Call for Papers

Currently at its eighteenth edition, SEBD is the major annual event of the Italian research community in the database field. 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.
