The SSDBM conference series focuses on concepts, tools, and techniques for scientific and statistical database applications. The 2010 meeting marks the 22nd time that scientific domain experts, database researchers, practitioners and developers will come together to share their new insights and to discuss future research directions in a stimulating environment. The conference will consist of a single track of presentations, including invited talks, peer-reviewed papers, system and tool demonstrations, and panel discussions. The conference proceedings will be published as a volume in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
We solicit full papers (up to 18 pages LNCS style) describing original work not published or under review elsewhere. Papers selected after peer review will be included in the conference proceedings and presented orally at the conference.
Topics of particular interest include (but are not limited to):
Modeling and representation of data, metadata, ontologies, and processes for scientific application domains
Integration and exchange of scientific data
Design, implementation, and optimization of scientific workflows
Cyberinfrastructure architectures and components for scientific computing and eScience, including Web portals, repositories, and digital libraries
System architectures in support of scientific data management and analysis, including distributed, parallel, and Grid architectures
Management and querying of scientific data, including spatial, temporal, spatio-temporal, and streaming data
Annotation and provenance of scientific and statistical data
Mining and analysis of large-scale scientific datasets
Security, privacy, and trust for scientific and statistical data
Visualization and exploration of large-scale scientific datasets
Case studies and applications related to scientific data management in all domains
We also invite short papers (up to 9 pages LNCS style) describing systems and software demonstrations or discussing new ideas or work in an early stage. Accepted short papers will be featured in poster-and-demonstration sessions and they will be included in the proceedings.
