20th International Conference on Management of Data (COMAD) 2014
Dec 17-19, 2014, Hyderabad, India


For the last 25 years, COMAD has served as the premier international
conference on data management in India. COMAD's scope includes all
areas of data management including Database Management Systems, Web
and Information Retrieval, Data Mining and Big Data Systems. COMAD'14
invites the submission of original research contributions as full
papers and posters, as well as proposals for demonstrations,
industrial presentations, tutorials, and panels.


RESEARCH PAPERS: If you have original research work that are
currently not under review or published elsewhere, you can submit them
as full-length research papers to COMAD'14. All full papers
have to be submitted through the link provided below, with maximum of
12-pages adhering to the formatting guidelines given at:

POSTER PAPERS: If you are working on bleeding-edge research ideas, and
the work is still in progress or it is a research that is best
communicated through interactive mode, the poster track of COMAD'14 is
for you. The poster track submissions are at most 4-pages in length,
formatted using guidelines at:, and are
to be submitted just like research papers.

DEMONSTRATION PROPOSALS: If you have built a system and are keen to
demonstrate it to all participants of COMAD'14, you can submit a
4-page demonstration proposal that outlines the system, its novelty
and a plan of demonstration.

INDUSTRIAL PROPOSALS: COMAD'14 strives to bring together the
innovations in industry and the research community. The Industrial
papers track covers innovative commercial data management systems,
applications and database implementations, novel applications of
database technology, and experience in applying recent research
advances to real-world problems. Submissions to this track should not
exceed 12-pages and must adhere to the formatting guidelines

TUTORIALS AND PANELS: We invite proposals for tutorials on all topics
of potential interest to the COMAD attendees. The proposals should not
exceed more than 4-pages in the standard formatting, and clearly
indicate the target audience, duration (either 1.5 hours or 3 hours),
in addition to the details of the topic.
Similarly panel proposals should not exceed more than 4 pages, and
should clearly state the topic of discussion in the panel, statement
on the importance of the panel discussion, tentative list of panelists
and the questions that will be posed to them, etc.

For the first time, COMAD'14 also features a programming challenge to encourage
the active participation of graduate and undergraduate students. The
details of the programming contest will be circulated separately.

Areas of interest include but are not limited to:

Data Management Systems:
* Big-Data management
