ADBIS’21 invites proposals for a one-day workshop in any area related to databases and/or information systems to complement its scientific program. Workshops on challenging or emerging areas of the conference topics are specifically welcomed.

The workshop proposals should be up to 3 pages long and include the following:

  • A concise title of the workshop.
  • Proposed duration of the workshop (half or full-day).
  • The names and the affiliations of the organizers. The organizers should add a short biographical note with their areas of expertise and their experience in organizing workshops or related events. The primary contact amongst the organizers must be indicated.
  • An outline of the workshop’s objectives and targets. The outline should also address the workshop:
    • theme and its main topics,
    • the importance of the workshop in view of the conference and its relevance to ADBIS
    • format, including, for instance, the expected number of submissions, the number of invited speakers, the types of planned activities (e.g., short paper presentation, invited talk, demo, poster, etc.), and an approximate timeline (breaks should be synchronized with scheduled breaks if possible).
  • The expected participants in the workshop. If the workshop has been organized before, either in the frame of ADBIS or any other conference, the organizers should also report the previous attendance, the outcomes, any post-workshop publication venue, etc.
  • A description of the workshop processes, such as the peer review process, a tentative list of PC members that have agreed or will be approached to serve the workshop, the timeline, advertisement, etc.

Authors are invited to submit their proposal, formatted according to the guidelines for ADBIS research papers, by e-mail to
