PODS 2012 CALL FOR RESEARCH PAPERS

 

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 foundations of database systems (see http://www.sigmod.org/the-pods-pages).

Topics of Interest

Topics that fit the interests of the symposium include the following (as they pertain to databases):

 

  • languages for semi-structured data (including XML and RDF)
  • dynamic aspects of databases (updates, views, real-time and sensor data, approximate query answering, data streams)
  • incompleteness, inconsistency, and uncertainty in databases
  • schema and query extraction
  • data integration
  • data exchange
  • provenance
  • workflows
  • metadata management
  • meta-querying
  • constraints (specification, reasoning, mining, constraint databases)
  • privacy and security
  • model theory, logics, algebras and computational complexity
  • data modeling
  • data structures and algorithms for data management
  • design, semantics, and optimization of query and database languages
  • domain-specific databases (multi-media, scientific, spatial, temporal, text)

 

In addition, we especially welcome papers addressing emerging database environments and applications. An External Review Committee will assist in reviewing papers in several multi-disciplinary areas of particular interest to this edition of PODS — the areas of interest and names of External Review Committee members are listed futher below.

Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers should be at most twelve pages, including bibliography, using reasonable page layout and font size of at least 9pt (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 PC. Papers longer than twelve pages (excluding the appendix) or in font size smaller than 9pt risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Submitted papers should be at most twelve pages, including bibliography, using reasonable page layout and font size of at least 9pt (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 PC. Papers longer than twelve pages (excluding the appendix) or in font size smaller than 9pt risk rejection without consideration of their merits. The submission process will be through the Web at:http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pods2012

Note that, unlike the SIGMOD conference, PODS does not use double-blind reviewing, and therefore PODS submissions should have the names and affiliations of authors listed on the paper.

The results must be unpublished and not submitted elsewhere, including the formal proceedings of other symposia or workshops. Authors of an accepted paper will be expected to sign copyright release forms, and one author is expected to present it at the conference.

Important Dates

November 20, 2011: Research paper abstracts due
November 27, 2011: Research paper submissions due
February 15, 2012: Notification of acceptance

Awards

Best Paper Award: An award will be given to the best submission, as judged by the PC.

Best Student Paper Award: There will also be an award for the best submission, as judged by the PC, written exclusively by a student or students. An author is considered as a student if at the time of submission, the author is enrolled in a program at a university or institution leading to a doctoral/master’s/bachelor’s degree. More details concerning eligibility criteria are posted at the PODS pages (http://www.sigmod.org/sigmod/pods/index.html).
