Call For Papers

The PODS symposium series, held in conjunction with the SIGMOD conference series, provides a premier annual forum for the communication of new advances in the theoretical foundations of data management, traditional or non-traditional (see

Topics of Interest

Topics that fit the interests of the symposium include the following:

design, semantics, and optimization of query and database languages
data modeling; data structures and algorithms for data management
dynamic aspects of databases (updates, views)
query languages for semi-structured data (including XML and RDF)
search query languages (including techniques from information retrieval)
web services; automatic verification of database-driven systems
incompleteness, inconsistency, and uncertainty in databases
constraints (specification, reasoning, mining, constraint databases)
domain-specific databases (multi-media, scientific, spatial, temporal, text)
schema and query extraction
mining and learning of data models and queries
data integration; data exchange
provenance; workflows
metadata management; meta-querying
semantic, linked, networked, and crowdsourced data
foundation of “big data”
recommendation systems and social networks
distributed and parallel aspects of data management; cloud computing and distributed query processing
data streams; real-time and sensor data; approximate query answering
privacy; security
model theory, logics, algebras and computational complexity

Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers should be at most twelve pages, including bibliography, using reasonable page layout and font size of at least 10pt (note that the SIGMOD style file does not have to be followed). Additional details may be included in an appendix, which, however, will be read at the discretion of the PC. Papers longer than twelve pages (excluding the appendix) or in font size smaller than 10pt risk rejection without consideration of their merits. The submission process will be through the easychair website:

Note that, unlike the SIGMOD conference, PODS does not use double-blind reviewing, and therefore PODS submissions should have the names and affiliations of authors listed on the paper.

The results must be unpublished and not submitted elsewhere, including the formal proceedings of other symposia or workshops. Authors of an accepted paper will be expected to sign copyright release forms, and one author is expected to present it at the conference.

Important Dates

November 25, 2013: Research paper abstracts due
December 2, 2013: Research paper submissions due
February 24, 2014: Notification of acceptance, rejection


Best Paper Award: An award will be given to the best submission, as judged by the PC.

Best Student Paper Award: There will also be an award for the best submission, as judged by the PC, written by a student or exclusively by students. An author is considered as a student if at the time of submission, the author is enrolled in a program at a university or institution leading to a doctoral/master's/bachelor's degree. The PC reserves the right to give both awards to the same paper, not to give an award, or to split an award among several papers. Papers authored or co-authored by PC members are not eligible for an award.
