International Conference on Object Databases (ICOODB) http://www.odbms.org/blog/2009/05/international-conference-on-object/ http://www.odbms.org/blog/2009/05/international-conference-on-object/#comments Tue, 19 May 2009 00:50:00 +0000 http://www.odbms.org/odbmsblog/2009/05/19/international-conference-on-object-databases-icoodb/ I`d like to inform you that the ICOODB 2009 registration has opened. The conference will take place on 1-3 July 2009 at ETH Zurich in Zurich, Switzerland.
“Registration can be done at the conference Web site.

ICOODB 2009 is the second in a series of international conferences aimed at promoting the exchange of information and ideas between members of the object database community.

A key feature of the conference is its goal to bring together developers, users and researchers. At the same time, the conference aims to meet the needs of the different sub-communities. The conference therefore consists of three different tracks offered as a tutorial day, an industry day and a research day.

Here are some highlights:

One Day Tutorial Introduction to Object Databases by Rick Cattell together with leading technical experts from vendors: Robert Greene (Versant), Leon Guzenda (Objectivity), Adrian Marriott (Progress/ObjectStore) and Patrick Roemer (Versant/db4o).

3 Half-Day Tutorials on Couch DB (Jan Lehnardt), Converting EERM into ODMG’s ODL Constructs (Joseph Vella), and Using C# for .Net with an ODBMS (Nic Caine and Leon Guzenda).

Keynote: “How Far OODBMS’s Have Come and a Look into their Future” by Jochen Witte and Robert Greene, Versant

Industry Day with 14 presentations and a Panel “A New Renaissance for ODBMSs ?”

Research Day including 9 research presentations

Demo Session

Awards for the best persistent patterns on July 2.

New Section to ODBMS.ORG: Persistent Patterns http://www.odbms.org/blog/2009/05/new-section-to-odbmsorg-persistent/ http://www.odbms.org/blog/2009/05/new-section-to-odbmsorg-persistent/#comments Fri, 08 May 2009 06:24:00 +0000 http://www.odbms.org/odbmsblog/2009/05/08/new-section-to-odbms-org-persistent-patterns/ I have added a new Section to ODBMS.ORG called “Persistent Patterns”. It lists Common Persistent Model Patterns.

You can already download the first Patterns at the “Persistent Patterns” Section

Hope you`ll find the patterns interesting and useful!

If you wish to take part to the Awards for the best Persistent Patterns, the deadline for sending your submissions is May 29, 2009.
After that there will be a Public Voting between May 30- June 20, 2009.
The Awards for the patterns which receive the highest votes will be announced on June 25, 2009, and the Awards ceremony will take place at Icoodb2009 in Zurich, on July 2, 2009.

Common Persistent Model Patterns for Performance and/or Scalability Optimization: Call for Submissions. http://www.odbms.org/blog/2009/03/common-persistent-model-patterns-for/ http://www.odbms.org/blog/2009/03/common-persistent-model-patterns-for/#comments Fri, 13 Mar 2009 00:44:00 +0000 http://www.odbms.org/odbmsblog/2009/03/13/common-persistent-model-patterns-for-performance-andor-scalability-optimization-call-for-submissions/ Here is a new project I would like to start for ODBMS.ORG: It is common practice that some database designers treat an Object Database (ODB) like a Relational Database (RDB). That is they are very query intensive rather than model intensive in their design.

Some designers start with a “relational” model, and then adjust it to a model that is more “ODB-oriented”, or closer to their problem domain, in order to get better results. This task is difficult.

To help developers in their design task, ODBMS.ORG would like to report “common persistent model patterns for performance and/or scalability optimization.”

We therefore invite both vendors and Application architects, Enterprise architects, Developers who use databases to submit implementation techniques (database design patterns) which are generally useful for all adopters.

The best submissions will be published in a new series of reports in ODBMS.ORG. All submissions will be published under free software licenses.

Moreover, ODBMS.ORG will give an Award for the most valuable pattern as voted by the ODBMS.ORG community.

Submission modalities:
Submissions should be sent as reports in .pdf only. Submissions will be considered only if indicating the name of the auhor(s) (or team), affiliation, complete address, and e-mail.
If the submission includes some actual software, you should *before* contact me to verify the modality of the submission.
Please send your submission by e-mail to: editor at odbms dot org

Important Dates:
Deadline for submissions: May 29, 2009
Public Voting: between May 30- June 20, 2009
Awards for the pattern which receives the highest votes: June 25, 2009
