                       Seattle, Washington, USA
                           August 29, 2011

                           Call for Papers

For over 20 years, DBPL has established itself as the principal venue
for publishing and discussing new ideas at the intersection of
databases and programming languages. Many key contributions in query
languages for object-oriented data, persistent databases, nested
relational data, semistructured data, as well as fundamental ideas in
types for query languages were first announced at DBPL. Today, the
emergence of new data management applications such as Semantic Web and
Web services, XML processing, Social and Sensor Networks, Cloud
Computing and Peer-to-peer data management has lead to a new flurry of
creative research in this area. DBPL is an established destination for
such new ideas.


DBPL solicits theoretical and practical papers in all areas of
Database Programming Languages. Papers emphasizing new topics or
foundations of emerging areas are especially welcome. Suggested, but
not exclusive, topics of interest for submissions include:

* Data Exchange
* Data Integration and Interoperability
* Databases and Information Retrieval
* Databases and the Semantic Web
* Databases and Social Networking
* Databases and Cloud Computing
* Databases in Bioinformatics
* Databases in Computational Linguistics
* Declarative Data Centers
* Dependent Type Systems
* Information-Flow Type Systems
* Managing Uncertain and Imprecise Information
* Language-Integrated Query Mechanisms
* Programming Language Support for Databases
* Databases in E-commerce
* Multimedia Databases
* Peer-to-peer Data Management
* Provenance
* Stream Data Processing
* Schema Mapping and Metadata Management
* Security in Data Management
* Semi-structured Data
* Spatial and Temporal data
* Transaction Management
* Validation, Type-checking
* Web Services
* XML Processing


Prospective authors are invited to submit papers in English presenting
original research. Submitted papers must be unpublished and not
submitted for publication elsewhere. Submissions should be no more
than 6 pages long in the standard ACM SIG proceedings format with two
columns and a nine-point font on a ten-point baseline.

It is recommended that each submission begin with a succinct statement
of the problem and a summary of the main results. If the authors
believe more details are necessary to substantiate the main claims of
the paper, they may include a clearly marked appendix to be read at
the discretion of the committee. At least one author of each accepted
paper must attend the symposium to present their work.

Papers must be submitted online at the following URL:


Submission   : June 8, 2011 (11:59pm EDT)
Notification : July 16, 2011
DBPL 2011    : August 29, 2011


Accepted papers will appear in an informal proceedings, distributed
electronically from the symposium website.
