The main objective of the ADBIS series of conferences is to provide a forum

for the dissemination of research accomplishments and to promote

interaction and collaboration between the database and information system

research communities from European countries and the rest of the world.

The ADBIS conferences provide an international platform for the presentation

of research on database theory, development of advanced DBMS

technologies, and their advanced applications.


The 21st edition of the conference will be held in Nicosia, Cyprus. Nicosia (or

Leukosia) is the largest city on the island of Cyprus. It is the capital and seat

of the government of the Republic of Cyprus, and as such is the farthest

south-east of all EU member states' capitals. Apart from its legislative and

administrative functions, Nicosia has established itself as the island's

financial capital and its main international business centre. It is also a centre

of culture in Cyprus. The Cyprus Museum in Nicosia is the largest and oldest

archaeological museum in Cyprus. In the beautiful old city of Nicosia, the

Ethnological Museum is the most important example of urban architecture of

the last century of Ottoman domination which survives in old Nicosia.


The conference venue is the well known 5* hotel, Hilton Cyprus Hotel. Hilton

Cyprus is the only five-star hotel in Nicosia and counts 40 years of operation.

Just 35 minutes from Larnaca International Airport, 1 hour and 36 minutes

from Paphos International Airport and only 10 minutes walking distance from

the city centre, shopping and entertainment areas; conveniently located next

to the business district. The hotel's guest facilities and services include a

Business Centre, hairdresser & barber, bookshop, bank, taxi and car-hire

services and free car-parking facilities.


The program of ADBIS 2017 includes keynotes, research papers, thematic

workshops, and a Doctoral Consortium. The conference attracted 107 paper

submissions from 38 countries from many continents. After rigorous

reviewing by the Program Committee, the 26 papers included in the LNCS

proceedings volume were accepted as full contributions, making an

acceptance rate of 24%. Springer sponsored the ADBIS 2017 best paper

award. Furthermore, the Program Committee selected 12 more papers as

short contributions. 


Besides the main conference event, ADBIS 2017 features four workshops

(BigNovelTI, AMSD, SW4CH and DaS) and a Doctoral Consortium as Satellite

Events. The four workshops have accepted 25 papers and the DC has

accepted 3 papers.


Short papers, workshop papers, and a paper on Contributions from the ADBIS 

2017 workshops are published in a companion volume entitled "New Trends

in Databases and Information Systems" in the Springer series 

"Communications in Computer and Information Science". The selected papers

span a wide spectrum of topics in databases and related technologies,

tackling challenging problems and presenting inventive and efficient

solutions.
