Final Program

For Delegates


ACM SIGMOD/PODS Conference: Vancouver, 2008
SIGMOD: Call for Demos

The SIGMOD Demonstrations program is an exciting and highly interactive way to demonstrate your database systems research. Because of its continued success,  the demo program has become increasingly competitive and well respected. Proposals of innovative database system research are solicited. We encourage submissions that describe how the demonstration system illustrates research contributions.

The deadline for demo proposals submission is November 16 2007, 3:00 PM US Eastern Time. Papers must be submitted electronically through the main conference submission site in the Demo track. Only demo proposals submitted through the official submission site prior to the deadline will be considered for SIGMOD 2008.

Demonstration proposals should provide enough information about the technology and the system to be demonstrated (including a system description, functionality and figures when applicable). Submissions to the demonstrations track of SIGMOD 2008 are not subject to double blind reviewing. The author(s) name and affiliation(s) should be present in the submitted document.

All submitted proposals must be formatted according to these instructions, and must be no more than three (3) US letter pages in length. This page limit includes all parts of the proposal: title, abstract, body, and bibliography.

File type: Papers are to be submitted as a single PDF file, formatted for 8.5" x 11" paper. It is essential that submitted papers print without difficulty on a variety of printers, using Adobe Acrobat Reader. It is the absolute responsibility of the authors to ensure that their submitted PDF file will print easily on simple default configurations.

Formatting: Papers must use the ACM proceedings format, using one of the templates listed at the ACM SIG Proceedings Templates web site. Templates are available in Word, WordPerfect, and LaTeX (versions 2.09 and 2e). For the LaTeX formats, you may use either the standard style or the SIG-alternate style. Note: Although the ACM templates include headings for "Categories and Subject Descriptors," "General Terms," and "Keywords," these are not used by SIGMOD and can be omitted from your submitted demo proposal. Any submitted demo proposal violating the length, file type, or formatting requirements will be rejected without review.


The notification for acceptance for demostration papers is February 16, 2008.

Accepted demo proposals (three-pages in length) will appear in the final proceedings and their camera-ready deadline is March 20, 2008.
