Proposal Submission Deadline: March 4, 2016 (5pm Pacific Time)
Notification of Acceptance: May 4, 2016
Camera Ready Copy Due: May 30, 2016
VLDB 2016 invites submissions for demo proposals on any topic of interest, broadly defined, to the data management community. Accepted demonstration papers will appear in the PVLDB proceedings.
The proposal must describe the demonstrated system and state the significance of the contribution to data management research, technologies, and/or applications. The proposal should pay special attention in describing in detail the exact demonstration scenarios for the given system. That is, how the audience will experience the demo, what kind of functionality is supported, user scenarios, interface and interaction options, etc. Proposals must be submitted in camera-ready format using the PVLDB formatting instructions, and are limited to 4 pages, inclusive of ALL material.
To minimize biases in the evaluation process, we use CMT's conflict management system, through which authors should flag conflicts with Demo Review Board members. All authors of a submission must declare conflicts on CMT prior to the submission deadline.
You have a conflict with X:
- If you and X have worked in the same university or company in the past two years, or will be doing so in the next six months on account of an accepted job offer. Different campuses do not count as the same university for this purpose -- UC Berkeley does not have a conflict with UC Santa Barbara.
- If you and X have collaborated recently, as evidenced in a joint publication or jointly organized event in the past two years, or are collaborating now.
- If you are the PhD thesis advisor of X or vice versa, irrespective of how long ago this was.
- If X is a relative or close personal friend.
Submissions with undeclared conflicts or spurious conflicts will be SUMMARILY REJECTED. There will be NO exceptions to this rule.
Note that demonstation proposals must not have been published, or be under consideration for publication, at any other forum.
Demonstration proposals must be submitted electronically, in PDF format, using the Conference Management Tool for VLDB2016. When creating a new paper submission, you will be given the option to choose a track. Choose the "Demonstrations" track for your demo proposal.
