Fifth East-European Conference on Advances in Databases and Information Systems

September 25-28, 2001, Vilnius, Lithuania

In co-operation with ACM SIGMOD, Moscow ACM SIGMOD Chapter

Aims and Scope

The main objective of the ADBIS conferences is to provide a forum for the dissemination of research accomplishments and promote interaction and collaboration between the Database and Information Systems research communities from Central and East European countries and the rest of the world. The ADBIS conferences provide an international platform for the presentation of research on database theory, development of advanced DBMS technologies, and their advanced applications.

The Conference continues the series of ADBIS conferences held in St. Petersburg (1997), Poznan (1998), Maribor (1999), and Prague (2000). The Conference will consist of regular sessions with technical contributions reviewed and selected by an international program committee, as well as of invited talks and tutorials given by leading scientists. The official language of the Conference will be English.

Topics

Original papers dealing with both theory and/or applications of database technology and information systems are solicited. The areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • database theory,
  • database systems,
  • database systems architectures (client-server architectures, parallel and distributed DB, interoperable DB, mobile DB, heterogenous DB, etc.),
  • advanced databases (object-oriented DB, web-based DB, multimedia DB, temporal and spatial DB, deductive and active DB, etc.),
  • data quality,
  • database and knowledge-base manage­ment systems and technology,
  • data modeling and database design,
  • advanced database applications,
  • database agents,
  • data mining, datawarehousing, and know­ledge discovery,
  • activity modelling, advanced transaction, and workflow management,
  • XML and databases,
  • e-business and e-commerce,
  • web-based and distributed information systems,
  • enterprise information systems,
  • advanced information systems (GIS, intelligent IS, component-based IS, etc.),
  • information systems, mobile computing, and agents,
  • knowledge management and information systems,
  • systems, information systems, and software systems engineering,
  • information system security.

Submission

We solicit contributions of the following form:

  • full research papers describing research accomplishment (approx. 5000 words),
  • short research papers that report interesting results and do not justify a full paper (2000 - 3000 words),
  • communications, i.e. experience reports, surveys, project overviews, etc. which do not fully adhere to the standards of a first rate scientific publication, but are nevertheless of interest and value for the participants of the conference,
  • proposals for tutorials and panels.

    Research papers shall be original contributions, not accepted or submitted elsewhere. Research papers will be published in the LNCS series of Springer Verlag. Communications papers will be included in additional proceedings.

    We can only accept electronic submissions in Postscript, PDF, or RTF format. Already at the submission stage,authors are encouraged to consider the final paper format requirements, as specified in http://www.science.mii.lt/ADBIS/authors.htm.

    Additionally, for each paper send a first page in ASCII (Text-format) containing title, authors, abstract and keywords.

    Papers shall be submitted to: adbis@ktl.mii.lt

    Awards

    The best paper authored solely by students will be awarded. Please indicate in your submission, whether it is a student paper. Furthermore, the authors of outstanding papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper for possible publication in a special section of the journal "Information Systems" (Pergamon Press).

    Conference Venue

    The Conference will be held at the Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (http://www.vtu.lt/english/vgtu/) in Vilnius, Lithuania. Lithuania (http://neris.mii.lt/) is a small, beautiful country lying on the south eastern coast of the Baltic Sea and inhabited by one of the Baltic nations. The Lithuanians have preserved one of the oldest language, a unique culture and unique customs. Vilnius (http://www.vilnius.sav.lt/tourism/) is the capital of Lithuania. It is a city that has to be explored. A day walking through the narrow, winding streets will give you a lot of impression. There is plenty to see. Masterpieces of local gothic, baroque and classicism, Gediminas Castle, folk art, museums, monuments of the former Soviet Empire, restful cafes, swinging bars, modern night clubs, handsome and imposing restaurants. The largest Old Town in Eastern Europe gives you the feeling that you are walking through a museum, for practically every building is a relic of a sort. 27 km from Vilnius lays the ancient capital of Lithuania Trakai (http://www.tourism.lt/region/vilnius/trakai.htm). The Trakai Castle, an original relic of the Middle Ages, has survived on one of the islands on the Galve Lake to this day. 100 km from Vilnius lays the Lithuania's second largest city Kaunas (http://www.kaunas.lt/english/). There is a number of interesting museums, such as the Ciurlionis Museum with an exposition of more than 200 canvases by the great Lithuanian artist M.K. Ciurlionis, the exposition of folk "devil" sculptures, and the IXth Fort Museum, a memorial to the victims of fascism.
