SIGMOD 2016 Call for Demonstration Proposals
The SIGMOD demonstration program has become an important venue for sharing cutting-edge, prototype data management systems with the greater SIGMOD community. We solicit demonstration proposals that will showcase the most exciting new data management technologies. Demonstrations may consist of software, hardware, or both. The emphasis of the SIGMOD demonstration program is on visionary, next generation systems requiring significant research and development effort.
Selection of demonstrations for presentation at SIGMOD is highly competitive. The evaluation criteria includes both the audience experience and the novelty of the system. The proposal should also describe in detail what SIGMOD attendees who view the demonstration will experience. What exactly will the audience see? Will they be able to interact with the system? Is there an interesting scenario or script that the demonstrators will use to motivate the demonstration? Authors may include a description of the novel intellectual content of the underlying system and of its architecture. The demonstration proposal must include citations of the most relevant papers about the proposed system and any previous publications of that same system. Priority will be given to systems that have never been demonstrated before. One of the demonstrations will be selected to receive an award of Best Demo.
Demonstration proposals must be no more than FOUR 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 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 January 15, 2016 11:59pm PST (abstract submission is not required). Late proposals will not be considered. All submissions must be done electronically through https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/SIGD2016/. Please note that this is a different CMT site from the one for SIGMOD research and industry submissions.
Notifications for the accepted proposals will be sent by February 26th, 2016. Accepted proposals will appear in the final proceedings. The camera ready deadline is March 14, 2016 at 11:59pm PST.
