Talk proposals

Data-Centric Programming Workshop 2014
January 25, 2014 | San Diego, CA, United States

We want DCP2014 to be as informal and interactive as possible. The program will thus involve a combination of invited talks, contributed talks about work in progress, and open-ended discussion sessions. There will be no published proceedings, but participants will be invited to submit working documents, talk slides, and so forth to be posted on the workshop website.

We invite proposals for talks in any area related to the connection between programming and data, including, but not limited to:

  • Formal systems that capture the essential theoretical elements of data-centric programming
  • Experimental systems that demonstrate novel data-centric programming techniques
  • Technology that demonstrates correctness, scalability, productivity, robustness, or maintainability of data-centric programs
  • Schema evolution, schema-type mapping, query languages, probabilistic programming, network-connected programming, or semi-structured data
  • Programming-related aspects of knowledge representation techniques including database theory, ontology techniques, and linked data
  • Impact of specific application areas (for example, e-science, e-gov, and sensors) on information-rich application design
  • Data exploration and visualization
  • Evaluation of data quality
  • Plugins and IDEs for information-rich application development
  • Cleaning and provenance of data, services, and processes

Talks about work in progress are particularly encouraged. If you have any questions about the relevance of a particular topic, please send email to the program committee (PC) chairs at

We solicit proposals for contributed talks. Proposals should be no longer than two pages, in either plain text or PDF format. We plan to allocate 30-minute talk slots, but proposals for shorter or longer talks will also be considered. Speakers may also submit supplementary material (for example, a full paper or presentation slides) if they desire, which PC members are free (but not expected) to read.

Submission process

  • Submissions should be no longer than two pages, in plain text or PDF format.
  • To submit your paper, use the online submission form.
  • Submission deadline: November 22, 2013
    (We cannot accept submissions received after this date.)
  • Revised talk proposals due January 8, 2014, to be posted on the workshop website

Note: The talk proposals will not be published; however, we hope to arrange a special issue of a relevant journal for publication of final papers.
