IDAR 2011 Call for Papers
SIGMOD/PODS PhD Workshop on Innovative Database Research
The Ph.D. Workshop on Innovative Database Research (to be held in cooperation with SIGMOD/PODS) is intended to bring together Ph.D. students working on topics related to the SIGMOD/PODS conference series. The workshop offers Ph.D. students the opportunity to present, discuss, and receive feedback on their research in a constructive and international atmosphere. The workshop will be accompanied by prominent professors, researchers and practitioners in the fields of data and information management, who will participate actively and contribute to the discussions. The workshop is co-located with SIGMOD/PODS 2011 and will take place on Monday June 13th, 2011.
TOPICS OF INTEREST
The topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- New data management architectures, distributed data management (e.g., data stream management, P2P, replication, and cloud)
- Data management applications (e.g., Web services and mash-ups, social networks scientific databases, sensor networks, decision-making and analytics)
- Data models and languages (e.g., semi-structured, probabilistic, multi-media, temporal, spatial)
- Data-centric workflow and process management
- Data integration, meta-data management, data quality, data cleaning
- Performance, scalability and dependability of information systems
- Benchmarking and experimental methodology
- Other aspects of modern information systems such as data security, data privacy, personalization, user interfaces, etc.
- Search query languages (including techniques from information retrieval)
- Updates and views
- Approximate query answering
- Semantic-Web data and ontologies;
- Model theory, logics, algebras and computational complexity;
- Automatic verification of database-driven systems;
- Information-theoretic aspects of data management
Submission: April 4th, 2011
Notification: May 2nd, 2011
Camera ready: May 9th, 2011
Ph.D. Workshop: June 13th, 2011
Papers describing doctoral work should be submitted in PDF or PostScript format at:
The paper length should not exceed 6 pages formatted according to ACM SIG proceedings template (http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates). In contrast to regular conference papers, submissions should address specifically doctoral work. Therefore, the following elements are recommended:
- A clear formulation of the research topic.
- An identification of the significant problems in the field of research.
- An outline of the current knowledge of the problem domain and existing solutions.
- A presentation of preliminary ideas, the proposed approach, and results achieved so far.
- A sketch of the applied research methodology.
- A description of the Ph.D. project's contribution to the problem solution.
- A discussion of how the suggested solution is different, new, or better as compared to existing approaches to the problem.
The intention of this workshop is to support and inspire Ph.D. students during their ongoing research efforts. Hence, it is necessary that authors will have neither achieved their Ph.D. degree nor submitted their thesis before the Ph.D workshop (June 13th, 2011). To enforce this rule, we require authors to disclose their expected graduation date and their advisor's name when submitting. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings, which will appear on the SIGMOD DISC.
