SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS 26th ACM SIGMOD-SIGACT-SIGART Symposium on PRINCIPLES OF DATABASE SYSTEMS (PODS 2007) June 11-13, 2007, Beijing, China
The PODS symposium series, held in conjunction with the SIGMOD conference series, provides a premier annual forum for the communication of new advances in the theoretical foundation of database systems. For the 26th edition, original research papers providing new insights in the specification, design, or implementation of data management tools are called for. Topics that fit the interests of the symposium include the following (as they pertain to databases):
computational model theory;
data on the Web;
XML. Important Dates:
Short abstracts due : 28 November 2006 Paper submission : 5 December 2006 Notification : 26 February 2007 Camera-ready copy : 20 March 2007
Papers should be at most ten pages, using reasonable page layout and font size of at least 10pt. Additional details may be included in an appendix, which, however, will be read at the discretion of the program committee. Papers longer than ten pages or in font size smaller than 10pt risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
The results must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere, including the proceedings of other symposia or workshops. All authors of accepted papers will be expected to sign copyright release forms. One author of each accepted paper will be expected to present it at the conference.
Best Paper Award: An award will be given to the best submission, as judged by the program committee.
Best Newcomer Award: There will also be an award for the best submission, as judged by the program committee, written solely by authors who have never published in earlier PODS proceedings.
The program committee reserves the right to give both awards to the same paper, not to give an award, or to split an award among several papers. Papers authored or co-authored by PC members are not eligible for an award.
