Call for Papers DBPL 2017

Alexander Alexandrov
The 16th International Symposium on Database Programming Languages

The 16th International Symposium on Database Programming Languages (DBPL 2017) will be held in conjunction with VLDB 2017 on September 1st, 2017 in Munich, Germany.

General Information

DBPL is a biennial symposium that aims to foster exchange of ideas and discussion about current trends and open problems between the data management and the programming languages research communities. For over 30 years, DBPL has established itself as the principal venue for publishing and discussing new ideas and problems at the intersection of data management and programming languages. Many key contributions relevant to the formal foundations, design,implementation, and evaluation of query languages (e.g., for object-oriented, nested, or semi-structured data) were first announced at DBPL.

As an established destination for such new ideas, DBPL aims to solicit submissions from researchers in databases, programming languages or any other community interested in the design, implementation or foundations of languages and systems for data-centric computation. Our main goal is to provide an inter-disciplinary venue where current trends, open problems, as well as insights about research methodology for potential solutions can be shared and discussed between the two communities.

Topics of interest for submissions include:
  • Programming Abstractions and Type Systems for Data-Centric Batch or Stream Processing
  • Data-Centric Language Design
  • Data-Centric Language Semantics
  • Data-Centric Language Optimizations and Transformations
  • Data-Centric Language Compilation to Emerging Hardware or Software Platforms
  • Data Integration, Exchange, and Interoperability
  • Declarative Data Centers
  • Emerging and Nontraditional Data Models
  • Language-Based Security in Data Management
  • Language-Integrated Query Mechanisms
  • Managing Uncertain and Imprecise Information
  • Metaprogramming and Heterogeneous Staged Computation
  • Programming Language Support for Databases
  • Schema Mapping and Metadata Management
  • Semantics and Verification of Database Systems
  • Validation, Type-checking
Author Guidelines

Prospective authors are invited to submit full papers in English presenting original research. Submitted papers must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Submissions should be no more than 10 pages long in the ACM Proceedings Format format.

Each submission should begin with a succinct statement of the problem and a summary of the main results. Authors may provide more details to substantiate the main claims of the paper by including a clearly marked appendix at the end of the submission, which is not included in the page limit and is read at the discretion of the committee.

At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the symposium to present their work.

Short papers of at most 4 pages in the ACM Proceedings Format describing work in progress, demos, research challenges or visions are also welcome. Accepted short papers may be included or excluded from the formal proceedings, whichever the author(s) prefer.
Full and short papers are both due on the deadline, May 12, 2017. Abstracts of full papers should be submitted by May 5th to aid reviewer selection.
