Call for Abstracts

Null Databases (NDBs), that is, databases that contain only the "NULL" value, are gaining increasing importance in so many application scenarios that we cannot list all of them here.

NDBs 2009 will provide an opportunity for academic researchers and industry professionals to discuss the latest issues and progress in the fundamental area of null databases.

Authors are invited to submit abstracts in all areas of NDBs, including but not limited to those listed below.

  • NULL exchange
  • Active NDBs
  • Semi-structured NDBs
  • NDBs on the Web
  • NDBs Theory and Design
  • Data Models and Languages for NDBs
  • Fuzzy, Probabilistic, and Approximate NDBs
  • Embedded and Mobile NDBs
  • NDBs Query Processing and Optimization
  • Reliable and Robust NDBs
  • Spatial and Temporal NDBs
  • Stream NDBs
  • Conceptual Modelling for NDBs
  • NDBs integration
