The twenty-seventh edition of the Italian Symposium on Advanced Database Systems (SEBD – Sistemi Evoluti per Basi di Dati) will be jointly organized by ISTI CNR Pisa, Sapienza Università di Roma, Università della Calabria and ICT-SUD Cosenza. It will take place in Castiglione della Pescaia (Grosseto) at Riva del Sole Resort & SPA from 16th to June 19th 2019.
The SEBD symposium is the major annual event of the Italian database research community. It is thought as a gathering forum to meet, discuss, and exchange experiences among all people from academy and industry who are interested in database systems and in all their broad range of applications.

PhD Session

For its 27th edition, SEBD will host a session completely devoted to the next generation of researchers: Ph.D. students. They will be asked to submit a 4 pages paper describing their research which will be presented and discussed during an oral session. There the students will get feedback and suggestions from senior researchers of the SEBD community and have the chance to start new collaborations.
