Dutch Belgian Database Day 2014 (DBDBD 2014)
October 17th, 2014
Elzenveld Hotel & Seminarie, Antwerp, Belgium
The Dutch Belgian Database Day (DBDBD) is a yearly one-day workshop organized by a Belgian or Dutch university, whose general topic is database research. DBDBD invites submissions (1 page abstract) on a broad range of database and database-related topics, including but not limited to data storage and management, theoretical database issues, database performance, data mining, information retrieval, data semantics, querying, ontologies etc.
At the DBDBD, junior researchers from the Netherlands and Belgium can present their recent results, and meet senior researchers in the field of databases. It is an excellent opportunity to meet up with your Belgian/Dutch colleagues, and to get informed about the (recent) database-related research performed in Belgian/Dutch universities. The workshop is also open to non-Belgian/Dutch participants (presentations are in English). The workshop consists of oral presentations. There are no printed proceedings. Abstracts of talks will be published on the workshop's website.
This year, DBDBD is organized by ADReM, the Advanced Database Research and Modelling group of the University of Antwerp and under auspices of SIKS, the Dutch research school for information and knowledge systems. DBDBD 2014 will be held at the Elzenveld Hotel & Seminarie in Antwerp (Belgium), on Friday October 17th, 2014.
