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
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
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
