Call for Demonstration Proposals

VLDB 2012 invites submissions for demo proposals on any topic of interest to the data management community broadly defined.

Unlike the VLDB'12 research track submission (which is now through PVLDB), the demo track has a more traditional submission process. Demonstration proposals must be submitted electronically, in pdf format, by March 29, 2012 (10:00am PST) using the conference management tool. When you create a new paper submission, you will be given the option to choose a track. Choose the “Demonstrations” track for your demo paper submission. Proposals must be submitted in camera-ready format using the PVLDB formatting instructions, and are limited to 4 pages.

The proposal must describe the demonstrated system, clearly indicate what is going to be demonstrated, and state the significance of the contribution to data management research, technologies and/or applications.  Proposals must not be published or under consideration for publication elsewhere. Demonstration papers will appear in the proceedings.
