I C D T 2003
The 9th International Conference on Database Theory
Rettorato dell'Universita' di Siena, 
Siena, Italy, 8-10 January 2003

                                CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

The series of ICDT conferences provides a biennial, international
forum for the  communication of research  advances on the principles
of database systems. ICDT is  traditionally held in a historic
European city. ICDT  2003 will be held in Siena,  Italy. Siena is in
Toscana (Tuscany), a region of Italy, and one of the most  important
historical areas of the whole world. The capital of Toscana is Firenze
(Florence), which is only 70 km  away from Siena. The home page of the
conference is at http://www.dis.uniroma1.it/icdt03. 

The International Workshop on Data Quality in Cooperative Information
Systems (see  http://www.dis.uniroma1.it/~dq/dqcis/) will be held in
conjunction with ICDT 2003 (Siena, 10-11 January 2003).

registration, accomodation, and social program.
