The 9th International SSDBM Conference will bring together database researchers, practitioners, and developers, as well as domain scientists from multiple scientific disciplines to explore new concepts, tools, and techniques for scientific and statistical database applications. It will provide a forum for original research contributions and practical system design, implementation, and evaluation. The conference will feature keynote talks, panel sessions, and demonstrations of research prototypes and industrial systems. It will continue the tradition of past SSDBM meetings in providing a stimulating environment to encourage discussion and the exchange of ideas in a quiet setting.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
Scientific DBs Statistical DBs __________________________________________________ System Architectures System Architectures Data/Process Models Data Models User Interfaces User Interfaces Data Visualization Data Visualization Query Processing Query Processing Data Compression Data Compression Tertiary Storage Tertiary Storage Data Mining Data Mining Metadata Management Metadata Management Uncertainty Management Knowledge-based Methods Collaborative Work Data Cube Operations Data Integration View Materialization Multi-media Data Temporal/Spatial Data Experiment Management
Of particular interest are results that address issues arising in pro- viding database support to specific scientific disciplines or statist- ical application areas, such as those below:
Scientific Disciplines Statistical Application Areas _________________________________________________________________ Biological Sciences Biostatistics Chemistry Census Databases Earth and Space Sciences Decision Support Engineering Economics and Finance Geography Enterprise Analysis Medicine Environmental Epidemiology Physics On-Line Analytical Processing (OLAP) Social Sciences
To increase the synergy between database researchers and domain scientists, SSDBM-97 invites two separate types of papers.
Submitted papers should be clearly marked on the front page by the appropriate category for which they are intended. The Program Committee may, at its discretion, switch papers that are deemed more appropriate for the other category.
In addition to papers, SSDBM-97 invites proposals for panels, as well as prototypes for demonstration at the conference.
