                        Call for Papers

		         I C D E - 11

      Eleventh International Conference on Data Engineering

                      March 6-10, 1995
                The Grand Hotel, Taipei, Taiwan
            Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society

Data Engineering deals with the modeling and structuring of data in
the development and use of information systems, as well as with
relevant aspects of computer systems and architecture.  The 11th Data
Engineering Conference will provide a forum for the sharing of
original research results and engineering experiences among
researchers and practitioners interested in automated data and
knowledge management.  The purpose of the conference is to examine
problems facing the developers of future information systems, the
applicability of existing research solutions and the directions for
new research.

Topics of Interest
The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

AI and Knowledge-Based Systems
Data Consistency, Integrity and Security
Data Modeling and Database Design
Data Structures and Access Methods
Engineering/Scientific Databases and Applications
Extensible and Active Databases
Heterogeneous Systems and Interoperability
Incomplete, Imprecise or Uncertain Information
Knowledge Discovery
Mobile and Personal Computing
Multimedia Databases
Object-Oriented Databases
Parallel and Distributed Databases
Query Languages and Optimization
Real-time Databases
Temporal and Spatial Databases
Transaction and Workflow Management
Tuning and Performance Evaluation

Paper Submission
Six copies of original papers not exceeding 6000 words (25 double spaced
pages) should be submitted by May 20, 1994 to:

America and Europe                 Far East, Australia and other areas

Authors should indicate one or two of the conference areas most
relevant to the submission.

There will be a series of sessions focused on issues relevant
to practitioners of DBMS technology. Each panel, industrial and
tutorial proposal should include a one-page description
on the subject matter and the name of the organizer, and for panels,
a list of proposed panelists.  Submissions should be addressed to
the Program Chairs,  who will forward them to the appropriate organizer.
