Call for Papers: SIGMOD Demonstration Track

The SIGMOD demonstration program has become a popular venue to demonstrate the utility of database research prototypes. Because of its continued success, the demonstration program has become highly selective and, therefore, well regarded. Demonstrations of innovative database system research are solicited, which illustrate research contributions in an interesting, intuitive, and interactive manner.

We solicit submissions that will demonstrate major, new, advances in the state-of-the-art of data management technologies. A demonstration proposal should differ from regular research papers in several important aspects. First, it should clearly describe the overall architecture of the system or technology demonstrated, without being a short research paper. Second, it should put great emphasis on the motivation, applications, and novelty of the presented system or technology. Third and importantly, it should clearly describe the demonstration scenario. In particular, it should clearly explain how the audience can interact with the demonstrated system, in order to obtain understanding of the underlying technology. For demonstrations running over the web, a back-up scenario should be described, in case of low connectivity at the demonstration venue.

Demonstration proposals must be no more than four (4) US letter pages in length. This page limit includes all parts of a proposal: title, abstract, body, and bibliography. The camera-ready of an accepted proposal must also observe the same page limit.

Demonstration proposals must adhere to the general SIGMOD formatting guidelines. Submissions to the demonstrations track are not subject to double blind reviewing. The author name(s) and affiliation(s) must be present in the submitted document. Any proposal violating the length, file type, or formatting requirements will be rejected without review.

The submission deadline is the same as for regular research papers (abstract submission is not required). Late proposals will not be considered. All submissions must be done electronically through the “demo track” in the main conference submission site:

Accepted proposals (once again, no more than three pages) will appear in the final proceedings. The camera-ready deadline is the same as for regular research papers.
