January 8-11, 2017 Chaminade, California
The biennial Conference on Innovative Data Systems Research (CIDR) is a systems-oriented conference, complementary in its mission to the mainstream database conferences like SIGMOD and VLDB, emphasizing the systems architecture perspective. CIDR gathers researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry to discuss the latest innovative and visionary ideas in the field.
Papers are invited on novel approaches to data systems architecture and usage.
CIDR mainly encourages papers about innovative and risky data management system architecture ideas, systems-building experience and insight, resourceful experimental studies, provocative position statements. CIDR especially values innovation, experience-based insight, and vision.
After much soul searching, the organizers have elected to move the conference from Asilomar to Chaminade in Santa Cruz, CA. Chaminade is slightly cheaper, has better food, better rooms, and is 45 minutes closer to SFO. Otherwise, the conference will be similar to past years with a single-tracked program of keynotes, paper and demo presentations, panels, a gong-show and plenty of time for interaction.
