Call for Papers X I M E - P 2 0 0 6 3rd International Workshop on XQuery Implementation, Experience and Perspectives June 30, 2006 Collocated with ACM SIGMOD/PODS 2006, Chicago, USA http://www.ximep-2006.org/ XIME-P 2006 invites original research contributions as well as reports on industrial efforts on the implementation, utilization, and overall prospects of XQuery. Like the 2004 (Paris) and 2005 (Baltimore) editions of the XIME-P workshop series, XIME-P 2006 will be held just after and in cooperation with the ACM SIGMOD/PODS conference, this time in Chicago (IL), USA. Not too many weeks ago, the W3C XML Query Working Group published Candidate Recommendations for the XQuery specification family, and odds are that, after 8 years of work, XQuery will become a standard at around the time of SIGMOD 2006. In this landmark year for XQuery, the 3rd edition of the XIME-P workshop series will thus be an event of particular importance and visibility. One of the fascinating aspects of XQuery is that work on the language specification, its implementation, and its application is happening on the verge of databases, document processing, and programming languages. Computer science research and industry has thus found quite a number of promising -- and sometimes completely disjoint -- avenues to approach challenges in the XQuery domain. This ''heterogeneity'' in contributions and attendees has been a source of lively discussions, panels, and an interesting technical program for previous XIME-P editions. For 2006, we will try to underline this diversity. Since the language is approaching W3C Recommendation status, XIME-P 2006 explicitly welcomes contributions which relate to standards-compliant treatments of XQuery. Technically, this aspect can be challenging -- especially when conformance and efficiency seem to be at odds (when in reality they need not be). The XIME-P 2006 program will feature talks and panels on research as well as industrial efforts on the implementation and utilization of XQuery. We are delighted to report that Don Chamberlin, a lead in the W3C XQuery Working Group as well as one of the original designers of the SQL language, has agreed to give the XIME-P 2006 keynote speech. -- XIME-P 2006 Topics of Interest Topics of interest include the following (though interesting and/or innovative papers on all aspects of XQuery are welcome): - XQuery implementation paradigms: native, relational, streaming - XQuery over very large XML instances - Impact and implementation of static and dynamic typing - The role of validation in efficient XQuery processors - XQuery debugging (esp. declarative debugging techniques) - XQuery and computing in the sciences - XQuery as a programming language - Coherent XQuery subsets and embedded XQuery processors - Teaching XQuery (XQuery in curricula and courses in general) -- Paper Submission XIME-P 2006 calls for original contributions relevant to the open list of topics sketched above. We explicitly welcome reports on innovative, off-beat, and ''early stage'' approaches to the implementation and application of XQuery as long as the submission meets the high quality standards of the XIME-P workshop series. - Papers should be formatted according to the ACM guidelines and SIG proceedings templates available at http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html - Papers should not exceed 6 pages in length (including references and appendices). The mandatory submission file format is PDF. - More details on the submission process will be given on the XIME-P 2006 web site (www.ximep-2006.org) shortly. The primary publication medium for XIME-P has been and will be SIGMOD DiSC. This mode of publication ensures wide dissemination and high visibility (e.g., in the ACM Digital Library and Michael Ley's DBLP index). Online proceedings will additionally hosted at the workshop web site, www.ximep-2006.org. -- Important Dates - Paper submission: Mon, April 3, 2006 - Notification of acceptance: Mon, May 8, 2006 - Camera-ready papers due: Fri, May 26, 2006 - Workshop: Fri, June 30, 2006 -- XIME-P 2006 Co-Chairs - Mike Carey - Torsten Grust BEA Systems Inc.
