SIGMOD 2020 Call For Workshop Proposals

We invite proposals for workshops to be collocated with the SIGMOD/PODS 2020 conference. Workshops will run on June 14 and June 19, and can last for half a day or a full day.

Logistics and Organizational Support

The organizers of accepted workshops are required to announce the workshop and call for papers, solicit submissions, conduct the reviewing process, and decide on the final workshop program that must be published at least two weeks before the early registration deadline. In addition, each workshop must prepare its own proceedings. The publishing company is at the discretion of the workshop chairs, but all proceedings must be submitted for inclusion in the ACM Digital Library. Publication of calls for papers and participation as well as eventual workshop reports in SIGMOD Record are encouraged.

The logistics of the workshops will be handled by the SIGMOD 2020 organization. Specifically, the SIGMOD 2020 local organization chairs will work with workshop chairs individually to take care of facilities, catering, and registration for all workshops. To enable this, breaks will be coordinated.

Each workshop receives two free registrations, which are typically used for keynote or invited speakers; the recipients of the free registrations are at the discretion of the workshop chairs, who are requested to send the recipients' names and contact information to the SIGMOD 2020 local organization and registration chairs. If workshops are able to attract sufficient sponsorship (see below) to not require the free registrations, that would be highly encouraged, but not necessary.

Submission Guidelines

Proposal evaluation criteria include the following: relevance to SIGMOD, scientific quality, perceived interest (e.g., previous submission counts), past performance (e.g., publication of the proceedings in the ACM DL), diversity considerations, long-term vision, and overlap with other proposals. Workshop proposals and further inquiries should be sent to the SIGMOD 2020 Workshop chairs:

Important Dates

All deadlines are at 5PM Pacific Daylight Time.
