SIGMOD 2020 Call for Papers - Industrial Track

The Industrial Track of SIGMOD 2020 covers all aspects of innovative commercial or industrial-strength data management systems and solutions. We also welcome novel real-world applications of data management systems and experience in applying recent research advances to real-world problems. We require that at least one of the authors has a non-academic affiliation.

Submission Guidelines

We accept full papers (up to 12 pages + references) and extended abstracts (up to 4 pages + references). The papers should be prepared using the latest standard ACM paper format (see detailed instructions below). Papers must be submitted electronically, in pdf format, by November 25, 2019, 5 PM Pacific Time at the conference submission site:

Submissions to the industrial track are required to include all author names and affiliations. Any changes to authorship after paper acceptance will require approval by the industrial track chairs. Authors are encouraged to contact the industrial track chairs if they need clarification regarding the suitability of their work to this track.

Important Dates

All deadlines below are 5 PM Pacific Time.


The ACM template changed in 2017. Make sure you are using the latest version. Industrial papers must follow the ACM Proceedings Format, using either the sample-sigconf.tex or Interim layout.docx template provided at for LaTeX (version 2e) or Word, respectively. The margins, inter-column spacing, and line spacing in the templates must be kept unchanged. Any submitted paper violating the length, file type, or formatting requirements will be rejected without review.

IMPORTANT: Please note that the research track of SIGMOD 2020 requires submissions to be in 10 point font. For the industrial track submissions, we use 9 point font, which is the standard font size of the ACM templates. Please DOUBLE CHECK that your submission is in 9 point font, otherwise it will be rejected without review.
