SCOPE
=====

A distinguished history of  20 years has established  VLDB at the center  of
the international data base community.  It is one of the oldest  established
forums of discussion in  the international database  community and,  without
doubt, one of the most eminent.

VLDB'94 is to  take place in Santiago, Chile, a hospitable modern  capital
city landmarked by the Mapocho river and the impressive heights of the Andes
mountains.

We invite  you to submit papers  reporting recent research results in  the
general field of  databases.   In  addition,  to mark  the 20th  anniversary
of VLDB special efforts  are being made  to further the  goal of leading  in
reporting and stimulating  new research  directions.   To  this purpose,  we
solicit papers and  panel proposals  on speculative  and futuristic  topics.
We also encourage papers on  novel and challenging applications of  database
technology in designing and building complex information systems.

A  new aspect  of the  conference is  the industrial  cases program.    We
encourage submission of  papers describing work  of significant interest  to
industry, particularly  in areas  providing interesting  directions for  the
development of databases.  We seek to provide a forum to discuss experiences
in applying databases to real life situations.  In the evaluation of  papers
submitted to this program,  the committee  will consider novelty,  technical
quality and  the value  of  reported results  to developers  of  information
systems.

A  high-quality  tutorial program  will be  offered  in both  English  and
Spanish.
