Call for Papers - DEXA 2011

22nd International Conference on Database and Expert Systems Applications - DEXA 2011

Toulouse, France

August 29 - September 2, 2011

Information systems and database systems have always been a central topic of computer science. In addition, the integration of knowledge, information and data justifies its actual attractiveness. Since 1990 DEXA is an annual international conference, located in Europe, which showcases state-of-the-art research activities in these areas.

DEXA 2011 will be held in Toulouse, France from August 29 until September 2, 2011. It will continue to provide a forum for presenting research results in the area of database and intelligent systems and discussions on advanced applications and issues related to these areas. It will offer the opportunity to extensively discuss requirements, problems, and solutions in the field. The conference and associated workshops will inspire a fruitful dialogue between developers in practice, users of database and expert systems, and scientists working in the field.

Paper Submission Details

Authors are invited to electronically submit original research contributions or experience reports in English.

  • The submitted manuscript should closely reflect the final paper as it will appear in the Proceedings.
  • The submitted manuscript must be submitted in pdf in LNCS format (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html)
  • The length of submitted manuscripts should not exceed 15 pages.
  • Any submission that significantly exceeds length limits or deviates from formatting requirements may be rejected without review.

For paper registration and electronic submission see http://confdriver.ifs.tuwien.ac.at/dexa2011/

Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of
exposition.

Duplicate submissions are not allowed. Authors are expected to agree to the following terms: "I understand that the
paper being submitted must not overlap substantially with any other paper that I am a co-author of and that is currently
submitted elsewhere. Furthermore, previously published papers with any overlap are cited prominently in this
submission."

Duplicate submissions will be rejected immediately without review. Questions about this policy or how it applies to your work should be directed to the PC-chairs.

ACCEPTED PAPERS:

All accepted conference papers will be published in a volume of "Lecture Notes in Computer Science" (LNCS) by Springer Verlag.

DEXA reservers the right to accept papers only as short papers (up to 8 pages). Short papers will tend to be descriptions of interesting, innovative ideas, which nevertheless require more work to mature. Authors of all accepted papers must sign a Springer copyright release form.
