SEBD 2023

The thirty-first edition of the Italian Symposium on Advanced Database Systems (SEBD - Sistemi Evoluti per Basi di Dati) is organized by the Intelligent Interactive Information Access Hub of the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Padua, and will take place in Galzignano Terme (Italy) from the 2nd of July to the 5th of July 2023.

The symposium is the major annual event of the Italian database research community at large (English is the official language of the conference). The symposium is thought of as a gathering forum to meet, discuss and exchange experiences among all those, both in the academy and industry, who are interested in database systems and in all their broad range of applications.

SEBD 2023 is a single-track conference.

SEBD 2023 invites two kinds of contributions: full papers (up to 12 pages) and discussion papers (up to 8 pages).

Call for Papers

SEBD 2023 invites submissions of research, industry, and application contributions as well as software demonstrations. Regular papers presenting original work are solicited. Moreover, discussion papers containing descriptions of results already published are also welcomed.

There are three submission formats:

  • Regular papers (up to 12 pages + references). Original research works. Regular papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference.
  • Discussion papers (up to 8 pages + references). Results and ideas of interest to the SEBD audience, including extended abstracts of recent own publications, papers currently under submission, position papers, system and application descriptions and presentations of preliminary results.
  • Doctoral Consortium papers (up to 6-7 pages, including selected references). The papers should be singly authored by a current PhD student or a PhD student who submitted the thesis between September and December 2022; if accepted it will be presented at the Doctoral Consortium session.

Selection will be based on originality, clarity, and technical quality.

To accommodate a potentially large number of papers, this year, we introduce poster sessions as an alternative to present the accepted regular and discussion papers. The authors of an accepted paper will be asked if they prefer a classic oral or poster presentation. Nevertheless, the program committee will suggest the best way to present a paper based on the contribution type and the number of accepted papers from the same institution/research group. The program chairs will make the final decision on the presentation format.

Please note that an oral or a poster presentation has the same "importance" within the conference. Also, there will be no difference between a paper presented orally or as a poster in the proceedings. A booster session will introduce all poster presentations where the authors can pitch the contribution with a 1-2 minute presentation.

Submissions of papers must be in English, in PDF format, and formatted following the new CEUR-ART 1-column style, which is the style requested for the camera-ready preparation. Please download the template here.


The accepted (and presented) papers will be published as CEUR-WS proceedings freely available on-line: http://ceur-ws.org/ (Indexed by DBLP and Scopus).

Doctoral Consortium

The goal of the doctoral consortium is to provide a forum for PhD candidates to present their ongoing research and receive feedback from renowned and experienced members of the research community. The Consortium fosters a collaborative environment, encouraging constructive discussions and sharing of ideas. It will be an excellent opportunity for developing person-to-person networks to the benefit of the PhD students in their future careers – as well as of the community.

Submissions from students who are in the early stages of their research should provide a clear description of the problem to be addressed and the planned methodology. Submissions from students who are in the middle or final stages of their PhD research should clearly indicate the contributions made to date and future work directions.

Each doctoral symposium paper must be single-authored by a current PhD student or a PhD student who submitted the thesis between September and December 2022. The paper should be written in English and must be 6-7 pages long, including selected references. Submissions must be formatted in PDF by following the new CEUR-ART 1-column style, which is the style requested for the camera-ready preparation. Please download the template here.

Submissions will be reviewed by the Doctoral Consortium Program Committee (appointed by the Doctoral Consortium Chairs). All papers will be reviewed with respect to the overall presentation quality, the potential for the future impact of the research on the field, and the expected benefit to the other doctoral students attending the conference.

For any questions regarding Doctoral Consortium submissions, please email the Doctoral Consortium Chairs.


The accepted (and presented) papers will be published as CEUR-WS proceedings freely available on-line: http://ceur-ws.org/ (Indexed by DBLP and Scopus).
