Contributions are solicited for the following categories:

  • full research papers describing research accomplishments (up to 15 pages),
  • short communications (experience reports, project overviews, etc.) (up to 8 pages),
  • doctoral student papers (for the Doctoral Consortium, up to 8 pages).

All submissions will be evaluated (originality, validity, contribution, technical quality, and presentation) by at least three members of the international programme committee. The programme committee may decide to accept a submission as a short communication if it reports interesting results, ideas, or experiences, but could not be selected as a full paper.

Research papers must be original contributions and must not be accepted or submitted elsewhere until the decisions of the Baltic DB&IS’2018 programme committee are announced. At least one author of every accepted submission is obliged to register and attend the conference.

Full research papers are planned to be published by Springer in the series Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS), indexed by SCOPUS and submitted for indexation in Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index. Post-conference proceedings of selected and extended papers will be published by IOS Press in the series Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence and Applications as Open Access EBook, indexed by SCOPUS and Web of Science.

Short communications will be submitted for online publication as CEUR Workshop proceedings. Best selected short papers will be published by Springer and IOS Press.

Full research papers and short communications should be prepared according to the Author Guidelines and submitted electronically via the EasyChair Conference System at

PhD students are invited to submit papers describing their current work. See Information about Doctoral Consortium.
