Keynote Speech:(1) Towards Successful Ph.D. Research in Database Systems and Data Mining
by Jiawei Han, UIUC
(2)On the life of a researcher by Serge Abiteboul, INRIA
1. Aims of the Event
The Ph.D. Workshop on innovative database technogy is intended to bring together Ph.D. students working on topics related to the SIGMOD conference series. The workshop will offer Ph.D. students the opportunity to present, discuss, and receive feedback on their research in a constructive and international atmosphere.

The workshop will be accompanied by prominent professors and researchers in the fields of database technology. These accompanying professors will participate actively and contribute to the discussions.

The workshop is co-located with the SIGMOD2007 conference. The workshop language is English.

2. Topics of Interest
As for the SIGMOD conferences series, all topics from the field of database technology are of interest for the Ph.D. Workshop. These topics include (but are not limited to):
  • Benchmarking and performance evaluation
  • Data quality, semantics and integration
  • Database monitoring and tuning
  • Data privacy and security
  • Data mining and OLAP
  • Embedded, sensor and mobile databases
  • Indexing, searching and database querying
  • Managing uncertain and imprecise information
  • Novel/ Advanced applications and systems
  • Peer-to-peer and networked data management
  • Personalized information systems
  • Query processing and optimization
  • Replication, caching, and publish-subscribe systems
  • Semi-structured data
  • Storage and transaction management
  • Web services

    3. Submission
    Papers describing doctoral work should be submitted in PDF or PostScript format to xfmeng@ruc.edu.cn, yuge@ise.neu.edu.cn. The paper length should not exceed 6 pages, the format is according to ACM SIG proceedings template.

    In contrast to regular conference papers, submissions should address specifically doctoral work! Therefore, the following elements are recommended:

  • A clear formulation of the research question.
  • An identification of the significant problems in the field of research.
  • An outline of the current knowledge of the problem domain, as well as the state of existing solutions.
  • A presentation of any preliminary ideas, the proposed approach and the results achieved so far
  • A sketch of the applied research methodology.
  • A description of the Ph.D. project's contribution to the problem solution.
  • A discussion of how the suggested solution is different, new, or better as compared to existing approaches to the problem.
  • The intention of this workshop is to support and inspire Ph.D. students during their ongoing research efforts. Therefore, it is necessary that authors will have neither achieved their Ph.D. degree nor submitted their thesis before the Ph.D workshop (June 12, 2006). To enforce this rule we require authors to disclose their expected graduation date and their advisor's name when submitting.

    Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings, which will appear on the SIGMOD DISC.
