Conference Location
Call For Papers
 The Principles of Database Systems (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 nontraditional (see

Topics of Interest

For the 37th edition, PODS continues to aim to broaden its scope, and calls for research papers providing original, substantial contributions along one or more of the following aspects:

    deep theoretical exploration of topical areas central to data management
    new formal frameworks that aim at providing a basis for deeper theoretical investigation of important emerging issues in data management
    validation of theoretical approaches from the lens of practical applicability in data management. Papers in this track should provide an experimental evaluation that gives new insight in established theories. Besides, they should provide a clear message to the database theory community as to which aspects need further (theoretical) investigation, based on the experimental findings.

Topics that fit the interests of the symposium include, but are not limited to:

    concurrency & recovery, distributed/parallel databases, cloud computing
    data and knowledge integration and exchange, data provenance, views and data warehouses, metadata management
    data-centric (business) process management, workflows, web services
    data management and machine learning
    data mining, information extraction, search
    data models, data structures, algorithms for data management
    data privacy and security, human-related data and ethics
    data streams
    design, semantics, query languages
    domain-specific databases (multi-media, scientific, spatial, temporal, text)
    graph databases and (semantic) Web data
    incompleteness, inconsistency, uncertainty in data management
    knowledge-enriched data management
    model theory, logics, algebras, computational complexity

Submission Format

Submitted papers must be formatted using the designated style file (sig-alternate-10.cls) which uses 10pt font size and line spacing of 11pt using the "\documentclass{sig-alternate-10}" command in your LaTeX document. Submitted papers should be at most twelve pages, excluding bibliography. Additional details may be included in an appendix that should be incorporated at the submission time (online appendices are not allowed). However, such appendices will be read at the discretion of the program committee. Papers that are longer than twelve pages (excluding bibliography and the appendix) or in font size smaller than 10pt or with line spacing less than 11pt risk rejection without consideration of their merits. The submission process will be through the Web at Note that 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 of submitted paper 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.
