Manuscript Categories

For the QDB 2011 edition of the workshop,in addition to regular research papers, we would like to promote the presentations of research-in-progress papers and posters. For this reason, we propose three categories for submission:

  • research papers (should not exceed 10 pages)
  • overview/survey papers (should not exceed 10 pages)
  • short papers (up to 6 pages)
  • posters (up to 3 pages)

In line with our main intent for fruitful discussions and exchanges, in addition to previously unpublished material that can be submitted in any of the above formats, the program committee welcomes short paper submissions and posters that include ideas and material that may have appeared elsewhere, insofar as they are judged to be a sound and valuable contribution to the discussion. Papers to be included in the QDB workshop's research sessions will be reviewed by at least three people from the program committee.

Manuscript Format and Requirements

The papers have to be formatted according the VDLB formatting guidelines (see but abide by the page limits set in this call and there is no 8+4 rule). All papers must be submitted in PDF. Please ensure that any special fonts used are included in the submitted documents. It is essential that the submitted papers print without difficulty on a variety of printers using Adobe Acrobat Reader. Accepted papers will be included in the VLDB proceedings as long as they follow the formatting guidelines.

In case of paper acceptance, the authors agree that at least one of them will register for the workshop and present the paper.

Manuscript Submission

Papers and poster abstracts have to be submitted in PDF via the Conference Management System.
