Submission Guidelines

We will accept full papers (up to 12 pages) and abstracts (2 pages). Unlike the VLDB’15 research track submission (which is through PVLDB), the industrial track follows the traditional submission process. Industrial track submissions must be submitted electronically, in pdf format, by March 31, 2015 (5 PM PST) using the Conference Management Tool. When creating a new paper submission, you will be given the option to choose a track. Choose the “Industrial” track for your industrial paper submission. The authors will be notified of the decision by May 31, 2015. Submissions must be in camera-ready format using the PVLDB formatting instructions. The conference management tool is accessible at
