Paper submission will be electronic. All formatting for final publication should follow ACM guidelines.
Authors are required to submit a paper title and short abstract (about 100 words) before submitting the paper. The deadline for abstract submissions is August 31, 2009.
NEW:The length of a submission should not exceed 12 pages in ACM double-column format or 15 pages in LNCS format.
If the authors believe more details are necessary to substantiate the main claims of the paper, they may also include a clearly marked appendix to be read at the discretion of the committee. Papers not conforming to these requirements may be rejected without further consideration. The deadline for paper submission is September 6, 2009. Both deadlines are firm; late submissions will not be considered.
Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection by the end of November, 2009; accepted papers formatted for the proceedings will be due by January 17, 2010.
The first page should include the title of the paper, names and affiliations of authors, a brief synopsis, and the contact author's name, address, phone number, fax number, and email address. Papers must be written in English and provide sufficient detail to allow the program committee to assess their merits. They should begin with a succinct statement of the issues, a summary of the main results, and a brief explanation of their significance and relevance to the conference, all phrased for the non-specialist. Technical development directed to the specialist should follow. References and comparisons with related work should be included. Submissions departing significantly from these guidelines risk rejection.
The results must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere, including the formal proceedings of other symposia or workshops. All authors of accepted papers will be expected to sign copyright release forms. One author of each accepted paper will be expected to present it at the conference.
The proceedings will appear in the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series. The access to the electronic proceedings will be completely free.
Best Paper/Student/Newcomer Awards
An award will be given to the best paper. Also, an award will be given to the best paper written by newcomers to the field of database theory. The latter award will preferentially be given to a paper written only by students; in that case the award will be called ''Best Student Paper Award''. The program committee reserves the following rights: not to give an award; to split an award among several papers; and to define the notion of a newcomer. Papers authored or co-authored by Program Committee members are not eligible for an award.
