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.
Since the year 2008, the new Conference Proceedings are available as Open Access publications from the ACM Digital
Library (part of the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series, AICPS, from their server in the U.S., you need to
register at no cost), and copies are also located on this EDBT.org server in Germany. The Association as well as the
user community are grateful to ACM for offering this service.
The EDBT Association has close relationships with other organizations
in the database field, including ACM SIGMOD
, IEEE TC on Data
, VLDB Endowment
and the ICDT Council
