Call For Papers

The Sixth Spring Young Researchers Colloquium on
Databases and Information Systems, SYRCoDIS'2009. May 28 - 29, St. Petersburg,

SYRCoDIS is an annual colloquium directed to young researchers
specializing in the area of databases and information systems. The goal of the
colloquium is to help young researchers to get acquainted with the work of their
colleagues and to exchange knowledge and experience.
In recent years SYRCoDIS has become the major annual meeting of
the Russian research community in the database field. We believe that it should
also serve the goal of increasing the collaboration between Russian and
international database research communities. We are aiming to reach a broad
international auditory including, in the first place, PhD students from other
countries. International participants are welcome to submit their work.
We solicit contributions of three types: full research papers,
research-in-progress reports and industrial papers. We hope to bring researchers
and practitioners together at the forum and thus reduce the ever-existing gap
between theory and practice in database systems.
Previous SYRCoDIS colloquiums were held in Saint-Petersburg
(May, 2004; June, 2005; May, 2008) and Moscow (June, 2006; May-June, 2007).
Program committee selected reports covering such fields of database and
information systems research as XML databases, information retrieval and data
mining, query processing, model-driven approach etc. The main SYRCoDIS Web sites
can be found at
Topics Of Interest
We are interested in original papers dealing with theory and/or
applications of database technology and information systems. The topics of
interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Database Theory
Data Integration
Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery
Data Streams and Publish-Subscribe Systems
Data Structures
Indexing Techniques
Information Retrieval
Mobile Information Systems
Multimedia Databases
New Trends in Information System Design
Parallel and Distributed Databases
Query Processing and Optimization
Real-Time Databases
Replication, Caching and Materialization
Scientific and Statistical Databases
Security and Privacy
Semantic Web
Spatial and Temporal Databases
Transaction Management
Web Information and Services
XML and Semistructured Databases
We accept papers authored by students, PhD students or young
researchers. We do not define any formal age restrictions for authors of
contributions. However, in case of borderline papers, i.e. papers balancing on
the acceptance / rejection boundary, preference will be given to the
contributions whose authors are students or PhD students. Papers must be written
and presented in English.
We admit original papers of the following types:

Full research papers presenting the accomplished research
up to 12 pages length. Such papers do not have limits on co-authors except
that at least one of the co-authors is a young researcher making a
presentation at the colloquium.
Research-in-progress reports which should contain an
abstract describing the problem of interest and the particular goals of the
research, a short description of related work of other researchers with
analysis of differences between the existing methods and the ones proposed by
the author, a summary of results achieved and future work. Normally, such
papers should be solely authored (although the scientific supervisor should be
specified). The length of such papers should not exceed 6 pages.
Industrial papers demonstrating novel or non-trivial
applications of database systems. Like full research papers, industrial papers
should meet the requirement that at least one of the co-authors is a young
person making a presentation at the colloquium.
Every paper regardless of its type will be reviewed by at least
three members of the Program Committee and authors will get the reviews together
with the notification of acceptance/rejection.
Papers should follow double-column format on A4 paper, using
10pt Times-Roman font. Sample files are available on the colloquium web page.
Papers should be submitted electronically via the Submission and Review

Conference Venue

The colloquium will be held in Saint-Petersburg - the second
largest city in Russia and one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.
Saint-Petersburg is sometimes referred to in Russia as "the Northern Capital". A
former capital of Russia, the city offers a wide range of tourist attractions -
numerous palaces, museums (including the celebrated Hermitage), theaters (among
them is the world-renowned Mariinsky Theatre), restaurants, shops. The
Innovation Technologies Center of the Saint-Petersburg State University which
will host the event is located in Vasilievsky island - a famous architectural
and sculptural masterpiece of the city. May is the beginning of the peak tourist
season. At this timer of year local weather is usually fine which allows for
long walks during the day. Moreover, this is the time of beautiful White Nights,
when there is enough daylight even in the middle of the night, so the most
active tourists can extend their daily activities on the streets of the city
without being frustrated by the darkness.
