The biennial Conference on Innovative Data Systems Research (CIDR) is a systems-oriented
conference, complementary in its mission to the mainstream database conferences like SIGMOD
or VLDB, emphasizing the system architecture perspective. The conference draws practitioners,
researchers, and thinkers from industry and academia to explore and debate the latest ideas
in the field. A single-track schedule and the beautiful environment of Asilomar encourage
active engagement and discussion throughout the event.
Papers are invited on novel approaches to data systems architecture and use.
CIDR especially seeks papers about innovative and risky approaches, systems-building experience,
killer applications and "war stories", experimental studies, unsolved technical challenges,
provocative position statements, and other off-the-beaten-path papers on the architecture and
implementation of data-centric systems. In contrast to other publication venues,
CIDR especially values innovation, experience-based insight, and vision.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to: database systems, storage management,
cloud computing, massive data analysis, software service infrastructure, scalability and
dependability, personal information spaces, embedded and sensor databases, user interfaces,
information integration and data cleaning architectures, information retrieval, declarative
systems, data management in networks, benchmarking and experimental methodology. We also
welcome submissions on thought-provoking applications and emerging uses of data management technology.
Submissions must be formatted using the ACM SIG style.
(see http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html), and must not exceed SIX pages in
length (half the length of a SIGMOD paper, to enforce concise presentation). Authors of
papers on implemented systems are highly encouraged to also submit a one-page demo proposal
detailing a 10-minute demonstration of the work to be given at the conference. Final versions
of accepted papers will be published in the electronic proceedings of the CIDR conference and
will be given a space allocation of up to 12 pages.
To encourage authors to submit only their best work, each person can be an author or
co-author of only one submission to CIDR. Authors cannot be added to a paper after submission.
If an author appears on multiple submissions, the PC may reject all those submissions without review.
As in previous years, the conference will be held at the Asilomar Conference Grounds on the
Pacific Ocean just south of Monterey, CA. The single-track program will include: keynotes,
paper presentations, panels, a gong-show and other events.
The Program Committee for the conference will be announced once it is finalized.
