      Please find below the call for papers for the 1st International
      Symposium on Applications of Constraint Databases (CDB'04).

      One of the aims of the Symposium is to look for new research directions
      and applications in constraint databases. Currently, the statistical
      analysis of spatial data is mostly disregarded in the constraint
      framework. With this mail we invite people from outside the database
      community to submit papers to the Symposium addressing, for example,
      the use of constraint databases in the statistical analysis of spatial
      data.

      Best regards,

      Floris Geerts
      Publicity Chair CDB'04

      First CALL FOR PAPERS

      1st INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON APPLICATIONS OF
      CONSTRAINT DATABASES

      in conjunction with SIGMOD-PODS 2004

      Paris, France, 12-13 June 2004

      http://www.luc.ac.be/cdb04


      SCOPE

      The last few years saw a growing interest of constraint
      database theory, query evaluation, and applications in a
      variety of conferences, journals, and books. This symposium
      wants to bring together people from several diverse areas
      that can contribute to the practice and the application of
      constraint databases. It is a continuation and extension of
      previous workshops held in Friedrichshafen, Germany (1995),
      Cambridge, USA (1996), Delphi, Greece (1997), and Seattle,
      USA (1998) as well as of the work in the comprehensive volume
      "Constraint Databases" edited by G. Kuper, L. Libkin and J.
      Paredaens (2000) and the textbook "Introduction to
      Constraint Databases" by P. Revesz (2002).


      TOPICS OF INTEREST

      We especially encourage submissions
      - opening new and future directions in constraint database
      research;
      - addressing constraints over domains other than the reals;
      - contributing to a better implementation of constraint
      database systems, in particular of query evaluation;
      - addressing efficient quantifier elimination; and
      - describing applications of constraint databases.

      The following is a non-exclusive list of topics of interest.

      applications:
      bioinformatics
      CAD and GIS
      computer security
      data mining
      model checking
      string databases

      data and knowledge representation:
      approximation techniques
      constraint data extraction
      constraint interpolation
      incomplete information
      spatiotemporal models
      visualization

      query evaluation:
      algebras
      indexing
      quantifier elimination

      query languages:
      complexity
      expressive power
      new operators


      INVITED SPEAKERS

      Joos Heintz, Universities of Buenos Aires and of Cantabria
      Leonid Libkin, University of Toronto
      Andreas Podelski, Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik

      PROCEEDINGS

      The proceedings will be published as part of the Lecture Notes
      in Computer Science (LNCS) series by Springer-Verlag. Authors
      are expected to sign a copyright release form to Springer-Verlag.

      SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

      The submission procedure will be electronic: Potential presenters
      should submit e-mail copies of a paper in English and maximum 15
      pages in either PostScript or PDF form to one of the program
      co-chairs. Selection of papers will be mainly based on relevance,
      clarity, and significance. The presented results should be original,
      not published somewhere else and not under submission elsewhere.
      Please follow the Springer LNCS guidelines for formatting.
