The XLDB series of workshops has been led by Jacek Becla at SLAC. The recent workshop XLDB4 experienced such a demand that we are, with Jacek's support, holding this satellite XLDB workshop in Europe between the annual workshops.

This workshop will bring together those with very demanding data challenges and those researchers and solution providers who are developing systems to address such challenges. We seek a balanced and stimulating discussion of The workshop will provide a meeting place for database researchers, for businesses with advanced solutions and for those from many research disciplines, industries and organisations who need to urgently address real data challenges.

The workshop is carefully timed to start immediatly after the final open Data-Intensive Research theme workshop and before the SIGMOD conference for those going to Athens from any other continent.
