The 10th Biennial Symposium on Data Base Programming Languages (DBPL'05)
to be held on August 28-29, 2005, in Trondheim, Norway, continues the
tradition of excellence initiated by its predecessors in Roscoff,
Finistere (1987), Salishan, Oregon (1989), Nafplion, Argolida (1991),
Manhattan, New York (1993), Gubbio, Umbria (1995), Estes Park, Colorado
(1997), Kinloch Rannoch, Scotland (1999), Marino, Rome (2001) and
Potsdam, Germany (2003). 

Over the years DBPL has established itself as the main venue for
publishing and discussing new ideas at the intersection of database and
programming languages research. 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 have been first announced and discussed at
DBPL. Today's emergence of new data management applications like Web
services, XML processing, sensor networks and peer to peer data
management has lead to a new flurry of creativity in the area lying at
the intersection of data management and programming languages, and DBPL
is an established destination for such new ideas.  

DBPL'05 solicits theoretical and practical papers in all areas of Data
Base Programming Languages. Papers emphasizing new topics or foundations
of emerging areas are especially welcome. Suggested topics include the
following, which is not to be considered as an exhaustive list:  

* Data integration and interoperability
* Databases and information retrieval
* Databases and the Semantic Web
* Programming language support for databases
* Databases in e-commerce
* Multimedia databases
* Peer to peer data management
* Web services
* XML processing
* Stream data processing
* Security in data management
* Validation, type-checking
* Database languages in Bioinformatics
* Databases in computational linguistics
* Formal foundations


The symposium will be co-located with VLDB'05 in Trondheim, Norway. More
information about the symposium location is available from


DBPL'05 is kindly sponsored by Microsoft Research.

Invited Speaker:

Giuseppe Castagna (ENS)

Submission of Papers: 

Prospective authors are invited to submit full papers in English
presenting original research. Submitted papers must be unpublished and
not submitted for publication elsewhere. The proceedings will be
published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science
series. Submissions should be no more than 15 pages long in the format
specified by Springer-Verlag at the URL:

It is recommended that each submission begins 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. E-mail addresses and fax numbers of the authors should
be included on the title page. At least one author of each accepted
paper must attend the symposium to present their work. 

The best theoretical papers will be invited into the Journal of Computer
and System Sciences, while the best systems papers will be considered
for publication in a special edition of Information Systems.
