The 16th International Symposium on
Database Programming Languages
(DBPL 2017)

will be held in conjunction with VLDB 2017
on September 1st, 2017, in Munich, Germany.


General Information

DBPL is a biennial symposium that aims to foster exchange of ideas and discussion about current trends and open problems between the data management and the programming languages research communities.

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 2017 solicits theoretical and practical papers in all areas of Data-Centric Programming. Please see the Call for Papers for more detailed information.
