EDBT: 23rd International Conference on Extending Database Technology, 30th March-2nd April, 2020
The EDBT series of conferences is an established and prestigious forum for the exchange of the latest research results in data management. Held in an attractive European location, the conference provides unique opportunities for database researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore new ideas, techniques, and tools, and to exchange experiences. The previous events were held in Venice, Vienna, Cambridge, Avignon, Valencia, Konstanz, Prague, Heraklion, Munich, Nantes, St Petersburg, Lausanne, Uppsala, Berlin, Genoa, Athens, Brussels, Bordeaux, Venice, Vienna and Lisbon. Following the successful SIGMOD/PODS model, EDBT and ICDT are held annually as joint conferences, beginning in 2009.
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 today’s applications, data management technology constantly broadens its reach, exploiting new hardware and software to achieve innovative results.
EDBT 2020 will be held in beautiful Copenhagen, Denmark on March 30-April 2, 2020, invites submissions of original research contributions, including experiment and analysis papers, system papers and visionary papers, 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
Experiments and Analyses papers
EDBT 2020 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 must be marked accordingly, by stating \”Experiments and Analyses\” as subtitle in the submitted PDF. 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.
EDBT 2020 further invites the submission of papers that describe novel architectures for data systems, and non-obvious lessons learned in their application and usage. Such systems papers feature details on design goals, system architecture, novel abstractions, and design justifications. The maturity of the systems is demonstrated by an implementation and evaluation of the overall systems’ performance. That is, this paper category targets system overview papers, particular aspects of which may have been explored in detail in prior publications. Systems papers must be marked accordingly, by stating \”Systems Paper\” as subtitle in the submitted PDF. Systems papers are reviewed by the same program committee as the other research papers, but will be evaluated and assessed as appropriate for systems papers.
Visionary papers provide a forum for the identification and discussion of new or emerging areas, innovative or risky approaches, or emerging applications that will require extensions to established techniques. A visionary paper does not have to include results already but should:
Describe an area in which there is a need for significant new results; the vision articulated should be for research that may take years to investigate fully, and for which there may be scope for a variety of approaches.
Motivate research in the area by making it clear that there are challenging problems to be solved, and that the solutions to these problems would be valuable.
Motivate future research in the area by making the case that there is a need for substantial technical contributions, such as the provision of new theoretical foundations, the development of new techniques or architectures, or the creation of new communities.
Visionary papers are reviewed by the same program committee as research papers. Visionary papers must be marked accordingly, by stating \”Visionary\” as subtitle in the submitted PDF, as well as by choosing \”Visionary\” as primary subject area.
EDBT 2020 invites the submission of visionary papers that describe an area in which there is a need for significant new results; the vision articulated should be for research that may take years to investigate fully, and for which there may be scope for a variety of approaches.
Visionary papers shall motivate research in the area by making it clear that there are challenging problems to be solved, and that the solutions to these problems would be valuable. Visionary papers shall motivate future research in the area by making the case that there is a need for substantial technical contributions, such as the provision of new theoretical foundations, the development of new techniques or architectures, or the creation of new communities.
All submissions will be electronic via Easychair.
Regular research papers (as well as E&A papers, Systems papers and Visionary papers) have a page limit of 12 pages.
For further information on the formatting instructions and submission restrictions, see below.
Conflicts of interest (COI)
When submitting a research paper, the submission site will request information about conflicts of interest of the paper’s authors with program committee (PC) members. It is the full responsibility of all authors of a paper to identify all and only the PC members they have a COI with as defined below. Papers with incorrect or incomplete COI information at the time when submission closes are rejected. A paper author has a conflict of interest with a PC member when, and only when, one or more of the following conditions holds:
The PC member is a co-author of the paper.
The PC member has been a co-worker in the same company or university within the past two years.
The PC member has been a collaborator within the past two years.
The PC member is or was the author\’s primary thesis advisor, no matter how long ago.
The author is or was the PC member\’s primary thesis advisor, no matter how long ago.
The PC member is a relative or close personal friend of the author.
Duplicate submissions and novelty requirements
A research paper submitted to EDBT 2020 cannot be under review for any other publishing forum or presentation venue, including conferences, workshops, and journals, during the time it is being considered for EDBT. Furthermore, after you submit a research paper to EDBT, you must await the response from EDBT and only resubmit elsewhere if your paper is rejected (or withdrawn at your request) from EDBT.
All research papers submitted to EDBT 2020 must present substantial novel research not described in any prior publication. A prior publication is either (a) a paper of five pages or more presented, or accepted for presentation, at a refereed conference or workshop with proceedings or (b) an article published, or accepted for publication, in a refereed journal. If a EDBT 2020 submission has (limited, less than 5 pages) overlap with a prior publication, the submission must cite the prior publication.
Any violations of the above policy will result in the immediate rejection of the submitted paper.
Length, file type, and formatting
Length: Regular research papers, Experiments and Analyses papers, Systems papers and Visionary papers have a page limit of 12 pages (including references and appendices).
File type: Each research paper is to be submitted as a single PDF file, formatted for A4 paper and no more than 5 MB in file size. Submitted papers must print without difficulty on a variety of printers, using Adobe Acrobat Reader.
