international conference will bring together scientific domain experts,
database researchers, practitioners and developers for the presentation
and exchange of current research on concepts, tools and techniques for
scientific and statistical database applications. The 16th
SSDBM will provide a forum for original research contributions and
practical system design, implementation and evaluation. This year the
conference will focus on the following themes: Spatiotemporal, Sensor
Databases, Bioinformatics (genomics, biodiversity informatics including
biological databases), and Data Mining. The
priority areas will be supplemented with invited talks and panel
sessions, and illustrated demonstrations of research prototypes and
industrial systems. SSDBM 2004 will continue the tradition of past SSDBM
meetings in providing a stimulating environment to encourage discussion,
fellowship and exchange of ideas in all aspects of research related to
scientific and statistical database management in Santorini Island. This
year the conference has been arranged the week after SIGMOD'04 in Paris.
