Data Engineering deals with the use of engineering techniques and methodologies in the design, development and assess­ment of information systems for different computing platforms and application environments. The 23rd International Confe­rence on Data Engineering provides a premier forum for sharing and exchanging research and engineering results to problems encountered in today?s information society.

We especially encourage submissions that make efforts (1) to expose practitioners to how the research results and tools can contribute to their everyday problems in practice and to provide them with an early opportunity to evaluate these tools; (2) to raise awareness in the research community of the problems of practical applications of data engineering and to promote the exchange of data engineering technologies and experience among researchers and practitioners; (3) to identify new issues and directions for future research and development in the data engineering field.


An award will be given to the best paper. A separate award will be given to the best student paper. Papers eligible for this award must have a (gra­duate or undergraduate) student listed as the first and contact author, and the majority of the authors must be students. Such submissions must be marked as student papers at the time of submission.


The conference will include an industrial track for high quality papers and presentations on innovative commercial software for all facets of information technology, which include novel applications of database and information retrieval technologies, experiences in applying recent research advances to practical scenarios and innovations in commercial information management software. Industrial track submissions should also be prepared in the 8/5"x11" IEEE camera-ready format, with a 10-page limit, and submitted electronically via https://msrcmt.research.microsoft.com/ICDE2007/.


Panel proposals must include an abstract, an outline of the panel format, and relevant information about the proposed panelists. Send your pro­po­sals electronically by the submission deadline to the Panel Chair, Meral Özsoyoglu at meral[AT]case[.]edu.


Demonstration proposals should focus on new technology advances in applying databases or new techniques. Proposals must be no more than four double-columned pages, and should give a short des­crip­­tion of the demonstrated system, explain what is going to be demonstrated, and state the significance of the contribution to database technology, applications or techniques. Submit your proposals electronically via https://msrcmt.research.microsoft.com/ICDE07Demo/ submission page. Even if you emailed your proposals to Demo Chairs previously, please upload them to submission page.


Seminar proposals must include an abstract, an outline, a des­crip­­tion of the target audience, duration (1.5 or 3 hours), and a short bio of the presenter(s). Send your proposals electronically to the Seminar Chairs, Karl Aberer and Gültekin Özsoyoglu at karl[.]aberer[AT]epfl[.]ch and tekin[AT]eecs[.]cwru[.]edu.


We invite proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with ICDE 2007. We solicit proposals for workshops related to the conference topics. Proposals for workshops should stress how they intend to provide more insight into the proposed topics with respect to the main conference. The scope definition of the proposal should encompass only some of the topics of the main conference. Workshop proposals should be submitted to the workshop chairs, Ahmed Elmagarmid, Fred Lochovsky and Yucel Saygin (at ake[AT]cs[.]purdue[.]edu, fred[AT]cs[.]ust[.]hk and ysaygin[AT]sabanciuniv[.]edu) with the title, a description of the topic, and the names of key organizers such as program chair(s). Prior contact with the workshop chairs is encouraged. The organizer(s) of approved workshops will be responsible for advertising their workshops, and for the reviewing process for their workshop's papers, and for the collection of camera-ready copies of accepted papers.


Research papers must be prepared in the 8/5"x11" IEEE camera-ready format, with a 10-page limit, and submitted electronically at https://msrcmt.research.microsoft.com/ICDE2007. All accepted papers will appear in the Proceedings pub­lished by the IEEE Computer Society.

A paper submitted to ICDE 2007 cannot be under review for any other conference or journal during the time it is being considered for ICDE 2007, and it must be substantially different from any previously published work. Authors submitting papers to ICDE 2007 implicitly agree to the following terms:

"I understand that the paper being submitted must not contain substantial overlap with any other paper submitted elsewhere now or during the review process. Furthermore, previously published papers with any overlap are cited prominently in this submission."

Questions about this policy or how it applies to your work should be directed to the program chairs.

Authors of accepted papers must sign an IEEE copyright release form. The online conference proceedings may be published as early as March 1, 2007, so any patent applications must be resolved before that time. By submitting a paper to ICDE 2007, authors implicitly agree to public release of the paper as of the above date -- no papers will be withheld from the online proceedings.
