We invite submissions of original research papers to the volume 8 of Proceedings of the VLDB Endowment (PVLDB). Accepted papers will form the Research Track for the 2015 VLDB conference.

The annual VLDB conference is a premier annual international forum for database researchers, vendors, practitioners, application developers, and users. PVLDB, established in 2008, is a scholarly journal for short and timely research papers, with a journal-style review and quality-assurance process. PVLDB is distinguished by a monthly submission process with rapid reviews. PVLDB issues are published regularly throughout the year. Your paper will appear in PVLDB soon after acceptance, and possibly in advance of the VLDB conference. All papers accepted in time (see details on this below) will both be published in PVLDB Vol. 8 and presented at the VLDB 2015 conference. At least one author of every submitted paper is expected to attend the VLDB conference if the paper is accepted.

PVLDB is the only submission channel for research papers to appear in the VLDB 2015 conference. More information on the submission guidelines and processes for this track may be found below. The submission process of other VLDB 2015 tracks in general differs and is described in the respective calls for papers.

To submit a paper, follow the submission guidelines, and choose the research track for the correct month.  Then carefully choose the subject area(s) that best describe the paper.  The areas indicated impact the choice of both associate editors (AEs) and reviewers.

VLDB 2015 solicits different types of papers for the research track:
