About the Conference

EDBT has established a prestigious tradition by organizing a leading international conference on databases, in Europe, every two years. The conference provides a unique opportunity for database researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore new ideas and exchange tools, techniques, and experiences.

The previous events were held in Venice (1988 and 1990), Vienna (1992), Cambridge (1994), Avignon (1996), and Valencia (1998). The Konstanz conference takes place at the onset of a new millenium and the information age in which databases and information systems play a central role. Therefore, EDBT 2000 will put special emphasis on this special theme:

Connect Millions of Users and Data Sources.

Program Committee
Conference Venue

It is the mood and the way of life of southern Europe which constitutes Konstanz' unique appeal. The metropolis at the Bodensee (Lake Constance) spoils its visitors with the lake's unique mediterranean and international flair. Konstanz provides an ideal starting point for outings to Switzerland, Austria, and Liechtenstein. The city stretches out over the narrow ridge of land between the upper and lower lakes and the river Rhine winds its way through the its center and flows on towards Schaffhausen.

Konstanz has an eventful medieval past as a domicile of bishops and kings, for which places and ancient buildings provide numerous evidences. The city most probably received its name Constantia when it was under Roman rule. Konstanz has managed almost completely to resist the destructive effects of war for centuries. EDBT 2000 will be held at the Konzil, which hosted the only council - the formal papal elections - north of the Alps (1414-1418). Located directly at the lake-side and originally built as a mercantile house, the Konzil nowadays serves as a concert hall and conference site.
