The EDBT/ICDT 2014 Joint Conference will be held in Athens, Greece, March 24-28, 2014, to provide an established and prestigious forum for the exchange of the latest research results in data management and the foundations of database systems. You are invited to submit proposals for workshops that would be of interest to the EDBT audience or to the ICDT audience; for a non-exhaustive list of topics, please see the EDBT 2014 and ICDT 2014 call for papers. Proposals that target the combined EDBT/ICDT audience are particularly welcome.

Important Dates


  • Submission of proposals for workshops: July 31, 2013
  • Workshop acceptance/rejection notification: August 30, 2013
  • Workshops: March 28, 2014



Please submit your proposals (at most 5 pages, in pdf) via e-mail to the Workshops Chair, K. Selcuk Candan ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ). As a potential workshop organizer, please consider the following points while you prepare your proposal:

Workshops will share the conference venue with the EDBT/ICDT 2014 conference. EDBT/ICDT workshops will run on March 29, 2014, directly after the main conference. Workshops can last either 1/2 or 1 day. Workshop attendees are required to register to the joint conference event. Attendance at workshops is included in the registration fee.

Workshops will benefit from the EDBT/ICDT 2014 organizational infrastructure and receive administrative support (registration, badges, refreshments, hotel booking, etc.). We expect you to work with the EDBT/ICDT 2014 local organizers on the details and publicity aspects of your accepted workshop. There will be a joint ACM Proceedings volume covering all EDBT 2014 workshops. Therefore, by submitting a workshop proposal, organizers commit to implement a rigorous review process with

  • a notification of acceptance date of (no later than) January 31st 2014 and
  • a deadline for camera ready papers of (no later than) February 21st 2014.

Your proposal should contain the following pertinent information:

  • A brief description of the workshop, including the workshop's name and topic, and a short summary of the technical issues in the focus of the workshop. A sketch of the workshop's Call for Papers will be helpful.
  • Names, affiliations, e-mail addresses, and brief bios of the workshop organizers. Please mark the primary contact person.
  • Preferred workshop duration, format, and an estimate of the number of expected participants. While it is understood that a full day workshop may have 1-2 keynotes or invited presentations, workshop programs that are dominantly based on invited presentations are not encouraged.
  • Length of submissions and camera ready papers (prefered length: 7-8 pages for technical contributions, 1-2 pages for keynote abstracts),
  • Short information on previous editions of the workshop series (if applicable), including
    • conference it was co-located with,
    • number of attendants,
    • number of submissions,
    • number of accepted/invited papers,
    • length of camera ready papers, and
    • any other information you feel is relevant.
  • Information on the workshop program committee (if already available) with at least 30% of the prospective committee members already commited.

Based on the input you provide, the decision about the acceptance or rejection of your proposal as a co-located workshop will be made by the EDBT/ICDT 2014 General, Program, and Workshop Chairs.
