EDBT 2018 Call for Demonstration Proposals

The International Conference on Extending Database Technology is a leading international forum for database researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to discuss cutting-edge ideas, and to exchange techniques, tools, and experiences related to data management. Data management is an essential enabling technology for scientific, engineering, business, and social communities. Data management technology is driven by the requirements of applications across many scientific and business communities, and runs on diverse technical platforms associated with the web, enterprises, clouds and mobile devices. The database community has a continuing tradition of contributing with models, algorithms and architectures, to the set of tools and applications enabling day-to- day functioning of our societies. Faced with the broad challenges of today's applications, data management technology constantly broadens its reach, exploiting new hardware and software to achieve innovative result.

EDBT 2018 invites demonstration submissions relating to all aspects of data management defined broadly, and particularly encourages work on topics of emerging interest in the research and development communities.

Submission Guidelines

Conflicts of interest (COI)

When submitting an industry paper, the submission site will request information about conflicts of interest of the paper’s authors with program committee (PC) members. It is the full responsibility of all authors of a paper to identify all and only their PC members they have a COI with as defined below. Papers with incorrect or incomplete COI information at the time when submission closes are rejected.

A paper author has a conflict of interest with a PC member when, and only when, one or more of the following conditions holds:

  • The PC member is a co-author of the paper.
  • The PC member has been a co-worker in the same company or university within the past two years.
  • The PC member has been a collaborator within the past two years.
  • The PC member is or was the author's primary thesis advisor, no matter how long ago.
  • The author is or was the PC member's primary thesis advisor, no matter how long ago.
  • The PC member is a relative or close personal friend of the author.

Evaluation Criteria

The evaluation criteria include both the novelty of the contribution and the audience experience. Thus, the submission should also describe in detail what attendees who view the demonstration session at the EDBT conference will experience. Priority will be given to contributions that have never been demonstrated before.

Length, file type, and formatting

Length: Demo papers (including bibliographic references) should not exceed 4 pages.

File type: Each demo proposal is to be submitted as a single PDF file, formatted for A4 paper and no more than 5 MB in file size. Submitted papers must print without difficulty on a variety of printers, using Adobe Acrobat Reader. It is the responsibility of the authors to ensure that their submitted PDF file will print easily on simple default configurations.

Formatting: Demo papers must be must follow the ACM Proceedings Format. Please make sure you are using the latest 2018 version. Modified ACM LaTeX2e style files with ISBN and copyright information for EDBT 2018 can be downloaded here: acmart-edbt2018.cls, sample-edbt2018.pdf, sample-edbt2018.tex.The font size, margins, inter-column spacing, and line spacing in the templates must be kept unchanged.

Any submitted paper violating the length, file type, or formatting requirements will be rejected without review.
