                         CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

                      20th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
                          VERY LARGE DATA BASES

                          September 12-15, 1994
                     Holiday Inn Crowne Plaza Hotel
                             Santiago, CHILE

Welcome to  Santiago!    A  distinguished  history  of  twenty 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
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.
Like  its  predecessors,   VLDB'94   will  bring   together  researchers,
developers and  users of  database management  systems from  academia and
industry to share information and explore  recent developments and future
directions in the field of database management.
This year's conference features  research papers, industrial  cases and a
number of tutorials offered by leading researchers in the field.
Plan now to attend this exciting event!

Location.     Santiago,  the  capital  city  of  Chile,  is  the  largest
metropolitan area in the country, with over five million inhabitants.  It
is the political,  administrative, business  and financial center  of the
country.   Located in  a valley at  the feet  of the Andes  mountains, it
is only 100  kilometers away from  the sea,  and just 50  kilometers from
ski centers.  Santiago  is a city that  combines modern architecture with
landmarks dating from Colonial times.
The conference will  be held  at the  Holiday Inn  Crowne Plaza  Hotel, a
modern hotel located in downtown  Santiago.  Many  attractions are within
walking distance, and the hotel is located very close to a Metro station.
The Metro (underground) is fast,  clean and safe, and  it is a convenient
way to reach the  shopping and restaurant district  of Providencia, where
the other conference hotels are located.
