Call For Paper

(deadline extended)

The emerging network infrastructures such as P2P, mobile and sensor networks, and cloud computing were once lab toys. Nonetheless, they show strong potential to become mainstreams in the foreseeable future. While most network-side issues have been addressed or resolved, the data management issues that arise from the real deployment of these infrastructures are ever increasing. In particular, challenges associated with acquiring, storing, processing, and analyzing large-scale data from these heterogeneous networks call for novel data management techniques. The inherently dynamic nature of these networks further poses new research issues, such as privacy and security. This workshop aims to facilitate the collaboration between researchers in database and networking areas by presenting cutting edge research topics and methodologies.


We encourage papers that propose novel data management techniques for tasks such as:
