PLEASE NOTE:  The paper submission deadline has been delayed until 1 Dec. 
2006,
              to avoid conflict with the SIGMOD submission deadline.

 
    2nd International Workshop on Self-Managing Database Systems (SMDB 
2007)
                      http://db.uwaterloo.ca/tcde-smdb/


                          16 April 2007, Istanbul, Turkey

                                Sponsored by the
             IEEE Data Engineering Workgroup on Self-Managing Databases
                          http://db.uwaterloo.ca/tcde-smdb/ 


                             In conjunction with the
           23rd International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE 2007)
                                 16-20 April 2007

Scope:

Information management systems are growing rapidly in scale and 
complexity, while skilled database administrators are becoming rarer and 
more expensive. Increasingly, the total cost of ownership of information 
management systems is dominated by the cost of people, rather than 
hardware or software costs.  This economic dynamic dictates that 
information systems of the future be more automated and simpler to use, 
with most administration tasks transparent to the user.
 
The aim of this workshop is to exchange ideas related to autonomic or 
self-management of data in an intimate, informal, and interactive 
environment. The format of the workshop will be a one-day workshop after 
ICDE, in which accepted papers will be briefly presented in a single track 
and discussed by all participants.  Workshop participants are encouraged 
to submit original research contributions or experience reports of 
previously unpublished work for presentation at the workshop, but 
participation in the workshop is not limited to those whose papers are 
accepted. Suggested main topics include, but are not limited to:
 
                 * Fundamentals and principles of self-managing 
information systems
                 * Architectures for self-managing information systems 
                 * Adaptive and autonomic query tuning 
                 * Self-diagnosing / -healing databases 
                 * Self-protecting databases 
                 * Automated provisioning of resources 
                 * Automated data integration 
                 * Autonomic enforcement of information quality 
                 * Self-managing distributed / decentralized / 
peer-to-peer information systems 
                 * Evaluation criteria and benchmarks for self-managing 
database systems 
                 * Policy automation for database administration 
                 * Data models for self-managing systems 
                 * Self-organizing databases
                 * Automated discovery of data semantics
                 * User acceptance and trust of autonomic features

Submission Guidelines:

Authors are invited to submit original research contributions in English 
in camera-ready format. The format of the electronic copy can be 
Postscript, Word, or PDF. Detailed formatting instructions and LaTeX 
macros are available on the IEEE Computer Society sites:
 
* ftp://pubftp.computer.org/Press/Outgoing/proceedings/ 
8.5x11%20-%20Formatting%20files
 
Submissions for review are limited to six pages in the specified format. 
Only electronic submissions will be accepted. Authors are required to 
submit papers to: 
                 https://msrcmt.research.microsoft.com/SMDB2007/ .
 
Authors of accepted papers will be strongly encouraged to submit a full 
paper of at most 10 pages for final publication. All papers accepted by 
the workshop will appear in the formal Proceedings of the Conference 
Workshops published by IEEE CS Press, and thus will be included in the 
digital library of IEEE CS. 

Important Dates:
