  • Call for Papers

    The International Workshop on Networking Meets Databases (NetDB 2011) will bring together researchers from the systems and networking and databases communities. Many research areas, such as cloud computing, data center networking, privacy-aware systems, sensor networks, network management, P2P systems, rule mining, inference over system logs and network traffic data, and declarative system-building, are blurring the boundaries between these two communities. The goal of the workshop is to foster an environment in which researchers from both communities can discuss ideas that will shape and influence these emerging research areas. We encourage submissions of early work, with novel and interesting ideas. We expect that work introduced at NetDB 2011, once fully thought through, completed, and described in a finished form, may be relevant to conferences such as SOSP, OSDI, SIGCOMM, SIGMOD, VLDB, NSDI, or ICDE.


    NetDB takes a broad view of what constitutes research relevant to both communities. As a venue for exploring new directions, NetDB solicits submissions on work that borrows ideas and experiences from either community. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
    • Large-scale elastic data management infrastructure.
    • High-level programming paradigms for distributed systems.
    • Data-centric inference and debugging support for distributed systems.
    • Monitoring, archival and mining of system logs and network traffic data.
    • Cross-layer optimization of databases and networks.
    • Data management in wide-area distributed systems.
    • Distributed publish/subscribe systems.
    • Sensor data management.
    • Query evaluation using network hardware.
    • Privacy preserving systems and data analysis.
    • Analysis over incomplete or imprecise data.

    Papers will be selected based on originality, likelihood of spawning insightful discussion and technical merit. Each submission will receive a minimum of three reviews. The program will include presentation of the papers along with plenty of time for lively discussion among the participants.

    To ensure a productive workshop environment, attendance at NetDB will be limited to around 30 participants. Invitations will be extended according to the following priorities:
    • One author per paper
    • Members of the program and steering committees
    • Co-authors of accepted and submitted papers.
    • Event sponsors and additional research community members at the discretion of the Program Committee.
    • Authors of accepted SIGMOD papers of relevance to workshop


    Papers submitted to NetDB'11 should follow these guidelines:
    • Six or fewer pages, including appendices but excluding references
    • Papers should be submitted electronically as PDF files and be formatted using the ACM guidelines and SIGMOD proceedings template available at: SIGMOD Formatting Instructions
    Paper submission will be blind, i.e., the submissions will not indicate the names or affiliations of the authors in the paper. Please do not submit abbreviated versions of journal or conference papers. In particular, submissions to NetDB must not be concurrent with a substantially similar submission to a conference, including condensed versions of work that has been submitted to a conference and is currently under review. Published proceedings will be made available. Accepted papers may be subsequently revised, expanded, and submitted to full conferences and journals. Please submit your paper here.
