Call For Papers


Performance of Business Database Applications (PBDA’14)

Warsaw, Poland, September 7-10, 2014


We would like to cordially invite you to consider contributing a paper to PBDA 2014 - held as a part of the Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems (FedCSIS 2014).

FedCSIS is an annual international multi-conference organized by the Polish Information Processing Society (PTI) in technical cooperation with the IEEE Region 8, IEEE Computer Society, IEEE Poland Section Computer Society Chapter, IEEE Poland (Gdansk) Section Computer Society Chapter, ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing, ACM Lodz Chapter, International Federation for Information Processing, European Alliance for Innovation, Informatics Europe, IEEE-CIS Poland Section Chapter, Asociación de Técnicos de Informática, Committee of Computer Science of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Polish Society for Business Informatics, Polish Chamber of Information Technology and Telecommunications, Polish Chamber of Commerce for High Technology and Eastern Cluster ICT Poland, Mazovia Cluster ICT.

Modern business applications process large amounts of persistent data. Thus, a key aspect infuencing the speed of such applications is the query processing time. This time can be optimized in a variety of ways, ranging from classic - such as automatic query rewriting or the usage of a variety of indexing techniques, through the variety of cashing techniques, automated database tuning, etc. On the other hand, application maintenance costs are closely related to the quality of the application architecture. Together, both those aspects lead to the search for optimization techniques that integrate with different intermediate layers and the use of alternative data persistence solutions. The development of graphics processing units and their unique computing power-price ratio also suggests searching for the acceleration of data processing based on GPUs. In addition to universal optimization techniques it is also worth looking into the use of domain knowledge in optimization mechanisms. The proposed workshop is planned to review the research on this broader query optimization process.


Topics include (but are not limited to):
- Extending the capabilities of object relational mappings
- Usage of the GPUs in query processing
- Indexing techniques
- Usage of metadata and domain knowledge in optimization processes
- Usage of fuzzy sets and rough sets in databases
- Cashing techniques
- Data snapshots
- Non-relational DBMS
- Column-oriented DBMS
- Hybrid DBMS
- Storage and analysis of time series
- Automated database tuning
- ETL optimization
- Business Intelligence optimization


Papers should be submitted by April 23, 2014 (strict deadline). Preprints will be published on a USB memory stick provided to the FedCSIS participants. Only papers presented during the conference will be submitted to the IEEE for inclusion in the Xplore Digital Library. Furthermore, proceedings, published in a volume with ISBN and ISSN numbers will posted at the conference WWW site. Moreover, most Events' organizers arrange quality journals, edited volumes, etc. and may invite selected extended and revised papers for post-conference publications (information can be found at the websites of individual events).
