBBD usually gathers nearly 500 attendees. Past editions of SBBD have been organized in cooperation with ACM/SIGMOD and partially sponsored by the VLDB Endowment. Along with technical sessions, the symposium also includes invited talks and tutorials given by distinguished speakers from the international research community. SBBD also promotes a Thesis Workshop, a Demos Session, Tutorials and a Poster Session as co-located events. This year SBBD is co-located with the Brazilian Symposium on Multimedia Systems (WebMedia) and Brazilian Symposium on Collaborative Systems (SBSC) creating an environment for exchanging experiences between these very co-related areas.
