[April 26, 2018] !!! Submisson Deadline extended to May 7, 2018 !!!

The twenty-sixth edition of the Italian Symposium on Advanced Database Systems (SEBD - Sistemi Evoluti per Basi di Dati) is organized by Politecnico di Bari and Università degli Studi di Modena e Reggio Emilia. It will take place in Castellaneta Marina (Taranto) at ETHRA RESERVE (Ex Nova Yardinia) from June 24th to June 27th 2018.
The SEBD symposium is the major annual event of the Italian database research community. It is thought as a gathering forum to meet, discuss, and exchange experiences among all people from academy and industry who are interested in database systems and in all their broad range of applications.

PhD Session
For its 26th edition, SEBD will host a session completely devoted to the next generation of researchers: Ph.D. students. They will be asked to submit a 4 pages paper describing their research which will be presented and discussed during an oral session. There the students will get feedback and suggestions from senior researchers of the SEBD community and have the chance to start new collaborations.

See PhD Session for more information.
