SIGMOD Call for Industrial Presentations

The industrial track of SIGMOD 2010 will be the forum for high quality presentations on innovative commercial software for all facets of information technology solving significant information management problems. The topics include innovations in commercial database management and middleware systems including information integration and warehousing, cloud computing platforms and applications, benchmarking, as well as significant applications leveraging database and information retrieval technology. Submissions that do not relate to commercial software or industrial-strength software intended for wide use are discouraged. Acceptance criteria will be innovativeness of software and the potential of impact.

We invite proposals for individual talks for the industrial track to be submitted electronically via the industrial track submission website. The industrial track committee will contact potential speakers upon review of proposals for further details and evaluation. Invitation for a talk may or may not result in a paper published in the conference proceedings. This decision will be at the discretion of the industrial track PC. We also invite proposals for entire sessions to be sent by email to the Industrial Program Chair. Such proposals should be about a coherent theme of relevance to the data management industry and identify the speakers in the session.

Industrial Track talk proposals may be either full-length papers or extended abstracts of 1-2 pages. Reviews will not be provided for talk proposals. Accepted full-length submissions will result in the inclusion of a full paper in the proceedings as well as an industrial talk at the conference. Accepted extended abstract submissions will lead to an industrial talk but only to an extended abstract in the proceedings. The Industrial Track Program Committee welcomes both types of submissions in order to encourage industrial authors to contribute technically to the proceedings but to not discourage industrial talk proposals from individuals who cannot afford the commitment of writing a full paper.

The deadline for the submissions is November 5, 2009. Submissions should be uploaded through the submission site at:
