iDB Workshop 2011 is a workshop for young researchers working on databases, the World Wide Web and information management systems. In the workshop, prominent researchers from around the world will participate as mentors, and the authors of submitted papers can get valuable comments to their research work from the mentors.

Since participants are asked to sign Non-disclosure Agreement (NDA), the authors are free to submit the same content to other journals or international conferences. Lectures by the mentors are being planned also.

Let's brush up your research work with the help from the mentors and challenge the top-level conferences!
