SCOPE OF THE CONFERENCE
Data Engineering deals with the modeling and structuring of data in
the development and use of information systems, as well as with
relevant aspects of computer systems and architecture. The Tenth Data
Engineering Conference will provide a forum for the sharing of
original research results and engineering experiences among
researchers and practitioners interested in automated data and
knowledge management. The purpose of the conference is to examine
problems facing the developers of future information systems, the
applicability of existing research solutions and the directions for
