SIGMOD Call For Papers (PDF)
The annual ACM SIGMOD conference is a leading forum for database
researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore
cutting-edge ideas and to exchange techniques, tools, and
experiences. We invite the submission of original research
contributions and industrial papers, as well as proposals for
panels, tutorials, and demonstrations. We encourage submissions
relating to all aspects of data management defined broadly; and
particularly encourage work on topics of emerging interest in the
research and development communities.

Research papers will be judged for quality and relevance
through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the
authors are withheld from the reviewers (this does NOT include
industrial papers, or panel, tutorial and demo proposals).
Thus, authors names and affiliations must not appear in the paper
and bibliographic references must be made in such a way as to
preserve author anonymity. Detailed submission instructions appear
on the Submission Guidelines For Research Papers
page. All submissions will be handled electronically.
The industrial track of SIGMOD 2003 will be the forum for high
quality presentations on innovative commercial software for all
facets of information technology with emphasis on database systems
and information retrieval systems. These include significant
applications leveraging database technology and information
retrieval, innovations in commercial database management systems
software and middleware, and benchmarking. Submissions that do not
relate to commercial software (or industrial-strength prototypes in
wide use) are discouraged. Unlike research track, minimal or no
reviews of submissions will be provided to authors during notification.
Acceptance criteria will be innovativeness of software and the potential
of impact. For submission of industrial track papers as well as for the
conference proceedings, the number of pages must be limited to 5 in the
Camera Ready Copy format. For details see
Submission Guidelines For Industrial Papers.
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 Submission Guidelines For Tutorials.
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.
The Demos program has become rich and competitive in the recent years. Demos
of large and innovative systems are solicited. Submit up to 4 pages in
electronic form to the Demonstrations Chair. Demonstration proposals will
be evaluated and selected by the demonstration/exhibit program evaluation
committee. 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
Submission Guidelines For Demos. Other
arrangements necessary to perform the demonstrations, will be made after
communication with the Local Demonstrations Chair.
Successful panels require a bit of thought and planning. For some
snippets of advice for panel proposals that were gleaned from recent
experience, see Submission Guidelines For Panels.
