Call for Papers

DASFAA is an annual international database conference, which showcases state-of-the-art R&D activities in database systems and their applications. It provides a forum for technical presentations and discussions among database researchers, developers and users from academia, business and industry.

The 25th DASFAA will be held in Jeju, Korea on May 21-24, 2020. South Korea, the homeland of K-pop and peculiarly BTS, is the perfect venue for addressing contemporary database issues as new data-related technical trends have been arising out of Korea’s top-notch IT infrastructure and cultural dynamicity. Jeju island, centred with the tallest mountain in South Korea; Halla Mountain, is one of the most exceptional islands in the world to enjoy countless outdoor activities in diverse milieus alongside a variety of dining options. Noticeably, this scenic and volcanic island was selected as one of the new seven wonders of nature in 2011. Jeju International Airport is connected with over 100 flights per day from Seoul and is also linked with over 50 direct flights per day to international destinations in China, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand and Malaysia. Additionally, at less than 40 minutes by road from the airport is the conference venue, Seoguipo KAL hotel.

Authors should submit papers reporting original work that are currently not under review or published elsewhere. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. Submissions must not exceed 16 pages (including citations) in LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) format. We encourage authors to cite related work comprehensively, and when citing conference papers please also consider to cite their extended journal versions if applicable.

DASFAA 2020 will employ double-blind reviewing process, every research paper submitted to DASFAA 2019 will undergo a "double-blind" reviewing process: the PC members and referees who review the paper will not know the identity of the authors. To ensure anonymity of authorship, authors must prepare their manuscript as follows:

  • Author's names and affiliations must not appear on the title page or elsewhere in the paper.
  • Funding sources must not be acknowledged on the title page or elsewhere in the paper.
  • Research group members, or other colleagues or collaborators, must not be acknowledged anywhere in the paper.
  • Source file naming must also be done with care, to avoid identifying the author's names in the paper's associated metadata. For example, if your name is Jane Smith and you submit a PDF file generated from a .dvi file called Jane-Smith.dvi, your authorship could be inferred by looking into the PDF file.

It is the responsibility of authors to do their very best to preserve anonymity. Papers that do not follow the guidelines here, or otherwise potentially reveal the identity of the authors, are subject to immediate rejection. Because of the double blind review policy, the submission of an extended version of a short paper which has published elsewhere is strongly discouraged in DASFAA 2020.

Please use one of the following templates for the LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) format:

Any submitted paper violating the length, file type, or formatting requirements will be rejected without review. For any problems with the submission system, please contact the PC co-chairs directly.

Submitted papers will undergo a double-blind peer review process, coordinated by the International Program Committee.


The Program Chairs are soliciting contributed technical papers for presentation at the Conference and publication in the Conference Proceedings by Springer Verlag in the LNCS series.
