Call for Papers

Following the main themes of the EDBT conference, data management constitutes the essential enabling technology for scientific, engineering, business, and social communities. Peer-to-peer architectures, the Grid, personal information systems, pervasive and ubiquitous computing, networked sensors, biomedical informatics, virtual digital libraries, semantic virtual communities, database services and trust management are examples of the great challenges that drive research and development of the next generation of database technology. Our belief is that XML is the main means towards this new generation of data management systems. Following the experience of previous editions of DataX, in DataX 2009 we will discuss new and interesting applications, and the integration of XML and database technologies.

The goal of the workshop is to bring together academics, practitioners, users and vendors to discuss recent achievements, relevant problems and open issues on the boundary of database and XML technologies in all these environments. The workshop will provide the opportunity to debate new issues and outline directions for research and development.


We invite contributions from researchers and practitioners. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Paper Submission

Workshop submissions must be in electronic form using Portable Document Format (.pdf), or PostScript (.ps). Papers should not be more than 8 pages in length. Papers should be formatted according to the ACM proceedings format, using one of the templates listed at the ACM SIG Proceedings Templates web site (
All submitted papers will be judged on their quality and relevance. At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the workshop to present their work.

Submission web site is now open!

Paper Publication

Accepted papers will be included on the same memory stick with EDBT proceedings. This will give great visibility to the accepted paper. Post-workshop proceedings of the revised papers (namely accepted papers presented at the workshop integrated with reviewers' and workshop participants' comments) will be published by ACM Digital Libraries.
