Welcome to the home of the 30th International Conference on Scientific and Statistical Database Management, to be held in Bozen-Bolzano, Italy on July 9-11, 2018. The SSDBM international conference brings together scientific domain experts, database researchers, practitioners, and developers for the presentation and exchange of current research results on concepts, tools, and techniques for scientific and statistical database applications. The 30th SSDBM will provide a forum for original research contributions and practical system design, implementation and evaluation. The program of the research track will be supplemented with invited talks, panel sessions, case-study papers, and demonstrations of research prototypes and industrial systems. SSDBM 2018 will continue the tradition of past SSDBM meetings in providing a stimulating environment to encourage discussion, fellowship and exchange of ideas in all aspects of research related to scientific and statistical data management.
