New Trends in Databases and Information Systems: Contributions from ADBIS 2017 Workshops
In the last few years, research on database and information system technologies has been rapidly evolving thanks to the new paradigms of software and hardware adopted by modern scientific and more invasive applications. A huge and heterogeneous amount of data should be efficiently stored, managed, and analyzed exploiting proper technologies for such novel and more interesting data-driven applications. New and cutting-edge research challenges arise that have been attracting great attention from both academia and industry. The 21st European Conference on Advances in Databases and Information Systems (ADBIS 2017), held on September 24–27, 2017 in Nicosia, Cyprus includes four thematic workshops covering some emerging issues concerning such new trends in database and information system research. The aim of this paper is to present such events, their motivations and topics of interest, as well as briefly outline their programs including interesting keynotes, invited papers and a wide range of research, application, and industrial contributions selected for presentations. The selected papers have been included in this volume.
