Call for Papers

The aim of the IDEAS series of symposiums is to address the engineering and application aspects of databases.

The symposium provides an international forum for discussion of the problems of engineering database systems involving not only database technology but the related areas of information retrieval, multimedia, human machine interface and communication. The goal of IDEAS is to foster closer interaction among the industrial, research and user communities and provide an excellent opportunity for them to meet, discuss ideas, examine the current ones and develop new solutions and research directions. Along with the technical sessions, the symposium also features prominent invited speakers. We invite participants from academia, computer and user industries, and government to share ideas and experiences.

IDEAS'01 is hosted by Grenoble University (l'Université Joseph Fourier) and organised by the Database Groups at Grenoble and Concordia University and is sponsored by IDEAS, IMAG, Concordia and Grenoble University with the cooperation of IEEE Computer Society.

IDEAS'01 invites quality original papers describing innovative ideas and new findings on system oriented, technological and theoretical aspects of database engineering and applications. In particular we welcome submissions describing work on integrating new technologies into products and applications, on experiences with existing and novel techniques, and on the identification of unsolved challenges.

Original papers of approximately 5,000 words are invited. The primary focus is on high-quality original unpublished research, case studies and implementation experiences. For demos, a 1000 word extended abstract should be sent. Papers on implemented systems, from research prototypes to advanced industrial research projects and development are of particular interest. The proceedings will be published by IEEE.
