SIGMOD Call for Industrial Presentations

The industrial track is the forum for high quality presentations on innovative commercial software, systems and services for all facets of information technology, including database systems, information retrieval systems, information integration, streaming data, and also data and information as they arise in web services, sensor networks, visualization, social networking, mobile applications, cloud computing, data-centered business processes, and analytics. We also encourage submissions on experiences with innovative applications. Submissions that do not relate to commercial software or industrial-strength software intended for wide use are discouraged. Acceptance criteria will be innovativeness of software and the potential of impact.

We invite proposals for individual talks for the industrial track to be submitted electronically via the industrial track submission website. A talk proposal consists of either a 500 word abstract or a full (SIGMOD conference length) paper. Reviews will not be provided for talk proposals. The industrial track committee will contact potential speakers upon review of proposals for further details and evaluation, if clarification is needed. For each proposal invited for a talk, either an extended abstract or a full paper will be included in the proceedings. This decision will be at the discretion of the industrial track PC. We also invite proposals for entire sessions, which can be sent by email to the Industrial Program Co-Chairs. Such proposals should be about a coherent theme of relevance to the data management industry and identify potential speakers in the session. Authors of all accepted proposals will be expected to provide an electronic copy of their slides for inclusion into the SIGMOD 2011 website after the conference.

The deadline for the submissions is Monday November 8, 2010, 3pm EDT.
