EDBT 2018 Research Track Call for Papers

The International Conference on Extending Database Technology (EDBT) is a leading international forum for database researchers, developers, and users to present and discuss cutting-edge ideas, and to exchange techniques, tools, and experiences related to data management. Data management is an essential enabling technology for scientific, business, and social communities. Data management technology is driven by the requirements of applications across many scientific, business and social communities, and runs on diverse technical platforms associated with the web, enterprises, clouds and mobile devices. The database community has a continuing tradition of contributing with models, algorithms and architectures to the set of tools and applications that enable day-to-day functioning of our societies. Faced with the broad challenges of todays applications, data management technology constantly broadens its reach, exploiting new hardware and software to achieve innovative results.

EDBT 2018, which will be held in beautiful Vienna, Austria on March 26-29, 2018 (http://edbticdt2018.at), invites submissions of original research contributions, as well as descriptions of industrial and application results, and proposals for tutorials and demonstrations. Industrial, demo, tutorial, and short paper submissions will be the subjects of further CFPs.

Topics of interest for regular research papers

We encourage submissions of research papers related to all aspects of data management defined broadly, and particularly encourage work on topics of emerging interest in the database research and development communities.

We welcome papers on topics including, but not limited to:

  • Availability, reliability, and scalability
  • Big data storage, processing and transformation
  • Complex event processing and data streams
  • Concurrency control, recovery, and transaction management
  • Data management in clouds
  • Data mining and knowledge discovery
  • Data quality, curation, and provenance
  • Data warehousing, large-scale analytics and ETL tools
  • Emerging hardware and in-memory databases
  • Experiments and analysis
  • Graph databases and semantic web
  • Heterogeneous databases, data integration
  • Middleware and workflow management
  • Parallel, distributed and grid data management
  • Privacy, trust and security in databases
  • Query processing and optimization
  • Scientific and statistical databases
  • Semi-structured and linked data management
  • Sensor and mobile data management
  • Social networks and crowdsourcing
  • Spatial, temporal, and geographic databases
  • Text databases and information retrieval
  • Tuning, monitoring, benchmarking and performance evaluation
  • User interfaces and data visualization

Note that EDBT 2018 also invites the submission of Experiments and Analyses (E&A) papers. E&A submissions focus on a comprehensive and detailed performance evaluation, appropriate methodology, and a fair assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of ideas published in previous work. The scientific contribution of an E&A paper lies in providing new insights into the strengths and weaknesses of existing methods rather than providing new methods. Papers proposing new solutions should be submitted to the regular research track. E&A papers are reviewed by the same program committee as the other research papers, but will be evaluated and assessed as appropriate for E&A papers.

Submission guidelines

Regular research papers and Experiments and Analyses papers have a page limit of 12 pages.
