Panel Proposal Submission

EDBT 2006 is seeking proposals for panels that discuss controversial issues of importance to the conference audience. Note that panels should purposely not be just a sequence of short presentations by the panelists, but should aim to spur a lively debate that involves the audience. For a panel proposal, it is mandatory that most of the planned panelists have already committed themselves to personal participation, should the panel be accepted. The panel proposal must list the planned panelists, together with their affiliations and email addresses. Panel proposers should be aware of the fact that there is a panelist registration deadline. They are kindly asked to inform the panelists proposed about it.

Please send panel proposals directly to the EDBT 2006 Panel & Tutorial Chair, Klemens Böhm, at klemens.boehm@ipd.uka.de.

Tutorial Proposal Submission

EDBT 2006 is looking for high-quality tutorials that connect to the conference theme "From Database Systems to Universal Data Management", and/or target at an audience with an industry background. Potential speakers must be experienced in giving this kind of presentations. They will be required to provide comprehensive tutorial notes (slides) prior to the event, which will then be published on the EDBT web site and thus be made available to conference attendees free of charge. Tutorials will be presented during the main EDBT conference as parallel sessions. EDBT 2006 solicits both short (1.5 hour) and long (3 hours) tutorials. Tutorial proposals should be up to 5 pages in length and indicate both scope and depth of the tutorial, as well as the intended length. The conference organizers will evaluate the tutorials presented at the conference based on feedback forms from the audience.

Please send tutorial proposals to the EDBT 2006 Panel & Tutorial Chair, Klemens Böhm, at klemens.boehm@ipd.uka.de.
