SIGMOD 2015 Call for Demonstration Proposals
The SIGMOD demonstration program has become an important venue to share cutting-edge, prototype data management systems with the greater SIGMOD community. We solicit submissions of demonstration proposals, where the demonstrations described will showcase the most exciting new data management technologies. Data management technologies may consist of software, hardware, or both. The emphasis of the SIGMOD demonstration program is on visionary, next generation systems requiring significant research and development effort.
Selection of demonstrations for presentation at SIGMOD has become highly competitive. The evaluation criteria include both the audience experience and the novelty of the system. The proposal should also describe in detail what SIGMOD attendees who view the demonstration will experience. What exactly will the audience see? Will the audience be able to interact with the system? Is there an interesting scenario or script that the demonstrators will use to motivate the demonstration? Authors can include a description of the novel intellectual content of the underlying system and of the system architecture. The demonstration proposal must also include citations of the most relevant papers about the demonstrated system and any previous demonstration of that same system. Priority will be given to systems that have never been demonstrated before.
Demonstration proposals must be no more than SIX US letter pages in length. This page limit includes all parts of a proposal: title, abstract, body, and bibliography. The camera-ready of an accepted proposal must observe the same page limit.
Demonstration proposals must adhere to the general SIGMOD formatting guidelines. Submissions to the demonstrations track are NOT subject to double blind reviewing. The author name(s) and affiliation(s) must be present in the submitted document. Any proposal violating the length, file type, or formatting requirements will be rejected without review.
The submission deadline is November 30, 2014 11:59pm PST (abstract submission is not required). Late proposals will not be considered. All submissions must be done electronically through https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/SIGMOD2015/.
Accepted proposals will appear in the final proceedings. The camera ready deadline is March 6, 2015, 11:59pm PST.
One of the demos will be selected to receive a Best Demo Award, which will be announced during the SIGMOD Award Talks session, when the authors will give a brief overview of their work.
