The 4th International Workshop on Ranking in Databases
DBRank 2010
In Conjunction with ICDE 2010
March 1st, 2010, Long Beach, California, US

Paper Submission Deadline: November 20, 2009

Following the success of DBRank 2007, 2008, and 2010 this year DBRank
will again be held in conjunction with ICDE 2010.

The Fourth International Workshop on Ranking in Databases (DBRank
2010) focuses on the semantics, the modeling and the implementation of
ranking and ordering in database systems and applications. In recent
years, there has been a great deal of interest in developing effective
techniques for ad-hoc search and retrieval in relational XML
databases, text and multimedia databases, scientific information
systems, biological databases, and so on. In particular, a large
number of emerging applications require exploratory querying on such
general-purpose or domain-specific databases; examples include users
wishing to search bibliographic databases or catalogs of products such
as homes, cars, cameras, restaurants, photographs, etc. To address the
limitations of the traditional Boolean retrieval model in these
emerging ad-hoc search and retrieval applications, Top-k queries and
ranking query results are gaining increasing importance. In fact, in
many of these applications, ranking is an integral part of the
semantics, e.g., keyword search, similarity search in multimedia as
well as document databases. The increasing importance of ranking is
directly derived from the explosion in the volume of data handled by
current applications. The user would be overwhelmed by too many
unranked results. Furthermore, the sheer amount of data makes it
almost impossible to process queries in the traditional
compute-then-sort approach. Hence, ranking comes as a great tool for
soliciting user preferences and data exploration. Ranking imposes
several challenges for almost all data-centric systems.

Topics of interests include but are not limited to:

* Ranking relational data
* Rank-aware query processing and optimization
* New fundamental developments in top-k algorithms
* Cost-models for top-k algorithms and operators
* User preference specification and query languages
* Ranking in Web and XML databases
* Ranking in distributed and peer-to-peer databases
* Ranking as a data exploration tool
* Ranking queries in data streams and continuous monitoring systems
* Applications of ranking and top-k retrieval from databases
* Ranking multimedia data
* Domain-specific ranking
* Multidimensional data analysis using ranking tools
* Personalized ranking functions
* Learning user preferences and ranking functions
* Ranking and information extraction
