SIGMOD Submission Guidelines For Tutorials

Tutorial proposals must clearly identify the intended audience and any prerequisite knowledge for attendees. Proposals must be no more than five pages, and must include enough material to provide a sense of both the scope of material to be covered and the depth to which it will be covered. Submissions for refereeing and final copy for the proceedings must be laid out according to the Camera Ready Copy format. For details see Camera-Ready Copy Formatting Instructions below. The proposal should also indicate the tutorial length (1.5 or 3 hours) and identify any other venues in which the tutorial has been or will be presented.

Send your submission electronically (PDF format) to by November 8th (5:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time).

Please include a brief (no more than 3 sentences) professional biography.

Camera-Ready Copy Formatting Instructions

Here are guidelines for formatting and submission of your papers. This year, all submissions to SIGMOD will be in the camera-ready format. 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 submitted 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.
