The Dutch Belgian Database Day (DBDBD) is a yearly one-day workshop
organized by a Belgian or Dutch university, whose general topic is database
research.  DBDBD invites submissions (1 page abstract) on a broad range of
database and database-related topics, including but not limited to data
storage and management, theoretical database issues, database performance,
data mining, information retrieval, data semantics, querying, ontologies

At DBDBD, junior researchers from the Netherlands and Belgium can present
their recent results, and meet senior researchers in the field of databases.
It is an excellent opportunity to meet up with your Belgian/Dutch
colleagues, and to get informed about the (recent) database-related research
performed in Belgian/Dutch universities.  The workshop is also open to
non-Belgian/Dutch participants (presentations are in English).  The workshop
consists of oral presentations.  There are no printed proceedings.
Abstracts of talks will be published on the workshop's website.

This year, DBDBD is organized by the Database Architectures group [1] of
Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) [2], the national research institute
for mathematics and computer science in the Netherlands, and under auspices
of SIKS [3], the Dutch research school for information and knowledge
systems.  DBDBD 2015 will be held at CWI in Amsterdam (Netherlands) on
Wednesday, December 16, 2015.

Topics of Interest

We welcome submissions on all topics related to database research, including
but not limited to:

* Data storage and management, streaming data, peer-to-peer and cloud;
* Theoretical database issues, data models, semantics and languages;
* Database performance and scalability;
* Data integration, data quality, data cleaning, ontologies;
* Data mining, clustering, summarization, entity & event extraction;
* Data security, privacy and personalization;
