SIGMOD 2006 Call for Papers

Chicago, 26 to 29 June 2006

The annual ACM SIGMOD conference is a leading international forum for database researchers, developers, and users to explore cutting-edge ideas and results, and to exchange techniques, tools, and experiences. We invite the submission of original research contributions as well as proposals for demonstrations, tutorials, industrial presentations, and panels. We encourage submissions relating to all aspects of data management defined broadly and particularly encourage work that represent technical insights or present new abstractions and novel approaches to problems of significance. We especially welcome submissions that help identify and solve data management systems issues by leveraging knowledge of applications and related areas, such as information retrieval and search, operating systems & storage technologies, and web services. Areas of interest include but are not limited to:
