Venue Information




CIDR is a systems-oriented conference, complementary in its mission to the mainstream database conferences like SIGMOD or VLDB, by emphasizing the system architecture perspective rather than mathematical models or algorithmic methods for highly specific issues. Papers are invited on innovative and visionary approaches to data systems architecture. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: database systems, storage management, scalability and dependability, new architectures for business intelligence, personal information spaces, ambient and embedded databases, network services, user interfaces for data-intensive systems, Web data and Deep Web, information integration and data cleaning architectures, DB&IR integration, data management for e-science, data management in sensor networks, peer-to-peer data management, self-managing systems, benchmarking and experimental methodology.





We solicit especially 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. 


Papers should be electronically submitted in pdf format to CIDR2007. Submissions will be reviewed by three members of the program committee. To encourage only the best work, each person can be an author or co-author of only ONE submission.

Papers must be formatted using to the ACM SIG style, as used, for example, in SIGMOD and VLDB. (see, and must not exceed SIX pages in length (half the length of a SIGMOD paper, to enforce concise presentation).

Final versions of accepted papers will be published in the electronic proceedings of the CIDR conference and should not exceed twelve pages (same length as a SIGMOD paper; in exceptional cases with appendices for background material such as extensive details on experimental results). Each paper must explicitly state (as a subtitle) one of the following categories: system overview, experience paper, technical challenge, or position paper. Authors of papers on implemented systems are highly encouraged to submit also a demo proposal. The paper submission should explicitly reference the demo submission, and vice versa.



We also solicit system demos for live presentation at the conference. Demo proposals should be described in a four-page paper formatted according to the ACM SIG style (see The proposals will be evaluated by a Demo Program Committee, chaired by Donald Kossmann. Demo descriptions will be included in the conference proceedings.

A demo proposal that accompanies a full paper submission should explicitly reference the corresponding paper, and vice versa. The single-submission-per-author limit for full papers does not apply to demo proposals; multiple demo proposals by the same co-author are acceptable. Systems that have been demonstrated at mainstream conferences such as SIGMOD, VLDB, ICDE, EDBT, etc. are eligible for the demo program of CIDR; however, we expect significant added value and a correspondingly updated demo description for CIDR.
