VLDB 2001: Information for sponsors

VLDB is a premier international conference on database technology, organized every year by the VLDB Endowment (http://www.vldb.org/). VLDB 2001 will be held in Rome, one of the most important historical cities in the world, with an incredible number of interesting monuments. Rome is the capital of a large industrialized country, which has significant activities in computing, including software companies, and many important users, It also has a long academic tradition, with various different database groups in university departments and research centres. VLDB usually draws 500-600 participants: in Rome, given that we have an attractive city, convenient transportation and an interested local community, we aim at an even higher figure: over 700.

We are actively encouraging sponsorships for the conference. There are three categories of sponsorship for the VLDB 2001 conference.

  • Contributor
  • Sponsor
  • Principal Sponsor

In each case, the sponsoring company is responsible for providing the artwork (company logo) to be included on the various publications and promotional material.

The sponsoring company may request their contribution to be associated with a specific conference item or event. However, sponsorship items will be allocated on a 'first come first served' basis.
