Dear participants of SYRCoDIS'05,

to prepare badges we need you personal information. Could you please email to syrcodis2005@ispras.ru the following information (in English):

  • Your name
  • Your organization
  • For students and Ph.D. students, name of your supervisor

For coauthored papers we also need the names of authors who will be making reports.

If anybody else is going to participate in SYRCoDIS without making a report, please ask them to provide us with this info.

For coauthored papers we also need the names of authors who will be making reports.

Thank you in advance!


SYRCoDIS is directed to young members of scientific research groups specializing in the area of databases and information systems. The goal of the colloquium is to help young researchers to get familiar with the work of their colleagues, to exchange the experiences and to practice in delivering reports on international conferences. The colloquium is organized by Russian professors from Moscow, Saint-Petersburg and Tchelyabinsk state universities and Russian Academy of Sciences and is encouraged by scientists from other Russian and European universities. The role of older professors during SYRCoDIS is not to teach students but to listen oral presentations of younger researchers, discuss their results, and to advise them about improving their work and future conference papers.

Topics of Interest

We are interested in original papers dealing with both theory and/or applications of database technology and information systems. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Database theory
  • Core database technologies
  • Indexing techniques
  • XML and semistructured databases
  • Mobile information systems
  • Temporal databases
  • Data mining
  • New trends in information system design
  • Data integration
  • Functional techniques for data management
  • Parallel and distributed databases
  • Information retrieval
  • Machine learning
  • Multimedia databases
  • Multidimensional databases


We accept papers authored by students, PhD students and young researchers not more than 30 years old. Researchers not matching this age limit are allowed as co-authors provided that the report is presented by young author. Papers must be written and presented in English.

We admit original papers of the following types:

  • Research-in-progress reports which should contain an abstract describing the problem of interest and particular goals of research, a short description of related works of other researches with analysis of differences between the existing methods and ones proposed by the author, a summary of results achieved and future work. Normally, such papers should be solely authored (although the scientific supervisor should be specified). The length of such papers should not exceed 4 pages.

  • Full papers presenting the accomplished research up to 12 pages length. Such papers do not have limits on co-authors except that at least one of co-authors is a young researcher making a presentation on colloquium.

Every paper will be reviewed by at least three members of the Program Commitee and authors will get the reviews together with the notification of acceptance/rejection.

Papers must be formatted two columns to a page on A4 format paper. Use 10-point type in a clear, readable font (Times-Roman or equivalent). In order to help you format your submissions, we have provided sample files for both LATEX and Microsoft Word users:

To submit a paper, please send it as attachement at syrcodis2005@ispras.ru
