The joint EDBT/ICDT Ph.D. Workshop is intended to bring together Ph.D.
students working on topics related to the EDBT and the ICDT conference series.
The workshop will offer Ph.D. students the opportunity to present, discuss,
and receive feedback on their research in a constructive and international

The workshop will be accompanied by prominent professors and researchers in the
field of database technology and theory. These accompanying professors will
participate actively and contribute to the discussions.

The workshop is co-located with and will take place immediately before the
EDBT/ICDT 2010 joint conference in Lausanne, Switzerland. The workshop language
is English.

---Topics of Interest---

As for the EDBT/ICDT conferences series, all topics from the field of

Papers describing doctoral work should be submitted in PDF or PostScript
format before 24.00 CET (Central European Time) on November 16th, 2009. The
paper length must not exceed 6 pages (including all parts!). The paper has to
be formatted according to the ACM SIG Proceedings Template (please use A4 as
paper size NOT letter). Workshop and paper language is English. You can post
your submission using the following URL (please select the "EDBT_2010 PhD
Workshop" as track for your submission):

In contrast to regular conference papers, submissions should address
specifically doctoral work! Therefore, the following elements are recommended:

- A clear formulation of the research question.
- An identification of the significant problems in the field of research.
- An outline of the current knowledge of the problem domain, as well as the
state of existing solutions.
- A presentation of any preliminary ideas, the proposed approach and the
results achieved so far.
- A sketch of the applied research methodology.
- A description of the Ph.D. project's contribution to the problem
- A discussion of how the suggested solution is different, new, or better
as compared to existing approaches to the problem.

Please note, that similar to a Ph.D. thesis, only a single author is
allowed per submission to the Ph.D. workshop. If several Ph.D. students,
usually working together as a team, want to submit, every team member has to
submit individually. The Ph.D. advisor is not stated as co-author.

The intention of this workshop is to support and inspire Ph.D. students during
their ongoing research efforts. Therefore, it is necessary that authors will
have neither achieved their Ph.D. degree nor officially submitted their thesis
before the Ph.D. workshop (March 22, 2010). To enforce this rule we require
authors to disclose their expected graduation date and their advisor's name
when submitting. Ph.D. students that have already published significant parts
of their work at some other major conference (e.g. SIGMOD, VLDB, ER, ICDE,
etc.) are asked to step back and offer other Ph.D. students the opportunity to
discuss their research topics.

Accepted submissions will be published in the workshop proceedings.
Furthermore, we plan to publish post-workshop proceedings of selected and
revised submissions in the ACM Digital Library, as we did in the last years.

Once again, we plan to award a prize for the best submission.

Participants should register for the EDBT/ICDT conference itself at student
