GENERAL INFORMATION

SBBD is the official event on databases of the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC). It is the largest venue in Latin America for presentation and discussion of research results and applications in the database domain. It usually gathers 400 attendees. In this edition,  SBBD will be organized in cooperation with ACM/SIGMOD.

Along with technical sessions, the symposium includes invited talks and tutorials given by distinguished speakers from the national and international database research community. SBBD also promotes a Thesis Workshop and a Demos (Tools) Session as co-located events.

For the 2016 edition, SBBD will accept JIDM Papers, Full, Short and Vision Papers. SBBD will have two cycles for full paper submissions. Each cycle involves two rounds of reviewing with rebuttal to allow minor revisions.

SBBD 2016 will be organized by Fraunhofer Project Center for Software and Systems Engineering of the Universidade Federal da Bahia, Brazil.
