Call For Papers

The 15th International Symposium
on Database Programming Languages
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
October 27, 2015
hosted as part of SPLASH 2015

Call for Papers

For over 25 years, DBPL has established itself as the principal venue
for publishing and discussing new ideas at the intersection of
databases and programming languages. Many key contributions in query
languages for object-oriented data, persistent databases, nested
relational data, and semistructured data, as well as fundamental ideas
in types for query languages, were first announced at DBPL. Today,
this creative research area is broadening into a subfield of
data-centric computation, currently scattered among a range of
venues. DBPL is an established destination for such new ideas and
solicits submissions from researchers in databases, programming
languages or any other community interested in the design,
implementation or foundations of data-centric computation.

Keynote Speaker

DBPL 2015 will feature an invited talk by Dr. Marko A. Rodriguez
( of Datastax, on the topic

Gremlin: A Stream-Based Functional Language for OLTP and OLAP
Graph Computing


DBPL solicits practical and theoretical papers in all topics at the
intersection of databases and programming languages. Papers
emphasizing new topics or emerging areas are especially
welcome. Suggested, but not exclusive, topics of interest for
submissions include:

- Compiling Query Languages to Modern Hardware
- Data-Centric Programming Abstractions, Comprehensions, Monads
- Data Integration, Exchange, and Interoperability
- Data Synchronization and Bidirectional Transformations
- Declarative Data Centers
- Emerging and Nontraditional Data Models
- Language-Based Security in Data Management
- Language-Integrated Query Mechanisms
- Managing Uncertain and Imprecise Information
- Metaprogramming and Heterogeneous Staged Computation
- Programming Language Support for Databases
- Query Compilation and In-memory Databases
- Query Language Design
- Query Transformation and Optimization
- Schema Mapping and Metadata Management
- Semantics and Verification of Database Systems
- Stream Data Processing and Query Languages
- Type Systems for Data-Centric Programming
- Validation, Type-checking

Author Guidelines

Prospective authors are invited to submit full papers in English
presenting original research. Submitted papers must be unpublished
and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Submissions should be
no more than 10 pages long in the [ACM SIGPLAN] format.

Each submission should begin with a succinct statement of the
problem and a summary of the main results. Authors may provide more
details to substantiate the main claims of the paper by including a
clearly marked appendix at the end of the submission, which is not
included in the page limit and is read at the discretion of the

At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the symposium
to present their work.

Short papers of at most 4 pages ([ACM SIGPLAN] format) describing
work in progress, demos, research challenges or visions are also
welcome. Accepted short papers may be included or excluded from the
formal proceedings, whichever the author(s) prefer.

Full and short papers are both due on the deadline, June 15, 2015.
Abstracts of full papers should be submitted by June 10 to aid
reviewer selection.

The [submission site] will be open for submissions around one month
before the submission deadline.
