Call For Papers

18th International Conference on Management of Data (COMAD) 2012
Dec 14-16, 2012, Pune, India


COMAD invites the submission of original research contributions as well as proposals for demonstrations, industrial presentations, tutorials, and panels. COMAD's scope includes all areas of data management including Database Management Systems, Web and Information Retrieval, and Data Mining.

To encourage participation from junior research colleagues, COMAD 2012 will have a special "Work in Progress" track designed as a forum to present ongoing work and receive feedback. Only the abstracts of submissions in this track will be included in the proceedings of the conference. This will not preclude the authors from submitting the full version of their paper to another conference.

Areas of interest include but are not limited to:

Data Management Systems:
* Benchmarking and performance evaluation
* Data exchange and integration
* Database monitoring and tuning
* Data privacy and security
* Data quality, cleaning and lineage
* Data warehousing
* Managing uncertain, imprecise and inconsistent information
* Multilingual data management
* Novel data types
* Parallel and distributed databases
* Peer-to-peer data management
* Personalized information systems
* Storage and transaction management
* New data management architectures (e.g., data stream management and cloud)

Web and Information Retrieval:
* Categorization, clustering, and filtering
* Document representation and content analysis
* Information extraction and summarization
* IR theory, platform, evaluation
* Question answering and cross-language IR
* Web and IR
* Social network analysis

Data Mining:
* Novel data mining algorithms and foundations
* Innovative applications of data mining
* Data mining and KDD systems and frameworks
* Mining data streams and sensor data
* Mining multi-media, graph, spatio-temporal and semi-structured data
* Security and privacy in data mining
* High performance and parallel/distributed data mining
* Mining tera-/peta-scale data
* Visual data mining and data visualization

To ensure wide visibility for the material published at the conference, arrangements will be made with ACM SIGMOD for including the proceedings of the conference in the SIGMOD on-line archives. Two awards, for Best Paper and Best Student Paper, will be presented at the conference.
