          CALL FOR PAPERS: VLDB2003

     29th International Conference on Very Large Data Bases
            Humboldt-Universit"at zu Berlin, Germany
                      September 9-12, 2003

             http://www.vldb.informatik.hu-berlin.de

After 25 years VLDB returns to Berlin in  2003  to  continue  the
long   lasting   tradition  of  VLDB  conferences  as  a  premier
international   forum   for   database   researchers,    vendors,
practitioners, application developers, and users.

The VLDB conference reflects the increasing challenges of an ever 
more  complex  technical  world.  The  scope  for  submissions of 
original results has extended from all technical aspects of  data 
management  to the infrastructures of which databases have become 
an  essential  part, and  to  applications  which  heavily depend
on  database   technology.   We   invite  submission of technical
papers, papers with  visionary   contributions,   proposals   for
panels,  tutorials,  and  demonstrations,  all  of  which present
the most critical issues and  views  on  practical   leading-edge
database technology, applications, and techniques.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

VLDB 2003 invites submissions on new contributions in  the  field 
of  data  management, including  novel  usage  of data management
technology.  VLDB  2003   strongly   encourages   the  submission
of   creative   work   that  goes  beyond improvements of already
known results. Submissions may cover novel  approaches   in  data
management,     visions   that   present   new   viewpoints   and
challenges, or a description of the implementation or  deployment
of  advanced  database technology in an industrial or application
setting. Furthermore, since new challenging  applications  appear
on  the horizon, papers that describe those with respect to their
technical substance, their  impact,  and  their   importance  and
relate    them   to   today's   database   technology   are  also
solicited.

To  accommodate  the  spectrum  of  papers,  VLDB   2003  Program
Committee   will   be  organized   into  three  tracks:  (1) Core
Database System Technology, (2)  Infrastructure  for  Information
Systems,     (3)     Industrial   Applications    &   Experience.
Accordingly,  like in 2002 VLDB  2003  will  divide  the  Program
Committee  by  subject  area rather than  by geographical  region
as in earlier years. Nonetheless, we remain committed to maintain
the geographical balance in all aspects  of the conference.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Research Papers: For each paper, authors  must  first  submit  an
abstract  by February 11, 2003 (9:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time -
PST). Full papers must be submitted by February  18,  2003  (9:00
p.m.  PST). Papers  must  be  submitted electronically using the 
conference management tool. Detailed  information  on  the  paper
submission procedure is available there in January 2003.  Further
questions may be addressed to the appropriate PC  chairs:   Serge
Abiteboul       (Core      Database      Technology      Program,
Serge.Abiteboul [at] inria.fr),   Mike   Carey   (Infrastructure   for
Information  System  Program,  carey [at] bea.com),  and  Pat Selinger
(Industrial Applications & Experience  Program,  pgs [at] us.ibm.com).
Papers will be judged  according to their  category,  so  authors
should  give  careful  consideration  to  placing  their   papers
appropriately.   Papers  must   not   be   published   or   under
consideration  to  be  published   elsewhere.   Nominations   for
topics  and speakers for keynotes  are welcome.

Tutorial Proposals: Tutorial proposals must clearly identify  the 
intended  audience.  Tutorials whose audience is broader than the
database research community are encouraged. Proposals must be  no
more than five pages, and must include enough material to provide
both the scope and depth of  the  material  to  be  covered.  The
intended length  of the tutorial (1.5 or 3 hours) should also  be
indicated. Proposals should be submitted electronically by  March
1,     2003    (9:00    p.m.    PST)    to:    Rakesh    Agrawal,
ragrawal [at] almaden.ibm.com. The submission must contain  the  name,
e-mail   address,   telephone  number,  and  fax  number  of  the
speaker.  Tutorial  presentations  will   be    made    available
to    VLDB  participants,   and  must be ready for publication by
July 1, 2003 (9:00 p.m. PST).

Panel Proposals: Panel  proposals  should  address  controversial
issues and must be debate-oriented rather  than a series of short 
presentations. The proposal should include  the  topic  title,  a 
short statement about the importance and novelty of the panel and 
format to be followed, in particular how the audience  is  to  be 
included.  Panel  proposals should be submitted electronically by
March   1,   2003   (9:00   p.m.   PST)   to:    Stefano    Ceri,
ceri [at] elet.polimi.it.

Demonstration Proposals: Demonstration proposals should focus  on
new   technology,   advances   in   applying  databases,  or  new
techniques. Demonstration proposals must be  no  more  than  four
pages, and  should  give a short description of the  demonstrated 
system, its significance and contribution.  Proposals  should  be
submitted  electronically  by  March  1, 2003 (9:00 p.m. PST) to: 
Norman Paton, norm [at] cs.man.ac.uk.  Short papers  describing  demos 
will appear in the Proceedings.

Co-location of Workshops and Conferences: We are  happy  to  have
events,  workshops, and conferences that are co-located with VLDB
2003 before of after (but not during)  the  conference.  We   are
happy   to   help   synchronize  different   workshops in case of
overlap in content and time. Such synchronization will happen for
the then known workshops  by  the end  of  January.  Notification
of  such  events   should   be   directed   to:   Gunter   Saake,
saake [at] iti.cs.uni-magdeburg.de

Ph.D. workshop: The workshop brings together Ph.D.  students  for
presenting  their  ongoing  research  in  databases  and  related
fields. Papers of 5 pages maximum should be  submitted  by  April
15, 2003  (9:00  p.m.  PST)  to:  Marc  Scholl, Marc.Scholl [at] uni-
konstanz.de.
