VLDB 2007 is a premier international forum for database researchers, vendors, practitioners, application developers, and users. We are looking forward to an exciting conference, discussing original results on all aspects of data management as well panels, tutorials, and demonstrations that will present the most critical issues and views on practical leading-edge database technology, applications, and techniques. VLDB 2007 also hosts a series of workshops that cover important aspects in the thematic context of data bases.
During the conference a series of interviews with participants of VLDB was recorded in cooperation with the Austrian Computer Science Week 2007 which published these interviews in the form of a podcast series. For your convenience, you can directly download the interviews here.

VLDB 2007 marks the 33rd occurrence of the premier international forum for database researchers, vendors, practitioners, application developers, and users. We invite submissions reporting original results on all aspects of data management as well as proposals for panels, tutorials, and demonstrations that will present the most critical issues and views on practical leading-edge database technology, applications, and techniques. We also invite proposals for events and workshops that may take place at the conference site before or after the VLDB 2007 conference.
VLDB 2007 strongly encourages the submission of creative work that goes beyond improvements of already known results. Submissions may cover novel approaches in data management, visions that present new viewpoints and challenges, or a description of the implementation or deployment of advanced database technology in an industrial or application setting. Furthermore, since new challenging applications appear on the horizon, papers that describe those with respect to their technical substance, their impact, and their importance, and relate them to today’s database technology are also solicited.
To continue the policy of broadening the range of topics covered at the conference, VLDB 2007 will be organized into three tracks, each with its own program committee:
The Core Database Technology Track will evaluate papers on technologies intended to be incorporated within the database system itself. The topics of interest to this track include (but are not limited to):
The Information Infrastructure Track covers all aspects of data management not implemented within a conventional database engine. The topics covered by this track include (but are not limited to):
The Industrial, Applications, and Experience Track covers innovative commercial database implementations, novel applications of database technology, and experience in applying recent research advances to practical situations, in any of the following example areas (or, in other areas where data management is important):
In some cases, material might cut across more than one of the tracks, and indeed we strongly encourage papers that pursue some of the ties between them. As submissions will be judged by their appropriateness for the track in which they are being evaluated, appropriate placement of papers is important. If in doubt, we suggest contacting one of the PC chairpersons. The program committee reserves the right to move papers between the PCs to ensure the fairest possible evaluation.
