Call For Papers


The SSDBM international conference brings together scientific domain
experts, database researchers, practitioners, and developers for the
presentation and exchange of current research results on concepts,
tools, and techniques for scientific and statistical database
applications. The 25th SSDBM will provide a forum for original
research contributions and practical system design, implementation and
evaluation. The rich program of the research track will be
supplemented with invited talks, panel sessions, case-study papers,
and illustrated demonstrations of research prototypes and industrial

SSDBM 2013 will continue the tradition of past SSDBM meetings in
providing a stimulating environment to encourage discussion,
fellowship and exchange of ideas in all aspects of research related to
scientific and statistical database management.


Topics of particular interest include (but are not limited to):

- Modeling and representation of data, metadata, ontologies,
and processes, e.g., array-based data models
- Integration and exchange of data, including the federation
and management of institutional data repositories
- Design, implementation, optimization of scientific workflows
- Cyberinfrastructure for scientific computing and eScience
- Data-intensive and cloud computing
- System architectures in support of scientific and statistical
data management and analysis, e.g., multi-core, GPUs
- Querying of scientific data, including spatial, temporal,
spatio-temporal, and streaming data
- Annotation and provenance of data
- Mining and analysis of large-scale datasets
- Security and privacy
- Visualization and exploration
- Data support, case studies, and applications - particularly
for grand challenge science questions, e.g., sustainability,
global climate change


Research paper abstracts due February 12
Research, case-study, and demo papers due February 19
Notification April 12
Camera-ready papers due May 3


We solicit papers describing original work relevant to the management
of scientific and statistical data and not published or under review
elsewhere. SSDBM submissions can be of four kinds:

* Research papers (long and short): We solicit both full papers
and short papers (formatting details will be announced shortly).
The former will tend to be descriptions of complete technical work, while the
latter will tend to be descriptions of interesting, innovative ideas,
which nevertheless require more work to mature. General, vision
papers should also be submitted as short papers. Full papers will
be given a presentation slot in the conference, while short
papers will be presented in the form of posters. All
papers, regardless of size, will be given an entry in the conference

* Case-studies: We solicit papers (formatting details will
be announced shortly), which describe applications of existing technologies
to interesting science problems, including a description of the encountered
challenges, how they were overcome, and the lessons learned. All papers on
this track will be given an entry in the conference proceedings and a
presentation slot, though the presentation slot duration may
be shorter than for regular research papers.

* Demonstration papers: We solicit demonstration submissions (formatting
will be announced shortly) which should provide the motivation for the
demonstrated concepts, the information about the technology and the
system to be demonstrated (including a system description,
functionality and figures when applicable), and should state the
significance of the contribution. Selection criteria for the
demonstration proposals evaluation include: the novelty, the technical
advances and challenges, and the overall practical attractiveness of
the demonstrated system. Demonstration papers will also be given an
entry in the conference proceedings.
