DBPL 2020

The 18th International Symposium on Database Programming Languages
September 4th in Tokyo, Japan
In conjunction with VLDB 2020

DBPL is cancelled for this year, and will hopefully be held in 2021.

General Information

The DBPL symposium is aimed at improving understanding, and facilitating exchange of ideas, between data management and programming languages research, broadly construed.

For over 30 years, DBPL has established itself as the principal venue for publishing and discussing new ideas and problems at the intersection of data management and programming languages. Many key contributions relevant to the formal foundations, design, implementation, and evaluation of query languages (e.g., for object-oriented, nested, or semi-structured data) were first announced at DBPL.

DBPL 2020 solicits theoretical and practical papers in all areas of Data-Centric Programming Languages. Please see the Call for Papers for more detailed information.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We are continuously monitoring the COVID-19 situation from local authorities and the World Health Organization. The symposium is half a year away, and we are confident that COVID-19 emergency will pass over and the symposium will be held in September, as planned. And, if necessary, alternative solutions, such as postponement, remote presentations, etc will be looked into and identified.
