    3rd International Workshop on
    XQuery Implementation, Experience and Perspectives

    June 30, 2006
    Collocated with ACM SIGMOD/PODS 2006, Chicago, USA


    XIME-P 2006 invites original research contributions as well as reports
    on industrial efforts on the implementation, utilization, and overall
    prospects of XQuery. Like the 2004 (Paris) and 2005 (Baltimore)
    editions of the XIME-P workshop series, XIME-P 2006 will be held just
    after and in cooperation with the ACM SIGMOD/PODS conference, this time
    in Chicago (IL), USA.

    Not too many weeks ago, the W3C XML Query Working Group published
    Candidate Recommendations for the XQuery specification family, and
    odds are that, after 8 years of work, XQuery will become a standard at
    around the time of SIGMOD 2006. In this landmark year for XQuery, the
    3rd edition of the XIME-P workshop series will thus be an event of
    particular importance and visibility.

    One of the fascinating aspects of XQuery is that work on the
    language specification, its implementation, and its application
    is happening on the verge of databases, document processing, and
    programming languages. Computer science research and industry has
    thus found quite a number of promising -- and sometimes completely
    disjoint -- avenues to approach challenges in the XQuery domain. This
    ''heterogeneity'' in contributions and attendees has been a source of
    lively discussions, panels, and an interesting technical program for
    previous XIME-P editions. For 2006, we will try to underline this

    Since the language is approaching W3C Recommendation status, XIME-P 2006
    explicitly welcomes contributions which relate to standards-compliant
    treatments of XQuery. Technically, this aspect can be challenging --
    especially when conformance and efficiency seem to be at odds (when in
    reality they need not be).

    The XIME-P 2006 program will feature talks and panels on research as
    well as industrial efforts on the implementation and utilization of
    XQuery. We are delighted to report that Don Chamberlin, a lead in the
    W3C XQuery Working Group as well as one of the original designers of
    the SQL language, has agreed to give the XIME-P 2006 keynote speech.

    -- XIME-P 2006 Topics of Interest

    Topics of interest include the following (though interesting and/or
    innovative papers on all aspects of XQuery are welcome):

    - XQuery implementation paradigms: native, relational, streaming
    - XQuery over very large XML instances
    - Impact and implementation of static and dynamic typing
    - The role of validation in efficient XQuery processors
    - XQuery debugging (esp. declarative debugging techniques)
    - XQuery and computing in the sciences
    - XQuery as a programming language
    - Coherent XQuery subsets and embedded XQuery processors
    - Teaching XQuery (XQuery in curricula and courses in general)

    -- Paper Submission

    XIME-P 2006 calls for original contributions relevant to the open
    list of topics sketched above. We explicitly welcome reports on
    innovative, off-beat, and ''early stage'' approaches to the
    implementation and application of XQuery as long as the submission
    meets the high quality standards of the XIME-P workshop series.

    - Papers should be formatted according to the ACM guidelines and
    SIG proceedings templates available at


    - Papers should not exceed 6 pages in length (including references
    and appendices). The mandatory submission file format is PDF.

    - More details on the submission process will be given on the XIME-P
    2006 web site (www.ximep-2006.org) shortly.

    The primary publication medium for XIME-P has been and will be SIGMOD
    DiSC. This mode of publication ensures wide dissemination and high
    visibility (e.g., in the ACM Digital Library and Michael Ley's DBLP
    index). Online proceedings will additionally hosted at the workshop
    web site, www.ximep-2006.org.
