CALL FOR PAPERS 27th ACM SIGMOD-SIGACT-SIGART Symposium on PRINCIPLES OF DATABASE SYSTEMS (PODS 2008) June 9-11, 2008, Vancouver, Canada

http://www.sigmod08.org/

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 27th 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):

algorithms;
complexity;
computational model theory;
concurrency;
constraints;
data exchange;
data integration;
data mining;
data modeling;
data on the Web;
data streams;
data warehouses;
distributed databases;
information retrieval;
knowledge bases;
logic;
multimedia;
physical design;
privacy;
quantitative approaches;
query languages;
query optimization;
real-time data;
recovery;
scientific data;
security;
semantic Web;
semi-structured data;
spatial data;
temporal data;
transactions;
updates;
views;
Web services;
workflows;
XML. Important Dates:

Short abstracts due : November 28, 2007
Paper submission    : December 5, 2007
Notification        : February 26, 2008
Camera-ready copy   : March 20, 2008


Submission Guidelines:

Submitted papers should be at most ten pages, using reasonable page layout and font size of at least 10pt (note that the SIGMOD style file does not have to be followed). 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 submission process will be through the Web; a link to the submission website will appear on the conference website in due time. Note that, unlike the SIGMOD conference, PODS does not use double-blind reviewing, and therefore PODS submissions should be eponymous (i.e., the names and affiliations of authors should be listed on the paper).

The results must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere, including the proceedings of other symposia or workshops.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.

Awards:

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.
