SIGMOD Call for Demo Proposals

The SIGMOD Demonstrations program is an exciting and highly interactive way to demonstrate your database systems research. Because of its continued success, the demo program has become increasingly competitive and well respected. Proposals of innovative database system research are solicited. We encourage submissions that describe how the demonstration system illustrates research contributions.

Submission Guidelines

Submission Deadline

The deadline for demo proposals submission is Wednesday November 17th 2004, 8:59 PM PST. Papers must be submitted electronically through the submission site.

Only demo proposals submitted through the official submission site prior to November 17th at 8:59 PM will be considered for SIGMOD '05.

The submission site for demo proposals is:

Content, Length, and Formatting

It is the author's responsibility to make the submitted demo proposal is readable, relevant, and interesting, before submission and consideration by referees. This requirement includes legibility of diagrams and quality of English.

Length: All submitted papers must be formatted according to the instructions below, and must be no more than four (4) US letter pages. This page limit includes all parts of the paper: title, abstract, body, and bibliography.

File type: Papers are to be submitted as a single PDF file, formatted for 8.5" x 11" paper. It is essential that submitted papers print without difficulty on a variety of printers, using Adobe Acrobat Reader. It is the absolute responsibility of the authors to ensure that their submitted PDF file will print easily on simple default configurations.

Formatting: Papers must use the ACM proceedings format, using one of the templates listed at the ACM SIG Proceedings Templates web site. Templates are available in Word, WordPerfect, and LaTeX (versions 2.09 and 2e). For the LaTeX formats, you may use either the standard style or the SIG-alternate style. Note: Although the ACM templates include headings for "Categories and Subject Descriptors," "General Terms," and "Keywords," these are not used by SIGMOD and can be omitted from your submitted demo proposal. Any submitted demo proposal violating the length, file type, or formatting requirements will be rejected without review.

Accepted demo proposals (one-page in length) will appear in the final proceedings and are due by March 23, 2005.
