BACKGROUND:

 

 

Information systems and database systems have always been a central topic of computer science. Additionally the integration of intelligence and data justifies its today’s attractiveness. Since 1990 DEXA is an annual international conference, located in Europe, which showcases state-of-the-art research activities in these areas.

 

DEXA 2008, the 19th conference in the series, will be held in Turin, Italy, during September 2008. It will continue to provide a forum for presenting research results in the area of database and intelligent systems and discussions on advanced applications and issues related to these areas. It will offer the opportunity to extensively discuss requirements, problems, and solutions in the field. The workshop and conference should inspire a fruitful dialogue between developers in practice, users of database and expert systems, and scientists working in the field.

 

DEXA 2008 invites research submissions on all topics related to database systems and intelligent systems including, but are not limited to those listed below.

 

*Applications of DB Systems and Information Systems *Applications of Expert Systems and Decision Support Systems *Constraint Modelling and Processing *Data and Information Modelling *Data and Information Integration *Data and Information Networks *Data and Information Privacy and Security *Data and Information Quality *Data and Information Semantics *Data and Information Streams *Data Structures and Data Management Algorithms *Database and Information System Architecture and Performance *Data Mining Algorithms *Data Mining Systems, Data Warehousing, OLAP *Digital Libraries *Distributed, Parallel, P2P, and Grid-based Databases *Expert Systems and Decision Support Systems *Information Retrieval and Database Systems *Interoperability *Knowledge Acquisition & Management *Knowledge Modelling *Knowledge Processing *Metadata Management *Mobile Data and Information *Multimedia Databases *Multi-databases and Database Federation *Object, Object Relational, and Deductive Databases *Pervasive Data and Information *Process Modelling *Process Support and Automation *Query Processing and Optimisation *Semantic Web and Ontologies *Sensor Data Management *Statistical and Scientific Databases *Temporal, Spatial, and High Dimensional Databases *User Interfaces to Databases and Information Systems *WWW and Databases *Workflow Management and Databases *XML and Databases

 

 

 

IMPORTANT DATES:

 

Paper Submission Deadline: 29th February, 2008 Notification of Acceptance: 10th May, 2008 Camera-ready Copies Due: 10th June, 2008

 

 

 

PAPER SUBMISSION:

 

Authors are invited to submit original research contributions or experience reports in English.

 

 * The submitted manuscript should closely reflect the final paper as it will appear in the Proceedings.

 * Papers should not exceed 14 pages in LNCS format (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html)

 * Any submission that exceeds length limits or deviates from formatting requirements may be rejected without review.

 

For paper registration and electronic submission see http://www.dexa.org starting in January 2008. Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity ofexposition. Authors are requested to submit their paper electronically before February 29, 2008.

 

Duplicate submissions are not allowed. A submission is considered to be a duplicate submission if, at any time during the time when the submission is under consideration, there is another paper with the following properties:

 

* the paper and the DEXA, DaWaK, EC-Web, TrustBus submission have at least one author in common;

* the paper is more than 4 pages long, when formatted in the DEXA format;

* the main technical content of the paper substantially overlaps that of the DEXA, DaWaK, EC-Web, TrustBus submission; and

* the paper is published or under consideration for publication in a refereed journal or proceedings (electronic or printed) that is generally available (e.g., not limited to conference attendees).

 

Authors are expected to agree to the following terms:

 

"I understand that the paper being submitted must not overlap substantially with any other paper that I am a co-author of and that is currently submitted elsewhere. Furthermore, previously published papers with any overlap are covered prominently in this submission."

 

Duplicate submissions will be rejected. Questions about this policy or how it applies to your work should be directed to the PC-chairs. For further inquiries, please contact the Conference Organisation Office (gabriela@faw.uni-linz.ac.at)
