Call for Demonstrations

The EDBT demonstrations track is an exciting and highly interactive way to demonstrate database systems research. We encourage submissions that describe how the demonstrated system illustrates innovative research contributions. Demonstration proposals should give a short description of the demonstrated system, explain what is going to be demonstrated, and state the significance of the contribution to the field of database research, in particular consideration of the spirit of the EDBT 2006 banner theme

"From Database Systems to Universal Data Management"

In the proceedings, the papers of this category are limited to four pages in Springer LNCS format. Submissions should also adhere to this limit.
