Conference Program Keynote Speakers

The 2024 edition of SEBD Conference will take place in Villasimius (Sardinia), Italy, at Tanka Village Resort from the 23rd to the 26th of June 2024. This is the 32th edition of the symposium, which is the major annual event of the Italian database research community at large (English is the official language of the conference). The symposium is thought as a gathering forum to meet, discuss and exchange experiences among all those, both in the academy and industry, who are interested in database systems and in all their broad range of applications.

SEBD 2024 conference will be located in Villasimius, Italy, at the VOI Tanka Village, by the crystal-clear sea of Simius beach. Villasimius is a highly renomated turistic village on the southern coast of Sardinia, the second largest island in the Mediterranean famous for its white-sand beaches and clean waters. The closest airport is Cagliari Elmas international airport, connected with non-stop passenger flights (including many low-cost flights) scheduled to 62 destinations in 16 countries.

SEBD 2024 invites research, industry, application contributions, and software demonstration submissions. Regular papers presenting original work are solicited. Moreover, discussion papers containing descriptions of results already published are also welcomed. There are three submission formats:

  • Regular papers (up to 12 pages + references). Original research works. Regular papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference
  • Discussion papers (up to 8 pages + references). Results and ideas of interest to the SEBD audience, including extended abstracts of recent authors’ publications, papers currently under submission, position papers, system and application descriptions, and presentations of preliminary results
  • Doctoral Consortium papers (up to 6-7 pages, including selected references). The papers should be singly authored by a Ph.D. student or a Ph.D. graduate who defended the thesis between September 2023 and February 2024; if accepted, it will be presented at the Doctoral Consortium session
Selection will be based on originality, clarity, and technical quality. Submissions of papers must be in English, in PDF format, and formatted following the new CEUR-ART 1-column style, which is the style requested for the camera-ready preparation (Overleaf template). Submission system: Microsoft CMT SEBD 2024 submission link.
For Doctoral Consortium contributions, please select the corresponding track. All accepted papers will be included in the proceedings, with Discussion Papers marked as such. Proceedings will be published on and indexed in Scopus. After acceptance, authors are required to re-submit the final PDF. No different format is allowed. All accepted papers are expected to be presented at the conference, and at least one author will be required to register for the conference. To accommodate a potentially large number of papers, PC chairs could accommodate poster sessions in addition to regular oral sessions. A booster session will introduce all poster presentations where the authors can pitch the contribution with a 1-2 minute presentation. Authors of accepted papers will be notified about the final decision on the presentation format. The SEBD 2024 Doctoral Consortiumi will take place in a dedicated session during the conference on Sunday, June 23, 2024. The goal is to provide a forum for Ph.D. candidates to present their ongoing research and receive feedback from renowned and experienced research community members. The Consortium fosters a collaborative environment, encouraging constructive discussions and sharing of ideas. It will be an excellent opportunity for developing person-to-person networks to the benefit of the Ph.D. students in their future careers – as well as of the community.

All accepted works will be included in the proceedings, with Discussion Papers clearly marked as such. Proceedings will be published on and indexed in Scopus, DBLP and Google Scholar. After acceptance, authors are required to re-submit the final PDF. No different format is allowed. All accepted papers are expected to be presented at the conference and at least one author is required to register to the conference.
