DBPL 2013

The 14th International Symposium on Database Programming Languages


Riva del Garda, Trento, Italy
August 30, 2013
co-located with VLDB 2013


Welcome to DBPL 13

For over 25 years, DBPL has established itself as the principal venue for publishing and discussing new ideas at the intersection of databases and programming languages. Many key contributions in query languages for object-oriented data, persistent databases, nested relational data, and semistructured data, as well as fundamental ideas in types for query languages, were first announced at DBPL. Today, the emergence of new data management applications such as cloud computing and “big data,” social network analysis, bidirectional programming, and data privacy has lead to a new flurry of creative research in this area, as well as a tremendous amount of activity in industry. DBPL is an established destination for such new ideas.

The 14th Symposium on Data Base Programming Languages (DBPL 2013) continues the tradition of excellence initiated by its predecessors in Roscoff, Finistere (1987), Salishan, Oregon (1989), Nafplion, Argolida (1991), Manhattan, New York (1993), Gubbio, Umbria (1995), Estes Park, Colorado (1997), Kinloch Rannoch, Scotland (1999), Marino, Rome (2001), Potsdam, Germany (2003), Trondheim, Norway (2005), Vienna, Austria (2007), Lyon, France (2009), and Seattle, Washington (2011). DBPL has been affiliated with VLDB since 1999.

The proceedings are now available online.
