ICDE 2024 : 40th IEEE International Conference on Data Engineering
Conference Series : International Conference on Data Engineering
Call For Papers
The annual IEEE International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE) is one of the premier conferences in data and information engineering and addresses research issues on designing, building, managing, and evaluating advanced data intensive systems and applications. It is a leading forum for researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore cutting‐edge ideas and to exchange techniques, tools, and experiences.
Each year, ICDE attracts over 500 researchers and practitioners from the academia, industry and government from across the world. The audience includes leading data scientists and professors, entrepreneurs, developers, talented young researchers/students and other thought leaders from major vendors and academia.
This year ICDE will take place in Utrecht. It is the fourth largest city in the Netherlands, located right in the middle of the country, and is a major transportation hub. The historical part of the city features many buildings dating back in the middle ages. It has been the religious centre of the Netherlands since the 8th century and the most important city. It had been the country's cultural centre, until the 16th century when it was surpassed by Amsterdam. Today, it hosts the second-highest number of cultural events in the country. It is home to Utrecht University, the largest university in the Netherlands, that is ranked internationally in the 66th position by the Times Higher Education University Rankings.

Call for Industrial and Application Papers
The IEEE International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE) 2024 Industry and Applications Track will feature high-quality submissions describing innovative industrial-strength data management systems and solutions in all areas of data management systems as well as innovative and demanding application scenarios.
Topics of Interest
The track will emphasize submissions that describe innovative industrial advancements in relevant areas including, but not limited to:
Database and data management systems
Data systems on new hardware
Scalable machine learning and data mining systems
Data quality and cleaning
Mobile data management
Stream data processing and IoT
Applications of LLMs to data management
We discourage submissions that do not articulate the innovative aspect of a product or application project (including relevant open-source software), but rather give a general overview. We also discourage submissions that address a pure research problem. Each submission must include at least one author with a non-academic affiliation.
The Industry and Applications Track will accept short (6 pages + unlimited space for references) as well as long (12 pages + unlimited space for references) submissions.
The Industry and Applications Track has only one round of submissions. All deadlines are 11:59PM Anywhere on Earth (AoE).
Submissions due: October 22, 2023
Notification to authors (Accept/Revise/Reject): December 18, 2023
Revisions due: January 29, 2024
Final notification to authors (Accept/Reject): February 20, 2024
Camera-ready copies due: March 1, 2024
Manuscripts must be prepared in accordance with the IEEE format, and submitted to the ICDE 2024 Industrial Track submission website.
Long papers must not exceed 12 pages plus unlimited space for references, and short papers must not exceed 6 pages plus unlimited space for references. Only electronic submissions in PDF format will be considered. Papers that do not follow the guidelines or are not within the scope of topics relevant to ICDE will be desk rejected. Authors are encouraged to contact the industrial track chairs if they need clarification regarding the suitability of their work to this track.
A paper submitted to ICDE 2024 cannot be under review for any other conference or journal during the entire time it is considered for ICDE 2024, and it must be substantially different from any previously published work.
Submissions will be reviewed in a single-blind manner. Each submission must include all author names and affiliations. Changes to the author list after paper acceptance are not permitted. In case an exceptional situation arises necessitating a change in the author list, the situation needs to be explained via email to the industrial track chairs, who will decide whether to approve the change.
All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore), if none of the authors attends the conference to present their paper.
All submissions should follow ICDE 2024 Research Track guidelines on Inclusion and Diversity in Writing, and Conflicts of Interest.
