24th Brazilian Symposium on Databases

Promoted by the Brazilian Computer Society

Fortaleza - Brazil
October 05-09, 2009

Important Dates

Tutorial submission: June 1, 2009
Notification of acceptance: July 9, 2009
Abstracts for proceedings: July 31, 2009


SBBD is the official database event of the Brazilian Computer Society (SBBD). It has been the largest venue in Latin America for presentation and discussion of research results in the database domain. In its 24th edition, the symposium will be held in Fortaleza, Ceará, between October 5-9. SBBD joins researchers, students and practitioners, from Brazil and abroad, for discussing problems related to the main topics in modern database technologies. Traditionally, SBBD has gathered nearly 500 attendees. In past editions, SBBD has been organized in cooperation with ACM/SIGMOD and partially sponsored by the VLDB Endowment.

SBBD 2009 invites submissions of tutorial proposals. Each tutorial will be presented in a 3 hours session. Only an abstract (1-2 pages) of the accepted tutorials, including bibliographic references will be published in the symposium proceedings. However, copies of the presentation slides will be also required before the event for distribution to the tutorial attendees.

We will consider proposals for introductory and advanced tutorials on any topic within the area of databases. Introductory tutorials should target an audience consisting of advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as well as attendees from industry. Hence, they can be thought of as "recycling" courses though they should not be about traditional "textbook" topics. Advanced tutorials, on the other hand, must cover a topic's state-of-the-art, motivating and exposing potential research issues.
