The annual DaWaK conference is a high-quality forum for researchers, practitioners and developers in the field of Big Data Analytics, in a broad sense. The objective is to explore, disseminate and exchange knowledge in this field through scientific and industry talks. The conference covers all aspects of DaWaK research and practice, including data lakes (schema-free repositories), database design (data warehouse design, ER modelling), big data management (tables + text + files), query languages (SQL and beyond), parallel systems technology (Spark, MapReduce, HDFS), theoretical foundations and applications, bringing together active researchers from the database systems, cloud computing, programming languages and data science communities worldwide.

Authors are invited to electronically submit original research contributions or experience reports in English. DaWak will accept submissions of both short and full papers.
- Short papers: up to 10 pages on preliminary work, vision papers or industrial applications
- Full paper: up to 15 pages and papers are expected to be more mature, contain more theory or present a survey (tutorial style) of some interesting topic.
Any submission that significantly exceeds length limits or deviates from formatting requirements may be rejected without review. The submitted manuscript should closely reflect the final paper as it will appear in the Proceedings.
Formatting guidelines: http://www.dexa.org/formatting_guidelines
Online Papers Submission: to be announced

Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition.
Duplicate submissions are not allowed and will be rejected immediately without further review. 
Authors are expected to agree to the following terms: "I understand that the submission must not overlap substantially with any other paper that I am a co-author of or that is currently submitted elsewhere. Furthermore, previously published papers with any overlap are cited prominently in this submission."
Questions about this policy or how it applies to a specific paper should be directed to the PC Co-chairs.

Authors of selected papers presented at the conference will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for publication in:
Data & Knowledge Engineering, DKE, Elsevier

All accepted conference papers will be published in a volume of "Lecture Notes in Computer Science" (LNCS) by Springer Verlag. Authors of all accepted papers must sign a Springer copyright release form. Papers are accepted with the understanding that at least one author will register for the conference to present the paper. 
Authors of selected papers presented at the conference will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for publication in Data & Knowledge Engineering, DKE, Elsevier. The submitted extended versions will undergo a further review process. Both full and short papers have the opportunity to be invited for journal submission, based on the quality of the presentation at the conference.
