I took this text from the conference homepage:
VLDB is a premier annual international forum for data management and database researchers, vendors, practitioners, application developers, and users. The conference will feature research talks, tutorials, demonstrations, and workshops. It will cover current issues in data management, database and information systems research. Data management and databases remain among the main technological cornerstones of emerging applications of the twenty-first century.
I can’t think of a better summary of the papers, tutorials, etc., that you will find here.
I could easily lose the better part of a week just skimming abstracts.
