SBBD is the official event sponsored by SBC (the Brazilian Computer Society) in the area of databases and the largest venue in Latin America for the presentation and discussion of research results on databases. It gathers researchers, students and practitioners, from Brazil and abroad, to discuss problems related to the main topics in this domain. Besides technical sessions and tutorials, the Symposium also includes invited talks given by distinguished speakers from the international research community.

In past editions, SBBD has been organized in cooperation with ACM/SIGMOD and partially sponsored by the VLDB Endowment. In its 24rd edition, the Symposium will be held in Foratleza, in the State of Ceará, on October 05-07. SBBD is expected to gather around 1000 attendees in the 2009 edition, following the participation trend from previous years.

Besides regular paper submissions, SBBD 2009 also invites submissions of posters to foster interaction on hot topics and ongoing work. The goal of the Poster session is to provide an interactive opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present their new and innovative work-in-progress and to obtain feedback from their peers in an informal way. It also gives conference attendees an opportunity to learn about novel on-going research projects that might not yet be complete, but whose preliminary results are already relevant.

In this edition, a certificate will be given to "The Best Poster of SBBD 2009". Such poster will be chosen by a special committee that will evaluate all posters during the SBBD 2009 Poster Session.
