PODS 2020 CALL FOR RESEARCH PAPERS

The Principles of Database Systems (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 data management, traditional or nontraditional (see https://databasetheory.org/PODS).

Topics of Interest

For the 39th edition, PODS continues to aim to broaden its scope, and calls for research papers providing original, substantial contributions along one or more of the following tracks:

Topics that fit the interests of the symposium include, but are not limited to:

Submission Format

Submitted papers must be formatted using the standard ACM proceedings stylesheet (https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template)Submitted papers should be at most twelve pages, including bibliography. Additional details may be included in an appendix that should be incorporated at the submission time (online appendices are not allowed). However, such appendices will be read at the discretion of the program committee. Papers that are longer than twelve pages (including bibliography but excluding the appendix) or do not cohere with the ACM proceedings style risk rejection without consideration of their merits. PODS 2020 specifically encourages the submission of shorter papers as well as papers that make use of the full page allowance. The submission process will be through the Web at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pods2020. Note that 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The results of a submitted paper must be unpublished and not submitted elsewhere, including the formal proceedings of other symposia or workshops.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.

Awards

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

Best Student Paper Award: There will also be an award for the best submission, as judged by the program committee, written by a student or exclusively by 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. 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 program committee members are not eligible for an award.
