Call for Industrial and Application Papers

  • Print

The International Conference on Extending Database Technology is a leading international forum for database researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to discuss cutting-edge ideas, and to exchange techniques, tools, and experiences related to data management. Data management constitutes the essential enabling technology for scientific, engineering, business, and social communities. Data management technology is driven by the needs in applications such as the semantic web, the management of scientific data, data management at Web scale, virtual libraries, and embedded databases. The database community has a continuing tradition of contributing with models, algorithms, and architectures, to the set of tools and applications enabling 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 new innovative results. EDBT 2013 invites submissions of descriptions of industrial and application achievements. We encourage submissions relating to all aspects of data management defined broadly, and particularly encourage work on topics of emerging interest in the research and development communities.

Types of Paper

The following two types of paper are considered:

  • Industrial Papers: papers that describe technical advances that address industrially relevant problems, and that have been carried out in a commercial setting that is described in the paper.
  • Application Papers: papers that describe applications that stretch, or present challenges to, established data management tools or techniques.

Submissions to this track can be in the form of extended abstracts (2 pages), short papers (6 pages) or full papers (12 pages), and will be selected for inclusion in the programme principally on the basis of their originality and significance. Please make it explicit in the submission if the paper is to be reviewed as an industrial or application paper.

Duplicate Submissions

All submissions must be original work that currently is not in submission to any other venue. A paper submitted to EDBT 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 to EDBT, you must await our response and only resubmit elsewhere if your paper is rejected (or withdrawn at your request) from EDBT. Violation of this policy will result in rejection of the submission, notification of the EDBT Executive, members of the EDBT'2013 PC, and notification of the editors or chairs of any other forums involved. This restriction applies to identical submissions as well as to submissions with a substantial overlap in scientific content and results.

Submission Guidelines

All aspects of the submission and notification process will be handled electronically. All papers should be submitted in electronic format using EasyChair. The submission web site is:

The deadline for paper submission is on October 26, 2012, 5:00pm Pacific Daylight Time. No late papers will be accepted. Submissions are reviewed following the single blind review process, meaning, you need not hide authors's names and affiliations.

Submission Format Instructions 

Papers must be formatted according to the conference's camera-ready format using the ACM proceedings double-column format. They must be submitted as PDF documents, and must follow the style of the document templates by ACM. In particular, templates to prepare your submission can be found on the ACM SIG Proceedings templates website. It is not permissible to change the template's font size, margins, intercolumn spacing, or line spacing. Templates are available in Word and LaTeX (version 2e). For the LaTeX formats, you may use either the standard style or the SIG-alternate style.
