*** Call for Doctoral Consortium ***

21st European Conference on Advances in Databases
and Information Systems

Hilton Cyprus, Nicosia, Cyprus

24 - 27 September, 2017

The internationally recognized ADBIS conference already for 21 years is
gathering researchers and practitioners around topics related to databases,
data processing, and information systems, in general. The conference is run
in Europe but attracts researchers from all over the world. The 21st ADBIS
conference will be held in Nicosia, Cyprus. The conference is accompanied
by satellite events, including doctoral consortia and workshops.


The Doctoral Consortium (DC) is a forum where PhD students can present
their research ideas, confront them with the scientific community, receive
feedback from mentors, and tie cooperation bounds. Students will receive
inspiration from their peers and will have a chance to discuss their research
objectives with senior members of the community in the context of an
established international conference.

The DC session will take place on September 24, in parallel with the
workshop sessions. Each participant will present her/his work, followed by
a discussion with senior researchers.


We seek PhD students who have either determined the direction of their
thesis research (probably with some preliminary results already published),
but who still have substantial work to complete, or PhD student participants
who are in the early stages of their dissertation year. It is not required to
have a paper accepted for the main conference in order to participate in
the DC.


To apply to the DC, please submit a single-authored paper (which will
appear in the proceedings of DC), accompanied by a short email from the
thesis advisor stating support for your participation in the DC, describing
the current status of the thesis research, and giving your expected date of

The papers for DC should be at most 12 pages in Springer format (formatting
instructions can be obtained via and
describe the state of the whole PhD project, rather than a specific completed
result. The paper should outline the objectives, the problem, state of the art,
results obtained so far, and what is still to be done in the frame of the PhD
project. If an author prefers to present a completed research result, the
paper should be submitted to the main conference or one of accompanying
workshops. A paper submitted to the DC may not be under review for any
other conference or journal during the time it is being considered for the DC.

Submissions should be made electronically in PDF format at CMT: In case of multiple
files, please submit a single compressed file (zip or rar). After logging into
CMT, please choose the “ADBIS 2017 Doctoral Consortium” track.


Each paper submitted to the DC will be reviewed by at least two members
of the DC program committee and will be judged based on originality,
technical merit, presentation quality, and relevance. The authors of
successful submissions must take into account the reviewers’ comments
during the preparation of the final version and describe the changes in a
separate document to be submitted together with the final camera-ready
version. The program committee reserves the right to reject a paper if the
final version does not meet the requirements above.

Applications not adhering to the provided guidelines (including page limits)
will not be considered. The authors of accepted papers must register to the
conference, attend the DC and present their work.


The DC papers will be published by Springer, together with the ADBIS
workshops proceedings, in the Advances in Intelligent Systems and
Computing series.
