Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Core database technologies (e.g. query processing and optimization, database concurrency control).
  • Non-traditional data management architectures (e.g. data stream management, computational clouds, peer-to-peer systems, replica management).
  • Data management applications (e.g. Web mashups, social networks, geographical information systems, location-based services, scientific databases, sensor networks, crowd-sourcing).
  • Models and languages for the management of data (e.g. XML, RDF, probabilistic databases, meta-data management, multi-media, graph data management).
  • Techniques for high performance and scalability in the management of data (e.g. indexing, hardware accelerators, new hardware technologies).
  • Other aspects of modern information systems (e.g. security, privacy, user interfaces, energy use minimization).
  • Information retrieval and data mining.
