SIGMOD PhD Workshop on Innovative Database Research
The Ph.D. Workshop on Innovative Database Research (to be held in cooperation with SIGMOD) is intended to bring together Ph.D. students working on topics related to the SIGMOD conference series. The workshop offers Ph.D. students the opportunity to present, discuss, and receive feedback on their research in a constructive and international atmosphere. The workshop will be accompanied by prominent professors, researchers and practitioners in the fields of data and information management, who will participate actively and contribute to the discussions. The workshop is co-located with SIGMOD 2010 and will take place on Friday June 11th, 2009.
TOPICS OF INTEREST
The topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Benchmarking and performance evaluation
- Data quality, semantics and integration
- Database monitoring and tuning
- Data privacy and security

Submission: March 22nd, 2010
Notification: April 21st, 2010
Camera ready: May 7th, 2010
Ph.D.Workshop: June 11th, 2010
Papers describing doctoral work should be submitted in PDF or PostScript format at:
The paper length should not exceed 6 pages formatted according to ACM SIG proceedings template (http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates). In contrast to regular conference papers, submissions should address specifically doctoral work. Therefore, the following elements are recommended:
- A clear formulation of the research topic.
- An identification of the significant problems in the field of research.
- An outline of the current knowledge of the problem domain and existing solutions.
- A presentation of preliminary ideas, the proposed approach, and results achieved so far.
- A sketch of the applied research methodology.
- A description of the Ph.D. project’s contribution to the problem solution.
- A discussion of how the suggested solution is different, new, or better as compared to existing approaches to the problem.
The intention of this workshop is to support and inspire Ph.D. students during their ongoing research efforts. Hence, it is necessary that authors will have neither achieved their Ph.D. degree nor submitted their thesis before the Ph.D workshop (June 11th, 2010). To enforce this rule, we require authors to disclose their expected graduation date and their advisor’s name when submitting. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings, which will appear on the SIGMOD DISC.
BENEFITS FOR IDAR 2010 PARTICIPANTS
Free pre-registration to participation in IDAR 2010 will be offered at the SIGMOD registration webpage.
SIGMOD will fund up to 10 travel grants of US$1,000 for students who will present a paper at IDAR (one student per accepted paper). Student with professors who have ample travel funding are encouraged to get their funding from their professors. More information on the IDAR webpage.
