    International Workshop on Database Technologies
    for Handling XML information on the Web

    March 14, 2004, Heraklion, Crete (Greece)

    In conjunction with EDBT 2004 (

    Themes and Goals

    The workshop theme is the use of Database Technology and the Extensible
    Markup Language (XML) in the Web. Modern database systems enhance the
    capabilities of traditional database systems by their ability to handle
    any kind of data, including text, image, audio, and video, and to provide
    access to these data via SQL-like query languages. Today, database systems
    are particularly relevant to the Web, as they can provide input to content
    generators for Web pages, and can handle queries issued over the Internet.
    As database systems increasingly start talking to each other over the Web,
    there is a fast growing interest in using XML as the standard exchange
    format. As a result, many relational database systems can export data as
    XML documents and import data from XML documents. XML is on its way to
    becoming the communication standard of the Web. Moreover, there is an
    increasing trend to store XML-data in database systems and, by this, make
    it easier to access and maintain. In the meantime, some commercial
    database systems are already on the market that are especially tailored to
    store, maintain and easily access XML-documents.

    The goal of this workshop is to bring together academics, practitioners,
    users and vendors to discuss the use and synergy between the
    above-mentioned technologies. Many commercial systems built today are
    increasingly using these technologies together and it is important to
    understand the various research and practical issues. The wide range of
    participants will help the various communities understand both specific
    and common problems.

    Topics of Interest

    In order to foster a lively exchange of perspectives on the conference
    topics, the program committee encourages contributions from both
    researchers and practitioners. Topics of interest include, but are not
    limited to:

    - Methodology and tools for the design of XML schemas and DTDs
    - Interchange and integration of XML data
    - Metrics for XML documents and schemas
    - XML query languages
    - Storage and compression of XML data
    - Indexing and retrieval of XML data
    - Query processing over XML data
    - Benchmarks and performance
    - XML Infrastructure technology
    - Streaming of XML documents
    - Security and privacy with XM
    - Selective dissemination of XML documents
    - XML and e-commerce
    - XML and business (XML/EDI)
    - XML Ontologies for semantic Web
    - Convergence of XML and Information Retrieval
    - Convergence of XML and Decision support
    - Web mining
    - Navigation of XML documents on the Web

    Paper Submission

    Workshop submissions must generally be in electronic form using Portable
    Document Format (.pdf), PostScript (.ps) or WinWord (.doc). Papers must be
    unpublished and not exceed 15 pages in length. Papers should be formatted
    according to the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)
    guidelines. LNCS formatting guidelines and templates can be found at All submitted papers will
    be judged on their quality and relevance from at least 3 members of the
    program committee. At least one author of each accepted paper must attend
    the workshop to present their work.

    Authors shall submit their papers electronically to
    together with an ASCII version of the title and abstract.


    It is intended to publish post-workshop proceedings with a major
    publishing company, after updating papers on the basis of review remarks
    and comments of the workshop participants. Informal proceedings will be
    available at the workshop.
