PODS Call For Papers (PDF)
22nd ACM SIGACT-SIGMOD-SIGART Symposium on Principles of Database Systems (PODS)
The symposium invites papers on fundamental aspects of databases.
Original research papers on the theory, design, specification, or
implementation of databases are solicited. Papers emphasizing new
topics or foundations of emerging areas are especially welcome.
The symposium will be held in Town and Country Hotel in San Diego,
in conjunction with the ACM SIGMOD International Conference on
Management of Data (SIGMOD), and as part of the Federated
Computing Research Conference (FCRC'03).

Titles and short abstracts: Authors are required to submit
a paper title and short abstract about 100 words
their paper (see the important dates).
Papers: The address, telephone number, FAX number, and
e-mail address of the contact author should appear on the title
page of the submission. Submissions should be limited to 10 pages
(with font size at least 11 pts) and may consist of extended
abstracts. Each submission must provide sufficient detail to allow
the program committee to assess its merits and should include
appropriate references to and comparisons with the literature.
It is recommended that each submission begins with a succinct
statement of the problem, a summary of the main results, and a
brief explanation of their significance and relevance to the
conference, all suited for the non-specialist. Technical
development of the work, directed to the specialist, should follow.
If the authors believe more details are necessary to substantiate
the main claims of the paper, they may include a clearly marked
appendix to be read at the discretion of the committee.
Paper titles and short abstracts (about 100 words) should be
received by the PC Chair on or before November 15, 2002. Papers
are due on November 22, 2002. These are firm deadlines.
There will be no exceptions.
Electronic and hard copy submissions are accepted. Note that for
accepted papers, an electronic version of the final paper is
required by the camera-ready copy due date.
Electronic submission of both short abstracts and papers is
strongly preferred. Instructions for electronic submissions are
posted on PODS Paper Submission Instructions page.
Publication of papers: Please note that papers will be
released to the public shortly after the camera-ready deadline.
Issues involving patents or confidentiality will have to be
resolved by that deadline.
Best Newcomer Award: An award will be given to the best
submission, as judged by the program committee, written solely by
authors who have never published in earlier PODS proceedings.
Best Paper Award: There will also be an award for the best
of all papers submitted, as judged by the program committee.
The program committee reserves the right to give both awards to
the same paper, not to give an award, or to split an award among
several papers. Papers authored or co-authored by program
committee members are not eligible for an award.
