Call For Papers

June 24 - June 26, 2013, New York, New York

The PODS symposium series, held in conjunction with the SIGMOD
conference series, provides a premier annual forum for the
communication of new advances in the theoretical foundations
of data management, traditional or non-traditional
For the 32nd edition, original research papers providing new
insights in the specification, design, or implementation
of data-management tools are called for.

Topics of Interest

Topics that fit the interests of the symposium include the following:

-- big data, alternative query languages, data support for analytics;
-- query languages for semi-structured data (including XML and RDF);
-- search query languages (including techniques from information retrieval);
-- dynamic aspects of databases (updates, views, approximate query answering);
-- incompleteness, inconsistency, and uncertainty in databases;
-- schema and query extraction;
-- data integration; data exchange;
-- provenance; workflows, data-centric Business Process Management;
-- metadata management; meta-querying;
-- constraints (specification, reasoning, mining, constraint databases);
-- privacy and security;
-- Web services; automatic verification of database-driven systems;
-- model theory, logics, algebras and computational complexity;
-- data modeling; data structures and algorithms for data management;
-- design, semantics, and optimization of query and database languages;
-- domain-specific databases (multi-media, scientific, spatial, temporal, text).

In addition, we especially welcome papers addressing emerging approaches
and challenges in data management. An External Review Committee will
assist in reviewing papers in the following multi-disciplinary areas of
particular interest to this edition of PODS:

-- Cloud Computing and Next-generation Distributed Query Processing:
Pierre Fraigniaud (Paris 7), Jignesh M. Patel (Wisconsin),
Sergei Vassilvitskii (Google), Milan Vojnovic (Microsoft Research)

-- Privacy:
Michael Hay (Cornell), Nina Mishra (Microsoft Research),
Kobbi Nissim (Ben-Gurion U.), Aaron Roth (UPenn),
Adam Smith (Penn State), Mukund Sundararajan (Google)

-- Mining and Learning of Data Models and Queries:
Pauli Miettinen (Max Planck Inst.), Evimaria Terzi (Boston U.),
Panayiotis Tsaparas (U. Ioannina)

-- Recommendation Systems and Social Networks:
Gautam Das (U. Texas at Arlington),
Joseph A. Konstan (U. Minnesota)

-- Semantic, Linked, Networked, and Crowdsourced Data:
Pascal Hitzler (Wright State U.), David R. Karger (MIT),
Boris Motik (Oxford), Neoklis (Alkis) Polyzotis (UC Santa Cruz),
Axel Polleres (Siemens)

Important Dates:

Abstract submission: 28 November 2012
Manuscript submission: 5 December 2012
Notification: 25 February 2013

Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers should be at most twelve pages, including bibliography,
using reasonable page layout and font size of at least 10pt (note that
the SIGMOD style file does not have to be followed). Additional details
may be included in an appendix, which, however, will be read at the
discretion of the PC. Papers longer than twelve pages (excluding the
appendix) or in font size smaller than 10pt risk rejection without
consideration of their merits.

The submission process will be through the easychair website:

Note that, unlike the SIGMOD conference, PODS does not use
double-blind reviewing, and therefore PODS submissions should have
the names and affiliations of authors listed on the paper.

The results must be unpublished and not submitted elsewhere, including
the formal proceedings of other symposia or workshops. Authors of an
accepted paper will be expected to sign copyright release forms, and
one author is expected to present it at the conference.


Best Paper Award: An award will be given to the best submission, as
judged by the PC.

Best Student Paper Award: There will also be an award for the best
submission, as judged by the PC, written by a student or exclusively
by students. An author is considered as a student if at the time of
submission, the author is enrolled in a program at a university or
institution leading to a doctoral/master's/bachelor's degree.

The PC 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 PC members are not eligible
for an award.
