Paper submission

DILS 2006 invites two types of papers:
  • Research papers describe novel methods, algorithms, or models for solving problems relevant to the scope of DILS. The main focus of such papers must be the advancement of research on data integration or data management. Research papers must not be longer than 16 pages.
  • Systems or experience papers describe innovative realizations of systems solving problems relevant to DILS. These papers need not present a new method, but the systems described must use cutting-edge technology and must be up-and-running. Papers describing commercial solutions are also welcome, as long as sufficient detail of the problem and its technical solution are provided. Systems papers must not be longer than 10 pages.
Submissions must be clearly marked as either research or experience papers. Please use an appropriate subtitle to ensure correct judgement by the DILS reviewers.

As for previous DILS conferences, accepted papers will be published by Springer in the LNBI (Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics) series.

All papers must be previously unpublished and may not be under parallel review at any other journal or conference. Submissions should be formatted according to the LNCS guidelines (see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). All submissions will be handled electronically. Acceptance of each submission will be based by the expertise of at least three reviewers. Submission is electronic via the Microsoft Conference Management Site: https://msrcmt.research.microsoft.com/DILS2006/
