SBBD 2016 invites submissions of tutorial proposals. Each tutorial will be presented in a 3 hours session. Only an abstract (1-2 pages) of the accepted tutorials, including bibliographic references, will be published in the symposium proceedings. However, copies of the presentation slides will also be required before the event for distribution to the tutorial attendees.

We will consider proposals for introductory and advanced tutorials on any topic within the area of databases. Introductory tutorials should target an audience consisting of advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as well as attendees from industry. Hence, they can be thought of as “recycling” courses though they should not be about traditional “textbook” topics. Advanced tutorials must cover a topic’s state-of-the-art, motivating and exposing potential research issues.
