VLDB 2022: Overview

VLDB is a premier annual international forum for data management and database researchers, vendors, practitioners, application developers, and users. The VLDB 2022 conference will feature research talks, tutorials, demonstrations, and workshops. It will cover issues in data management, database and information systems research, since they are the technological cornerstones of the emerging applications of the 21st century.

VLDB 2022 will take place in Sydney, Australia, from September 05 to September 09, 2022.

Hybrid conference: as borders reopen, we are looking forward to many people coming to Sydney to experience the unique advantages of in-person conference participation. There will be many opportunities for learning, networking and serendipitous personal meetings, as well as the delights of the Sydney and waterfront location. However, for those unable to travel, VLDB2022 will have a hybrid nature. Remote participation will be possible for authors and audience in technical sessions, and there will also be support for online networking and conversation.

VLDB 2022: Diversity and Inclusion Policy

The VLDB diversity and inclusion initiative aims to guide researchers in our community to adopt a more inclusive mindset in general toward different individuals regardless of their age, gender, gender identity, race, cultural background, religion, physical and mental ability, sexual orientation, parental and marital status, etc. The initiative introduces several efforts to be more inclusive and equitable during our conference. Such efforts include, but are not limited to, providing an option for disability and special-needs during registration and the necessary follow-up after registration, facilitating parenting support and child care, organizing a mentorship lunch to foster interactions between senior and junior researchers, collecting and presenting examples of discriminatory behavior and language, encouraging the organization of a panel on minority experiences such as being female, junior, and belonging to a different ethnic/religious group, setting up a reporting board to list up concerns, suggestions, personal stories especially from minorities, and gathering feedback from attendees.
The Diversity and Inclusion co-chairs this year are Gill Dobbie (University of Auckland) and Shazia Sadiq (University of Queensland). This initiative is in collaboration with VLDB DBCares team following the ACM Policy Against Harassment and ACM processes for Reporting Unacceptable Behavior. Any participant who experiences abuse, discrimination, or harassment may contact any current member of the VLDB Executive Committee or DBCares. Please be assured that if you approach us, your concerns will be kept in strict confidence, and we will consult with you on any actions taken.
