VLDB 2008 is a premier annual international forum for database researchers, vendors, practitioners, application developers, and users. VLDB 2008, the 34th conference in the series, will be held in Auckland, New Zealand. The conference will feature research talks, tutorials, demonstrations, and workshops. It will cover current issues in database and information systems research. Databases remain one of the technological cornerstones of emerging applications of the twenty-first century. New Zealand is, like its neighbour Australia, highly active in this area in both research and industry and is supported by strong international links. The VLDB delegates who will convene in downtown Auckland will experience a vibrant metropolitan area with one of the highest living standards in the world, fast-growing business activity in high-tech areas and a very rich international research culture. The affordable price level and the excellent flight connections will make New Zealand an unforgettable VLDB experience - not to mention that all this comes with the great outdoors and the easygoing lifestyle in New Zealand. The University of Auckland is looking forward to your visit.

VLDB 2008 calls for outstanding research papers as well as proposals for demonstrations. Tutorial proposals on all topics that will be of particular interest for the community are welcome. VLDB 2008 also strongly encourages the submission of workshop proposals on challenging topics in areas related to the VLDB focus.

Papers must be submitted electronically. Please check this website regularly for updated information on the paper submission procedure.

To continue the policy of broadening the range of topics covered at the conference, VLDB 2008 will be organized into three tracks, each with its own Program Committee:

  • Core Database Technology
  • Infrastructure for Information Systems
  • Industrial, Applications, and Experience

Topics of Interest

The Core Database Technology Track will evaluate papers on technologies intended to be incorporated within the database system itself. The topics of interest to this track include (but are not limited to):

  • Active Databases
  • Benchmarking and Performance
  • Concurrency Control and Recovery
  • Data Models and Languages
  • Database Administration and Manageability
  • Database Indexing and Search
  • Database Performance and Evaluation
  • Embedded and Mobile Databases
  • Engine-based Views, Replication, and Caching
  • Fuzzy, Probabilistic, and Approximate Data
  • Image, Text, and Multimedia Databases
  • Native Semi-Structured Data and XML
  • Parallel, Distributed, and Grid Databases
  • Private and Secure Databases
  • Query Processing and Optimization
  • Real-Time Databases
  • Reliable and Robust Databases
  • Spatial and Temporal Databases
  • Stream Databases

The Information Infrastructure Track covers all aspects of data management not implemented within a conventional database engine. The topics covered by this track include (but are not limited to):

  • Content Delivery Networks
  • Database Services and Applications
  • Data Design, Evolution and Migration
  • Data Management in Computational Science
  • Data Mining
  • Data Quality and Semantics
  • Heterogeneous and Federated DBMS (Interoperability)
  • Information Filtering and Dissemination
  • Information Integration and Retrieval
  • Meta-data Management
  • Middleware Platforms for Data Management
  • Mobile Data Management
  • Novel/Advanced Applications
  • On-Line Analytic Processing
  • P2P and Networked Data Management
  • Profile-based Data Management
  • Scientific Databases
  • Sensor Networks
  • User Interfaces and Visualization
  • Web Replication and Caching
  • Web Services and Web Service Composition
  • XML Middleware Platforms

The Industrial, Applications, and Experience Track covers innovative commercial database implementations, novel applications of database technology, and experience in applying recent research advances to practical situations, in any of the following example areas (or, in other areas where data management is important):

  • Adapting DB Technology to Industrial Settings and Requirements
  • Application Areas (Government, Finance, Humanities, Telecommunications, Home and Personal Computing, ...)
  • Bio-Informatics/Life Sciences
  • Business Process Engineering and Execution Support
  • Data Management for Developing Countries
  • Digital Libraries/Document Management
  • Electronic Commerce
  • Engineering Information Systems
  • Enterprise Data Management
  • Enterprise Resource Planning
  • Environmental Management
  • Experiences in Using DB Technology
  • Geographic Information Systems
  • Industrial-Strength Systems based on DB Technology
  • Mobile Computing
  • Medical Systems
  • Reporting of Pitfalls and Difficulties
  • Retail Systems
  • Self-Managing Systems
  • System Design and Implementation using DB Technology

In some cases, material might cut across more than one of the tracks, and indeed we strongly encourage papers that pursue some of the ties between them. As submissions will be judged by their appropriateness for the track in which they are being evaluated, appropriate placement of papers is important. If in doubt, please contact one of the PC chairs. The program committee reserves the right to move papers between the PCs to ensure the fairest possible evaluation.
