Welcome to VLDB 2022

VLDB is a premier annual international forum for data management, scalable data science and database researchers, vendors, practitioners, application developers, and users. The VLDB 2022 conference features more than 250 research talks, eleven keynote & invited talks, two panels, nine tutorials, over 40 demonstrations, and 10 workshops, including the VLDB PhD Workshop. It covers issues in data management, database architectures, graph data management, data privacy and security, data mining, machine learning, AI and database systems research - all essential technological cornerstones of the emerging applications of the 21st century.

VLDB 2022 took place in Sydney, Australia, from September 05 to September 09, 2022.
It was organised as a hybrid conference which includes both on-site and virtual activities, and which is open to both in-person and online participants and speakers. There was an online platform for VLDB 2022, DelegateConnect, where we lived-stream all sessions, and where you can interact with speakers, audiences and our sponsors via chats and Q&As. For in-person participants, there were many opportunities for learning, networking and serendipitous personal meetings, as well as the delights of the Sydney and waterfront location.

Online platform

All delegates (whether they are remote or coming in-person to Sydney) are encouraged to use the online platform (the delegates still available and you have access to all papers and session recordings in that platform for the next 21 months). As well as watching live stream of sessions, here one can interact with other delegates, connect to sponsors, and watch recordings of each session, starting from a day or so after the session, and maintained available for at least a month. If you go to this platform, you can login with the email address you used to register for the conference (the first time, you can just indicate "forgot password"). This is also where one can ask questions of a speaker, if you are not in the room at the venue in Sydney.

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.


In no event will members of the Organizing Committee of the 48th International Conference on Very Large Data Bases, or VLDB Endowment, Inc. or its members, trustees or representatives, be liable for any loss or damage arising from any of the events or activities in connection with this conference.
