IDEAS 2018 : 22nd International Database Engineering & Applications Symposium
Conference Series : International Database Engineering and Applications Symposium
Call For Papers
The annual IDEAS conference is a top international forum for data engineering researchers, practitioners, developers, and application users to explore revolutionary ideas and results, and to exchange techniques, tools, and experiences. We invite participation of all interested in this meeting which provides an insight into original research contributions relating to all aspects of database engineering defined broadly, and particularly topics of emerging interest describing work on integrating new technologies into products and applications, on experiences with existing and novel techniques, and on the identification of unsolved challenges.
As in the past, IDEAS 2018 will include tracks (Targeted Session) on current topics of interest to the community. This year, we would be organizing several; some of which are proposed below. These special tracks/themes will form part of the program along with the main event:
Big Data Applications (e.g. Health, Environment, Transport)
Data Sharing, Security and Privacy
Smart Cities and Data Analytics
Web and Cyber Security
If you and your colleagues would like to propose a track, please contact us ASAP (before February 18, 2018). Please include the topics, the track chair and the proposed addition to the program committee to handle the submissions for the track. http://confsys.encs.concordia.ca/IDEAS/ideas18/ideas18_track.php
