We accept papers authored by students, PhD students or young researchers.
We do not define any formal age restrictions for authors of contributions. However, in case
of borderline papers, i.e. papers balancing on the acceptance / rejection boundary,
preference will be given to the contributions whose authors are students or PhD students.
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 6 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
Papers should follow double-column format on A4 paper, using 10pt Times-Roman font.
In order to help you format your submissions, we have provided sample files for both LATEX and
