Dear ACM SIGMOD Members:

On behalf of the ACM SIGMOD Executive Committee (EC), I would like to inform you about some of the happenings at ACM SIGMOD over the past couple of years. As you all know, starting July 2021, ACM SIGMOD members elected the following new officers for the 2021-2025 term:

  • Divyakant Agrawal, Chair
  • Fatma Özcan, Vice-chair
  • Rachel Pottinger, Secretary/Treasurer
    In consultation with other members of the ACM SIGMOD EC, one of the major transformations we have made is to move towards a quarterly rolling submission and review process for the ACM SIGMOD conference. As part of this transformation, we also decided to move towards a model where we publish accepted papers in a timely manner in an archival journal.

With this posting, I am pleased to announce that starting with the ACM SIGMOD’2023 conference, all accepted research and industrial track papers (that undergo the stringent review process) will appear in Proceedings of the ACM on Management of Data (PACMMOD; URL: Other conference related publications such as keynote talk abstracts, demonstration papers, tutorial abstracts, and invited industrial papers will also appear in the companion volume of PACMMOD. We would also like to inform our ACM PODS community that starting with the 2024 conference cycle, papers accepted for publication in ACM PODS will also be published in PACMMOD (subject to approvals by the Proceedings of the ACM Steering Committee).

I want to thank the ACM SIGMOD EC for their guidance throughout this process and would also like to acknowledge the leadership of the Proceedings of the ACM Steering Committee and the ACM Publication staff personnel. Finally, on behalf of the entire ACM SIGMOD and greater database community, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to ACM SIGMOD’2023 Program Committee Co-chairs: Sihem Amer-Yahia and K. Selcuk Candan. They worked very hard to operationalize our vision of moving ACM SIGMOD to the quarterly rolling deadline model as well as launching PACMMOD.
