We solicit papers describing original work relevant to the management of scientific and statistical data and not published or under review elsewhere.
SSDBM submissions can be of four kinds, in three tracks:
- RESEARCH PAPERS (LONG and SHORT): We solicit both full papers (12 pages) and short papers (4 pages). The former will tend to be descriptions of complete technical work, while the latter will tend to be descriptions of interesting, innovative ideas, which nevertheless require more work to mature. Generally, vision papers should also be submitted as short papers. The program committe may also decide to accept some full papers as short papers. Full papers will be given a presentation slot in the conference, while short papers will be presented in the form of posters. All papers, regardless of size, will be given an entry in the conference proceedings.
- CASE STUDIES: We solicit full-length, 12-page papers, which describe applications of existing technologies to interesting science problems, including a description of the encountered challenges, how they were overcome, and the lessons learned. The selection criteria for this track will reflect this. All papers in this track will be given an entry in the conference proceedings and a presentation slot (perhaps with a shorter duration than for regular research papers).
- DEMO PAPERS: We solicit demonstration proposals (4 pages in length) which should provide the motivation for the demonstrated concepts, the information about the technology and the system to be demonstrated (including a system description, functionality and figures when applicable), and should state the significance of the contribution. Selection criteria for the demonstration proposals evaluation include: the novelty, the technical advances and challenges, and the overall practical attractiveness of the demonstrated system. Demo papers will also be given an entry in the conference proceedings.
All submissions must use one of the ACM templates found at http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates.
