The Dutch-Belgian Database Day 2013 (DBDBD 2013)


The Dutch-Belgian Database Day 2013 (DBDBD 2013) will be held in Rotterdam, the Netherlands on November 29th, 2013. The Dutch-Belgian Database Day is a yearly one-day workshop organized by a Belgian or Dutch university, whose general topic is database research. DBDBD invites submissions (1 page abstract) on a broad range of database and database-related topics, including but not limited to data storage and management, theoretical database issues, database performance, data integration, data mining, data security, data search, ontologies, etc.

At the DBDBD, junior researchers from the Netherlands and Belgium can present their recent results, and meet senior researchers in the field of databases. It is an excellent opportunity to meet up with your Belgian/Dutch colleagues, and to get informed about the (recent) database-related research performed in Belgian/Dutch universities. The workshop is also open to non-Belgian/Dutch participants (presentations are in English), assuming that you can travel to the Benelux. The workshop consists of oral presentations. There are no printed proceedings. Abstracts of talks will be published on the workshop's website.

This year, DBDBD is organized by the Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) under auspices of SIKS, the Dutch research school for information and knowledge systems. DBDBD 2013 will be held at the World Trade Center in Rotterdam (the Netherlands), on Friday November 29th, 2013.
