In recent years it has become a tradition to dedicate one of the issues of the VLDB Journal to selected papers of the International Conference on Very Large Databases.

The program included 84 papers in all three tracks out of 457 submissions by about 1000 authors.

Papers were submitted from 38 countries. Extended versions of six selected papers are published in this special issue of the VLDB Journal....
