Vienna, Austria, 23 September 2007
VLDB'07 (Very Large Data Bases, http://www.vldb.org/) is the 33th Conference in the series: It is one of the top conferences on the management of data bases in the world.
Since the mid nineties and the emergence of Grids, many research activities have been initiated in relation to data management in these dynamic, heterogeneous and cross-organizational environments. The database community can offer her unique expertise in the management of very large, widely distributed databases. Conversely, Grids offer a novel and very exciting field of research for database scientists both in terms of application domains and fundamental research.
This workshop is intended to bring together these two communities, and thus to offer a unique workspace for researchers to discuss and exchange ideas about the emerging challenges and opportunities offered by Data Grids.
Relevant topics for the workshop include all aspects related to the management of data in a Grid (non-exhaustive list) :
- Data Access
- Data Interoperability
- Semantic Grids
- Mediation / Negotiation
- Security: access control, policy, privacy
- Authenticity and integrity
- Data Placement: replication, migration
- Data Streams
- Metadata Management
- Query processing
- Data Warehouses
- Unique identification of data entities
- Data Definition/Model Management
- Data De-identification
- Data scheduler and data-aware scheduling
- Information sharing
- Information dissemination
- Infrastructure independence for data management
- Federation of data management systems
- Applications dealing with large databases
Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered for publication elsewhere.
Manuscripts should be submitted electronically as PDF or PS files via email to : pierson at irit.fr
Research papers should not exceed 10 pages in length.
They should be formatted using the camera-ready templates of Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html).
At least one author is required to register for the workshop and present the work. Registration is done via the VLDB registration site.
The proceedings of the 1st workshop in 2005 were published by LNCS, and a selection of the best papers of the 2nd edition in 2006 is published by Wiley in the Journal 'Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience'.
In 2007, a selection of the best papers will also be published by Wiley in the Journal 'Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience'.
Submission deadline: 30 May 2007. Authors can contact the Program Chair if they have problems to reach this deadline.
Acceptance notification: 30 June 2007
Final paper due: 22 July 2007
Workshop date: 23 September 2007
