Successful demo proposals are expected to provide one page of description for the electronic and printed proceedings, by the camera-ready due date (March 10th, 2003). For details see Camera-Ready Copy Formatting Instructions below. Other arrangements necessary to perform the demonstrations, will be made after communication with the Local Demonstrations Chair.

Camera-Ready Copy Formatting Instructions

Here are guidelines for formatting your papers. The page format must be double-column and single-spaced in 9pt or larger font.

Please submit a PDF version of your manuscript, formatted for 8 1/2" x 11" paper, following the ACM proceedings formats referenced at the end of this paragraph. Proceedings templates are available in Word, WordPerfect, and LaTeX (v. 2.09 and 2e). These templates are located at: For the LaTeX formats, you may use either the standard style or the SIG-alternate style, which is more efficient.

Note: Although the ACM templates include headings for "Categories and Subject Descriptors," "General Terms," and "Keywords," these are not used by SIGMOD and can be omitted from your submitted paper.

Papers must be in PDF. It is essential that they print without difficulty on a variety of printers using Adobe Acrobat Reader. Therefore, authors must be sure that any special fonts are included, etc. It is the absolute responsibility of the authors to ensure that their paper is in PDF and will print easily.

Authors of accepted papers will need to sign an ACM copyright release form and present their paper at the conference.
