Welcome to the Web site of the EDBT Association (edbt.org)
The EDBT Association is a non-political and non-profit organization for
promoting and supporting research and progress in the fields of databases and
information systems technology and applications. It was formed in 1990 to
provide a stable structure to support the continuity of the EDBT Conference
series; it changed its legal status in 1995, assuming the current legal form of
an association according to Italian laws.
Our major activity is the promotion of the International Conference on
Extending Database Technology (EDBT), which has been held every two years since
1988. From 2008 on, the Conference is being held annually. In the beginning,
the Conference Proceedings have been published by Springer-Verlag
as part of the LNCS
Series. We have also
promoted a series of Summer Schools, started in 1991.
From 2008 to 2013, the Conference Proceedings have been published in the ACM
Digital Library (part of the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series,
AICPS); Open Access copies are located on this EDBT.org server in Germany.
In the year 2014, EDBT and ICDT Proceedings moved to a new, fully Open Access
publication platform they started in cooperation with the University of
Konstanz Library: OpenProceedings.org
. From this
publication site, copies of all papers can be freely (re-)distributed under a
Creative Commons License.
The EDBT Association has close relationships with other organizations in the
database field, including ACM SIGMOD
, IEEE TC on Data Engineering
, VLDB Endowment
, and the ICDT Council
