is a systems-oriented conference, complementary
in its mission to the mainstream database conferences
like SIGMOD or VLDB, by emphasizing the system
architecture perspective rather than mathematical
models or algorithmic methods for highly specific
issues. Papers are invited on innovative and
visionary approaches to data systems architecture.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited
to: database systems, storage management, scalability
and dependability, new architectures for business
intelligence, personal information spaces, ambient
and embedded databases, network services, user
interfaces for data-intensive systems, Web data
and Deep Web, information integration and data
cleaning architectures, DB&IR integration,
data management for e-science, data management
in sensor networks, peer-to-peer data management,
self-managing systems, benchmarking and experimental
The conference will be single-tracked. Proceedings
will be published both as a website and on CD-ROM.
The conference will run every-other year, typically
in the fall or winter during non-HTPS years.
