January 6-9, 2013 Asilomar, California
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 and VLDB, emphasizing the systems architecture perspective. CIDR gathers researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry to discuss the latest innovative and visionary ideas in the field.
Papers are invited on novel approaches to data systems architecture and usage.
CIDR mainly encourages papers about innovative and risky data management system architecture ideas, systems-building experience and insight, resourceful experimental studies, provocative position statements. CIDR especially values innovation, experience-based insight, and vision.
As of last year, in addition to the regular CIDR track we will have a special "Outrageous Ideas and Vision" track, sponsored by the Computing Community Consortium. See the Call for Papers for more details.
As usual, the conference will be held at the Asilomar Conference Grounds on the Pacific Ocean just south of Monterey, CA. The program will include: keynotes, paper presentations, panels, a gong-show and plenty of time for interaction.
