Conference Venue


The SSDBM international conference will bring together scientific domain experts, database researchers, practitioners and developer for the presentation and exchange of current research on concepts, tools and techniques for scientific and statistical database applications. The 24th SSDBM will provide a forum for original research contributions and practical system design, implementation and evaluation. The rich program of the research track will be supplemented with invited talks and panel sessions, as well as illustrated demonstrations of research prototypes and industrial systems.

SSDBM 2012 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 beautiful Chania, Crete.
