CIDR is a
systems-oriented conference, complementary in its mission to the
mainstream database conferences like SIGMOD or VLDB, by emphasizing
the system architecture perspective rather than mathematical models
or algorithmic methods for highly specific issues. Papers are invited
on innovative and visionary approaches to data systems architecture.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: database systems,
storage management, scalability and dependability, new architectures
for business intelligence, personal information spaces, ambient and
embedded databases, network services, user interfaces for
data-intensive systems, Web data and Deep Web, information
integration and data cleaning architectures, DB&IR integration,
data management for e-science, data management in sensor networks,
peer-to-peer data management, self-managing systems, benchmarking and
especially papers about innovative and risky approaches, systems-building
experience, killer applications and "war stories", experimental
studies, unsolved technical challenges, provocative position statements,
and other off-the-beaten-path papers on the architecture and implementation
of data-centric systems.
should be electronically submitted in pdf format to CIDR2007.
Submissions will be reviewed by three members of the program
committee. To encourage only the best work, each person
can be an author or co-author of only ONE submission.
Papers must be formatted using to the ACM SIG style, as used, for
example, in SIGMOD and VLDB. (see
http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html), and must not exceed SIX pages in length (half the length of a SIGMOD
paper, to enforce concise presentation).
versions of accepted papers will be published in the electronic
proceedings of the CIDR conference and should not exceed twelve pages
(same length as a SIGMOD paper; in exceptional cases with appendices for
background material such as extensive details on experimental results).
Each paper must explicitly state (as a subtitle) one of the following
categories: system overview, experience paper, technical challenge, or
position paper. Authors of papers on implemented systems are highly
encouraged to submit also a demo proposal. The paper submission should
explicitly reference the demo submission, and vice versa.
We also solicit system demos for live presentation at the
conference. Demo proposals should be described in a four-page
paper formatted according to the ACM SIG style (see http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html).
The proposals will be evaluated by a Demo Program Committee,
chaired by Donald Kossmann. Demo descriptions will be included
in the conference proceedings.
A demo proposal that accompanies a full paper submission
should explicitly reference the corresponding paper, and
vice versa. The single-submission-per-author limit for full
papers does not apply to demo proposals; multiple demo proposals
by the same co-author are acceptable. Systems that have
been demonstrated at mainstream conferences such as SIGMOD,
VLDB, ICDE, EDBT, etc. are eligible for the demo program
of CIDR; however, we expect significant added value and
a correspondingly updated demo description for CIDR.
