Software Demonstrations

Hands On!

Database research has always also been about systems building and experimental study. The EDBT 2000 Software Demonstrations track provides evidence of how exciting systems building can be. Be sure not to miss the practitioners!

The EDBT 2000 demo track will run all-day in parallel to the core conference paper sessions. A schedule providing details on when and where the different demos are on stage will be posted here in time. A report containing concise surveys of all software demonstrations will be distributed at the conference.
