*** Sixth Call for Papers ***

21st European Conference on Advances in Databases
and Information Systems

ADBIS 2017

Hilton Cyprus, Nicosia, Cyprus

24 - 27 September, 2017

*** Submission Deadline: 17 April 2017 (extended) ***

The main objective of the ADBIS series of conferences is to provide a forum
for the dissemination of research accomplishments and to promote
interaction and collaboration between the database and information system
research communities from 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 will consist of regular sessions with technical contributions
(regular papers, short papers) reviewed and selected by an international
program committee, as well as of invited talks and tutorials presented by
leading scientists. The official language of the conference will be English. A
Doctoral Consortium and different Workshops will be held in line with the
main conference.


We invite original papers describing results that broadly belong to both
theory and practice of databases and information systems. The list of
specific topics of interest follows, with a note that it is not exhaustive and
we welcome novel results addressing topics not included in the list.
