The 2nd Workshop on Networking Meets Databases, NetDB'06, will bring together researchers in the networking and database communities. We are witnessing the blurring of the traditional boundaries between these two disciplines, most clearly in the emerging areas of peer-to-peer networks, sensor networks, and distributed information systems. The goal of the workshop is to promote discussion of ideas that will influence and foster continued research that draws heavily from both communities.

We encourage submissions across a broad range of topics that lie at the intersection of databases and networking,
specifically including peer-to-peer systems, sensor networks, widely-distributed query processing, data dissemination, and networked storage. Topics of interest in this context include, but are not limited to:

  • Architectures and applications for widely-distributed systems

  • Data analysis for network traffic estimation and security

  • Data mining and retrieval in widely-distributed systems

  • Data models, query models, and query languages for networking

  • Networked data placement and storage

  • Distributed data structures for data management

  • Distributed stream processing and dissemination

  • Dynamic schema integration in peer-to-peer networks

  • Indexing, caching, and replication techniques for wide-area storage

  • Query planning, execution, and optimization in networked systems

  • Transaction management for peer-to-peer networks

Submissions are expected to include components from both areas and will be judged primarily on their originality and potential to influence future research.
