CALL FOR PAPERS

22nd INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON DATABASE THEORY (ICDT 2019)

Lisbon, Portugal, around March 25th 2019 (tentative)

About ICDT

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
22nd edition of ICDT, in 2019, is planned to take place in Lisbon,
Portugal. For more info see https://databasetheory.org/node/87.

Broadening Scope

Continuing with the idea of broadening its scope, ICDT 2019 will have a
Reach Out track that calls for
- novel formal frameworks and/or
- articles that connect principles of data management to other communities.
Papers submitted to this track should suggest novel and important
directions for database theory and provide a theoretical basis for
understanding emerging areas in data management. This year we especially
encourage articles that introduce novel formal frameworks and/or establish
connections between the area of principles of data management and
neighboring communities such as Database Systems, Web Data, Operating
Systems, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Knowledge
Representation, Programming Languages, and Distributed Computing.

It is reasonable for articles submitted to the Reach Out track to be be
shorter than regular ICDT submissions. Such papers will be judged mainly in
terms of their potential to lead to further theoretical developments, and
therefore the efforts should be the focused on illustrating the proposed
framework via convincing examples, preliminary results, and clearly defined
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 are:
- 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 cycles and dates

ICDT has two submission cycles, the first providing the possibility of a
revision.

First cycle abstract deadline: March 27, 2018
Full paper submission deadline: April 3, 2018
Notification: May 30, 2018

Second cycle abstract deadline: September 16, 2018
Full paper submission deadline: September 23, 2018
Notification: December 5, 2018

Submission Instructions

All submissions will be electronic via EasyChair at
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icdt2019.

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 (
http://www.dagstuhl.de/en/publications/lipics/instructions-for-authors).
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.

Awards

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.
