Conference Call for Papers

ICDT is a series of international scientific conferences on research of data management theory (https://databasetheory.org/icdt-pages). Since 2009, it is annually and jointly held with EDBT (Extending DB Technology).

The 23rd edition of ICDT is planned to take place in Copenhagen, Denmark, from March 26th to March 29th 2020.
Broadening Scope
As ICDT strives to broaden its scope, ICDT 2020 will have a Reach Out Track that calls for

novel formal frameworks or directions for database theory and/or
onnections between principles of data management and other communities.

The aim of the Reach Out track is to present novel and important directions for database theory and to expand the scope and impact of ICDT towards neighboring communities such as Database Systems, Artificial Intelligence, Knowledge Representation, Machine Learning, Programming Languages, Distributed Computing, and Operating Systems. It is reasonable for articles submitted to this track to be be shorter than regular ICDT submissions. Submissions will be judged mainly in terms of their potential to lead to valuable and impactful theoretical developments. We encourage authors to illustrate the potential impact via convincing examples, preliminary results, and clearly specified open problems.
Topics of Interest

Every topic related to the principles of data management is relevant to ICDT. Particularly welcome are contributions that connect data management to theoretical computer science, and those that connect database theory and database practice.

Examples of relevant topics include:

Data mining, information extraction, information retrieval, and database aspects of machine learning
Data models, design, structures, semantics, query languages, and algorithms for data management
Distributed and parallel databases, cloud computing
Connections between databases and knowledge representation
Graph databases, (semantic) Web data, and Web services
Data streams and sketching
Data-centric (business) process management and workflows
Data and knowledge integration and exchange, data provenance, views, and data warehouses
Domain-specific databases (multimedia, scientific, spatial, temporal, text)
Data privacy and security, concurrency, and recovery

Submission Instructions

All submissions will be electronic via Easychair.

Papers must be written in English and provide sufficient detail to allow the program committee to assess their merits. The results must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere, including the proceedings of other symposia or workshops.

Papers must be submitted as PDF documents, using the LIPIcs style. Papers must be at most 15 pages, excluding references. Additional details may be included in a clearly marked appendix, which, however, will be read at the discretion of the program committee (online appendices are not allowed). Papers not conforming to these requirements may be rejected without further consideration.

The proceedings will appear in the Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs) series, based at Schloss Dagstuhl. This guarantees that the proceedings will be available online and free of charge, while the authors retain the rights over their work.

At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to register at the conference and to present the paper.

An award will be given to the Best Paper. Also, an award will be given to the Best Newcomer Paper written by newcomers to the field of database theory. The latter award will preferentially be given to a paper written only by students; in that case the award will be called Best Student-Paper Award. The program committee reserves the following rights: not to give any award; to split an award among several papers; and to define the notion of a newcomer. Papers authored or co-authored by program committee members are not eligible for any award.
