Call For Papers

BNCOD 2013 seeks research papers for presentation at the conference and subsequent publication.

Topics of Interests

BNCOD 2013 welcomes research papers on a broad range of topics related to data-centric computation. For some years, every edition of BNCOD has centred around a main theme, acting as a focal point for keynote addresses, tutorials, and research papers. The theme of BNCOD 2013 will be “Big Data”; it encompases a growing need to manage data that is too big, too fast, or too hard for the existing technology [1].

The topics listed below are intended as a sample; we encourage submissions on all data-centric topics.

  • Systems for Data Management: data system architecture; storage, replication and consistency; physical representations; query and dataflow processin
  • Scalable Data Analysis: complex queries and search; approximate querying; scalable statistical methods; management of uncertainty and reasoning at scale; data privacy and security; data mining and knowledge discovery
  • Management of Very Large Data Systems: availability; adaptivity and self-tuning; power management; virtualization
  • Data Models and Languages: XML and semi-structured data; multi-media, temporal and spatial data; data streams; declarative languages; language interfaces for databases
  • Domain-Specific Data Management: methods and systems for science; networks and mobility; ubiquitous computing; sensor databases
  • Management of Web and Heterogeneous Data: information extraction; information integration; meta-data management; data cleaning; service oriented architectures
  • User Interfaces and Social Data: data visualization; collaborative data analysis and curation; social networks; email and messaging analytics
  • Data and Knowledge: Knowledge base management, reasoning over incomplete and/or inconsistent data, ontology-based data access, ontology querying, semantic query optimization, storing and manipulating RDF data.

Submission Guidelines

The conference management tool for the submission of abstracts and papers is accessible at

Full papers (from 12 to 14 pages), short papers (from 4 to 10 pages), system descriptions and demonstrations (from 4 to 10 pages) may be submitted.

As in previous years, papers will be published by Springer as a volume in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Accepted papers will only be published if they are presented in person by a registered author at the conference.

Submissions are reviewed in a single-blind manner. They must be in PDF and formatted according to the Springer guidelines for the LNCS series:
