The Sixth Spring Young Researchers Colloquium on Databases and Information Systems, SYRCoDIS'2009. May 28 - 29, St. Petersburg, Russia
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 and to exchange knowledge and experience.
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 the goal of increasing the collaboration between Russian and international database research communities. We are aiming to reach a broad international auditory including, in the first place, PhD students from other countries. International participants are welcome to submit their work.
We solicit contributions of three types: full research papers, research-in-progress reports and industrial papers. We hope to bring researchers and practitioners together at the forum and thus reduce the ever-existing gap between theory and practice in database systems.
Previous SYRCoDIS colloquiums were held in Saint-Petersburg (May, 2004; June, 2005; May, 2008) and Moscow (June, 2006; May-June, 2007). Program committee selected reports covering such fields of database and information systems research as XML databases, information retrieval and data mining, query processing, model-driven approach etc. The main SYRCoDIS Web sites can be found at http://syrcodis.ispras.ru.

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.

The colloquium will be held in Saint-Petersburg - the second largest city in Russia and one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Saint-Petersburg is sometimes referred to in Russia as "the Northern Capital". A former capital of Russia, the city offers a wide range of tourist attractions - numerous palaces, museums (including the celebrated Hermitage), theaters (among them is the world-renowned Mariinsky Theatre), restaurants, shops. The Innovation Technologies Center of the Saint-Petersburg State University which will host the event is located in Vasilievsky island - a famous architectural and sculptural masterpiece of the city. May is the beginning of the peak tourist season. At this timer of year local weather is usually fine which allows for long walks during the day. Moreover, this is the time of beautiful White Nights, when there is enough daylight even in the middle of the night, so the most active tourists can extend their daily activities on the streets of the city without being frustrated by the darkness.Contacts
