Please first read the guidelines for the preparation of papers.
Core Database Technology
Program Chair: Donald Kossmann, email@example.com
Research papers will be judged according to their category, so authors should give careful consideration to placing their papers appropriately. Papers must not be published or under consideration to be published elsewhere. Authors will be notified of the results by May 14, 2004.
Industrial, Applications & Experience Papers
Industrial/application/experience submissions, both full papers and extended abstracts, should be submitted electronically by March 5, 2004 (9:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time) using the conference management tool. Further questions may be addressed to:
Jose Blakeley, firstname.lastname@example.org
Authors will be notified of the results by May 14, 2004.
Tutorial proposals must clearly identify the intended audience. Tutorials whose audience is broader than the database research community are encouraged. Proposals must be no more than five pages, and must include enough material to provide a sense of both the scope of material to be covered and the depth to which it will be covered. The intended length of the tutorial (1.5 or 3 hours) should also be indicated, together with justification that a high-quality presentation will be achieved within the chosen time period. Proposals should be submitted electronically by March 5, 2004 (9:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time) to:
Raymond Ng, email@example.com
The submission must contain the name, e-mail address, telephone number, and fax number of the speaker. Tutorial presentations will be published and made available to VLDB participants, and must be ready for publication by July 1, 2004.
Panel proposals should address controversial issues and must be debate-oriented rather than a series of short presentations. The proposal should include the topic title, a short statement about the importance and relevance of the panel and the potential issues of controversy, a tentative list of questions that will be posed to the panelists, a list of confirmed participants along with their affiliation, and a short bio of each participant. Panel proposals should be submitted electronically by March 5, 2004 (9:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time) to:
Jarek Gryz, firstname.lastname@example.org
Short panel summaries will appear in the Proceedings.
Demonstration proposals should be focused on new technology, advances in applying databases, or new techniques. Demonstration proposals must be no more than four pages, and should give a short description of the demonstrated system, explain what is going to be demonstrated, and state the significance of the contribution to database technology, applications, or techniques. Proposals should be submitted electronically by March 5, 2004 (9:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time) to:
Bettina Kemme, email@example.com
Short papers describing demos will appear in the Proceedings.
