3rd International Workshop on Self-Managing Database Systems (SMDB 2008)
7 April 2008, Cancun, Mexico

Sponsored by the

IEEE Data Engineering Workgroup on Self-Managing Databases

In conjunction with the
24th International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE 2008)

7-12 April 2008

Information management systems are growing rapidly in scale and complexity, while skilled database administrators are becoming rarer and more expensive. Increasingly, the total cost of ownership of information management systems is dominated by the cost of people, rather than hardware or software costs. This economic dynamic dictates that information systems of the future be more automated and simpler to use, with most administration tasks transparent to the user.

The aim of this workshop is to exchange ideas related to autonomic, or self-managing, information systems in an intimate, informal, and interactive environment. The format of the workshop will be a one-day workshop on the first day of ICDE, in which accepted papers will be presented in a single track and discussed by all participants. Workshop participants are encouraged to submit original research contributions or experience reports of previously unpublished work for presentation at the workshop. Participation in the workshop will not be limited to those whose papers are accepted. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to, the following:


      Fundamentals and principles of self-managing information systems

      Architectures for self-managing information systems

      Adaptive query tuning

      Self-diagnosing / self-healing databases

      Self-protecting databases

      Automated provisioning of resources

      Automated data integration

      Automatic enforcement of information quality

      Self-managing distributed / decentralized / peer-to-peer information systems

      Evaluation criteria and benchmarks for self-managing database systems

      Policy automation for database administration

      Data models for self-managing systems

      Self-organizing databases

      Automated discovery of data semantics

      User acceptance and trust of self-managing features

Submission Guidelines:

Authors are invited to submit original research contributions in English of up to six pages in camera-ready format. The format of the electronic copy can be Postscript, Word, or PDF. Detailed formatting instructions and LaTeX macros are available on the IEEE Computer Society sites: 8.5x11%20-%20Formatting%20files

Only electronic submissions will be accepted. Authors are required to submit papers to: .

Authors of accepted papers will be strongly encouraged to submit a full paper of at most 10 pages for final publication. All papers accepted by the workshop will appear in the formal Proceedings of the Conference Workshops published by IEEE CS Press, and thus will be included in the digital library of IEEE CS.
