BNCOD 2013 : 29th British National Conference on Databases
Conference Series : British National Conference on Databases
Call For Papers
29th British National Conference on Databases
University of Oxford, United Kingdom
8-10 July 2013
CALL FOR PAPERS
Abstract deadline: 31 January, 2013
Paper deadline: 7 February 2013
BNCOD 2013 seeks research papers for presentation at the conference
and subsequent publication. It welcomes research papers on a broad
range of topics related to data-centric computation. For some years,
every edition of BNCOD has centred around a main theme, acting as a
focal point for keynote addresses, tutorials, and research papers. The
theme of BNCOD 2013 will be Big Data; it encompases a growing need to
manage data that is too big, too fast, or too hard for the existing
technology (Sam Madden: From Databases to Big Data. IEEE Internet
Computing 16(3): 4-6 (2012)).
BNCOD promises a very exciting programme featuring keynotes and
tutorials by distinguished researchers.
Christoph Koch will speak on Compilation and Synthesis in Big Data
Analytics and Dan Suciu will speak on Big Data Begets Big Database
Theory. There will be a further keynote by Peter Buneman.
There will also be tutorials on Querying Big Social Data by Wenfei Fan
and on Big Data Analytics by Chris Re.

in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Accepted
papers will only be published if they are presented in person by a
registered author at the conference.
Submissions are reviewed in a single-blind manner. They must be in PDF
