16th International Database Engineering & Applications Symposium
Charles University Prague
August 8-10, 2012



Call For Papers/Participation, Tracks, Workshops


The aim of the IDEAS series of symposiums is to address the engineering and application aspects of databases. IDEAS series of symposiums are scheduled annually and have been held since 1997 in North America, Europe and Asia and has attracted participants from governmental and non-governmental agencies, industries, and academia.


IDEAS'12 invites quality papers describing original research ideas and new findings on technological and theoretical aspects of database engineering and applications. In particular, we welcome submissions describing work on integrating new technologies into products and applications, on experiences with existing and novel techniques, and on the identification of unsolved challenges. We consider this symposium to be an important forum to discuss experiences in applying databases to actual situations. Authors are invited to submit papers in English, reporting recent research in the area of databases, applications, experience in related fields. While research papers should report original research work, experience and application papers should describe the development and operations of challenging database related systems and applications.


The symposium plans to have focused sessions in the following areas:


  • Core Databases Technology
  • Query processing and optimization
  • Database and XML
  • Data models and languages
  • Data quality, integration, exchange and warehousing
  • Knowledge Discovery, Data and Process mining
  • Databases for e-commerce, e-g overnance and other e-applications
  • Bio-medical, life science and medical databases
  • Privacy and security issues
  • Semantic Web and Web 2.0 vs databases
  • P2P and Networked Data Management
  • Stream Databases
  • Emerging database technologies


Conference Publication


The conference proceedings will be published by BytePress/ACM and would be added to ACM's Digital Library. All submissions would also be invited to publish their papers in the CINDI Digital Library. The extended versions of accepted papers would also be invited for publication in the inaugural issue of the C3S2E on line journal.
