EDBT 2014 : International Conference on Extending Database Technology
Conference Series : Extending Database Technology
Call For Papers
EDBT: 17th International Conference on Extending Database Technology,
March 24-28, 2014, Athens, Greece
The International Conference on Extending Database Technology is a leading international forum for database researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to discuss cutting-edge ideas, and to exchange techniques, tools, and experiences related to data management. Data management is an essential enabling technology for scientific, engineering, business, and social communities. Data management technology is driven by the requirements of applications across many scientific and business communities, and runs on diverse technical platforms associated with the web, enterprises, clouds and mobile devices. The database community has a continuing tradition of contributing with models, algorithms and architectures, to the set of tools and applications enabling day-to-day functioning of our societies. Faced with the broad challenges of today's applications, data management technology constantly broadens its reach, exploiting new hardware and software to achieve innovative results.
EDBT 2014 invites submissions of original research contributions, as well as descriptions of industrial and application achievements, and proposals for tutorials and software demonstrations. We encourage submissions relating to all aspects of data management defined broadly, and particularly encourage work on topics of emerging interest in the research and development communities.
The Proceedings of EDBT will be published by ACM in the International Conference Proceedings Series.
Abstract submission deadline: 15th October 2013
Paper submission deadline: 22nd October 2013
Notification: 22nd December 2013
Camera-ready deadline: 23rd January 2014
Topics of Interest
We welcome papers on topics including, but not limited to, the following:
Availability, Reliability, and Scalability
Tuning, Monitoring, Benchmarking and Performance Evaluation
Big Data Storage, Processing and Transformation
Data Curation, Annotation and Provenance
Data Management in Clouds
Complex Event Processing and Data Streams
Data Mining, Clustering and Knowledge Discovery
Data Warehousing, Large-Scale Analytics, and ETL Tools
DBMS on emerging hardware architectures
Heterogeneous Databases and Interoperability
Middleware and Workflow Management
Parallel, Distributed and Grid Data Management
Privacy, Trust and Security in Databases
Indexing, Query Processing and Optimization
Semantic Web and Knowledge Management
Sensor and Mobile Data Management
Scientific and Statistical Databases
Social Networks and Analysis
Spatial, Temporal, and Geographic Databases
Text Databases and Information Retrieval
XML and Semi-Structured Databases
Modeling, Mining and Querying User Generated Content
User Interfaces and Data Visualization
Papers should not exceed 12 pages, and will be selected for inclusion in the program on the basis of their originality, significance and rigor.
All submissions must be original work that currently is not in submission to any other venue. A paper submitted to EDBT cannot be under review for any other publishing forum or presentation venue (including conferences, workshops, and journals) during the time it is being considered for EDBT. Furthermore, after you submit to EDBT, you must await our response and only resubmit elsewhere if your paper is rejected (or withdrawn at your request) from EDBT. Violation of this policy will result in a straight reject. This restriction applies to identical submissions as well as to submissions with a substantial overlap in scientific content and results.
Inter-Disciplinary and Visionary Papers
These papers should not exceed 6 pages, and will be selected for inclusion in the program principally on the basis of their ability to bridge the gap between databases and other disciplines and push the boundaries of current database research with radically new vision. Originality and significance will be judged based on models, algorithms and applications that address emerging challenges and that require extensions to established research. PC members will receive special guidelines to judge these papers. Presentation of these papers will be organized in a panel discussion.
