Workshop Overview

Data management systems are growing rapidly in scale and complexity, while skilled administrators are becoming rarer and more expensive. Adding autonomic, or self-managing, capabilities to these systems promises easier use and maintenance. While considerable progress has been made in this direction, trends like cloud computing, virtualization, and software-as-a-service pose new challenges. Autonomic capabilities need to scale to hundreds of database nodes while taking economic factors into account.

The SMDB workshop brings together innovative researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas related to autonomic data management systems. SMDB 2010 will be a one-day workshop where accepted papers are presented in an informal and interactive setting. Participation in the workshop is not limited to authors of accepted papers.

Previous workshops of the SMDB series focused on core topics in self-managing databases like physical design tuning, problem diagnosis and recovery, and database integration and protection. In addition to these core topics, the 2010 workshop seeks to broaden SMDB by soliciting submissions in emerging research areas like cloud computing, database testing, multitenant databases, large-scale storage systems, and datacenter administration.

Topics of Interest

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Important Dates

Note: The paper submission deadline is 5:00pm Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).

Paper Submission

Authors are invited to submit original research contributions in English of up to 6 pages in IEEE camera-ready format (templates are available from the ICDE 2010 submission guidelines page). Only electronic submission in PDF format will be accepted. Paper submissions should be made on-line through SMDB 2010's CMT paper submission site:

Authors of accepted papers will submit a camera-ready version for final publication. All papers accepted by the workshop will appear in the formal Proceedings of the Conference Workshops published by IEEE CS Press, and will therefore be included in the IEEE digital library.
