In Big Data Era, mobile apps, cars, GPS devices, UAVs, ships, airplanes, space telescopes, medical devices, industrial and scientific equipment, transactional and administrtive applications, IoT devices, the Web and social networking (among others) act as sources of explosive amounts of dynamic data to be modeled, stored, queried, processed, governed and analyzed for satisfying modern and emerging application needs.

Parallel computing (multicore CPUs, GPUs, parallel programming paradigms and frameworks), distributed computing (computer clusters, grid computing, cloud computing, distributed programming paradigms and frameworks), parallelism of storage devices (RAID, Flash Memory-Based Solid-State Drives) and fast networking infrastructures permit the development of Parallel and/or Distributed Databases that support such application needs.

The purpose of this session is to act as a forum where recent advances in Parallel and/or Distributed Databases will be presented and discussed by researchers and advanced practioners.


Contributors are invited to submit applied and basic research papers, as well as, position papers addressing topics related to Parallel and/or Distributed Databases, including, but not limited to, the following:
