CALL FOR PAPERS
The Fourth Spring Young Researchers Colloquium on Databases and Information Systems, SYRCoDIS'2007.

May 31 - June 1, Moscow, Russia

Introduction

SYRCoDIS is an annual colloquium directed to young researchers specializing in the area of databases and information systems. The goal of the colloquium is to help young researchers to get acquainted with the work of their colleagues, to exchange experiences and to practice in delivering reports at international conferences.

In recent years SYRCoDIS has become the major annual meeting of the Russian research community in the database field. We believe that it should also serve to increase the collaboration between Russian and international database research communities. For this, we are aiming to reach a broad international auditory including, in the first place, PhD students from other countries. International participants are warmly welcome.

In order to establish strong links with database industry, we have decided to allow for submission not only research but also industrial papers which demonstrate non-trivial applications of database systems. We hope that having researchers and practitioners together at the forum will contribute to narrowing the ever-existing gap between theory and practice and increase researchers’ and practitioners’ awareness of the developments made by either community and problems each community is facing.

Previous SYRCoDIS colloquiums were held in Saint-Petersburg (May, 2004; June, 2005) and Moscow (June, 2006). Program committee selected reports covering such fields of database and information systems research as XML databases, information retrieval and data mining, query processing, MDA, etc. The Web sites of the previous SYRCoDIS colloquiums can be found at the main SYRCoDIS Web Site.

Topics Of Interest

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

  • Database Theory
  • Data Integration
  • Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery
  • Data Streams and Publish-Subscribe Systems
  • Data Structures
  • Indexing Techniques
  • Information Retrieval
  • Mobile Information Systems
  • Multimedia Databases
  • New Trends in Information System Design
  • Parallel and Distributed Databases
  • Query Processing and Optimization
  • Real-Time Databases
  • Replication, Caching and Materialization
  • Scientific and Statistical Databases
  • Security and Privacy
  • Semantic Web
  • Spatial and Temporal Databases
  • Transaction Management
  • Web Information and Services
  • XML and Semistructured Databases

Submission

We accept papers authored by students, PhD students or young researchers up to 30 years old. Researchers over this age limit are allowed as co-authors provided that the report is presented by a young author. Papers must be written and presented in English.

We admit original papers of the following types:

  • Full research 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 the co-authors is a young researcher making a presentation at the colloquium.
  • Research-in-progress reports which should contain an abstract describing the problem of interest and the particular goals of the research, a short description of related work of other researchers with analysis of differences between the existing methods and the 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.
  • Industrial papers demonstrating novel or non-trivial applications of database systems. Like full research papers, industrial papers should meet the requirement that at least one of the co-authors is a young person making a presentation at the colloquium.

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

Papers should follow double-column format on A4 paper, using 10pt Times-Roman font. Sample files are available on the colloquium web page. Papers should be submitted electronically via the Submission and Review System.

Conference Venue

Moscow is the capital of Russian Federation and the most populous city in Europe. It is a city with very long history dating back to 12th century. The city was the residence of Russian Tsars before the first Emperor Peter I moved the capital to Saint-Petersburg, and has been serving as the capital since Soviet times. Moscow has many historical attractions, numerous architectural monuments, theatres, museums, restorans and other places for active cultural life. Among them the Kremlin, the place where the Russian state was formed, which is the current residence of Russian government; Bolshoi theatre with many world celebrities of opera and ballet; Tretyakov gallery which is the national treasure of Russian fine art.

The colloquium will be hosted by Moscow State University which is arguably the oldest university in Russia and a recognized academic institution in the world. It will take place in the modern building of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics Department where many famous Russian professors are doing world-class research in various areas of modern mathematics and computer science.
