Final Research Track Call for Papers

One week left to submit your abstract (due on October 8, 2018)
Papers due shortly afterwards (October 12, 2018)

The International Conference on Extending Database Technology (EDBT) is 
a leading international forum for database researchers, developers, and 
users to present and discuss cutting-edge ideas, and to exchange 
techniques, tools, and experiences related to data management. Data 
management is an essential enabling technology for scientific, business, 
and social communities. Data management technology is driven by the 
requirements of applications across many scientific, business and social 
communities, and runs on diverse technical platforms associated with the 
web, enterprises, clouds and mobile devices. The database community has 
a continuing tradition of contributing with models, algorithms and 
architectures to the set of tools and applications that enable 
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 innovative 

EDBT 2019, which will be held in beautiful Lisboa, Portugal on March 
26-29, 2019 (http://edbticdt2019.inesc-id.pt), invites submissions of 
original research contributions, including experiment and analysis 
papers and system papers, as well as descriptions of industrial and 
application results, and proposals for tutorials and demonstrations. 
Industrial, demo, tutorial, and short paper submissions will be the 
subjects of further CFPs.

  Topics of Interest for Regular Research Papers

We encourage submissions of research papers related to all aspects of 
data management defined broadly, and particularly encourage work on 
topics of emerging interest in the database research and development 
communities. We welcome papers on topics including, but not limited to:

- Availability, reliability, and scalability
- Big data storage, processing and transformation
- Complex event processing and data streams
- Concurrency control, recovery, and transaction management
- Data management in clouds
- Data mining and knowledge discovery
- Data quality, curation, and provenance
- Data warehousing, large-scale analytics and ETL tools
- Emerging hardware and in-memory databases
- Experiments and analysis
- Graph databases and semantic web
- Heterogeneous databases, data integration
- Middleware and workflow management
- Parallel, distributed and grid data management
- Privacy, trust and security in databases
- Query processing and optimization
- Scientific and statistical databases
- Semi-structured and linked data management
- Sensor and mobile data management
- Social networks and crowdsourcing
- Spatial, temporal, and geographic databases
- Text databases and information retrieval
- Tuning, monitoring, benchmarking and performance evaluation
- User interfaces and data visualization

Experiments and Analyses papers

EDBT 2019 also invites the submission of Experiments and Analyses (E&A) 
papers. E&A submissions focus on a comprehensive and detailed 
performance evaluation, appropriate methodology, and a fair assessment 
of the strengths and weaknesses of ideas published in previous work. The 
scientific contribution of an E&A paper lies in providing new insights 
into the strengths and weaknesses of existing methods rather than 
providing new methods. Papers proposing new solutions should be 
submitted to the regular research track. E&A papers are reviewed by the 
same program committee as the other research papers, but will be 
evaluated and assessed as appropriate for E&A papers.

Systems papers

EDBT 2019 further invites the submission of papers that describe novel 
architectures for data systems and non-obvious lessons learned in their 
application. Such system and application papers feature details on 
design goals, system architecture, novel abstractions, and design 
justifications. The maturity of the systems and its applications is 
demonstrated by an implementation and evaluation of the overall system’s 
performance. That is, this paper category targets system overview 
papers, particular aspects of which may have been explored in detail in 
prior publications. These papers are reviewed by the same program 
committee as the other research papers, but will be evaluated and 
assessed as appropriate for system and applications papers.

Submission Guidelines

All submissions will be electronic via Easychair:

Regular research papers have a page limit of 12 pages.

For further information on the conference, venue, further CFPs, 
formatting instructions, submission guidelines, please refer to the EDBT 
2019 website:

Conflicts of interest (COI)

When submitting a research paper, the submission site will request 
information about conflicts of interest of the paper’s authors with 
program committee (PC) members. It is the full responsibility of all 
authors of a paper to identify all and only the PC members they have a 
COI with as defined below. Papers with incorrect or incomplete COI 
information at the time when submission closes are rejected. A paper 
author has a conflict of interest with a PC member when, and only when, 
one or more of the following conditions holds:

- The PC member is a co-author of the paper.
- The PC member has been a co-worker in the same company or university 
within the past two years.
- The PC member has been a collaborator within the past two years.
- The PC member is or was the author's primary thesis advisor, no matter 
how long ago.
- The author is or was the PC member's primary thesis advisor, no matter 
how long ago.
- The PC member is a relative or close personal friend of the author.

Duplicate submissions and novelty requirements

A research paper submitted to EDBT 2019 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 a research paper to EDBT, you must 
await the response from EDBT and only resubmit elsewhere if your paper 
is rejected (or withdrawn at your request) from EDBT.

All research papers submitted to EDBT 2019 must present substantial 
novel research not described in any prior publication. A prior 
publication is either (a) a paper of five pages or more presented, or 
accepted for presentation, at a refereed conference or workshop with 
proceedings or (b) an article published, or accepted for publication, in 
a refereed journal. If a EDBT 2019 submission has overlap with a prior 
publication, the submission must cite the prior publication.

Any violation of this policy will result in the immediate rejection of 
the submission.

Length, file type, and formatting

Length: Regular research papers, Experiments and Analyses papers, and 
System and Application papers have a page limit of 12 pages (including 
references and appendices).

File type: Each research paper is to be submitted as a single PDF file, 
formatted for A4 paper and no more than 5 MB in file size. Submitted 
papers must print without difficulty on a variety of printers, using 
Adobe Acrobat Reader. It is the responsibility of the authors to ensure 
that their submitted PDF file will print easily on simple default 

Formatting: Research papers must follow the ACM Proceedings Format 
(available at https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template). 
Please make sure you are using the latest 2017 version. Modified ACM 
LaTeX2e style files with ISBN and copyright information for EDBT 2019 
can be downloaded from the call for paper webpage: 
http://edbticdt2019.inesc-id.pt/?EDBT_CFP (Note: to test the EDBT 2019 
style files, make sure you place them in the same directory where you 
extracted the standard ACM Proceedings Format). The font size, margins, 
inter-column spacing, and line spacing in the templates must be kept 

Any submitted paper violating the length, file type, or formatting 
requirements will be rejected without review.
