Demo Proposals Formatting Instructions

The SIGMOD Demonstrations program is an exciting and highly interactive way to demonstrate your database systems research, and an excellent way to advertise the applicability of your results. Because of its continued success, the demo program has become increasingly competitive and well-respected. Proposals of innovative database system research are solicited. It is mandatory that all demonstration proposals describe clearly what will be demonstrated and how the contribution will be illustrated interactively. Optionally, proposals can include a URL that shows a preliminary version of the demo (e.g., screenshots, or even better an interactive program).

All submitted demo proposals must be formatted according to the instructions for submission format for research submissions and must be no more than four (4) pages. This page limit includes all parts of the paper: title, abstract, body, and bibliography. Accepted demo proposals will appear in the final proceedings but will be only one page long.

Papers must be submitted electronically through the demo submission website. The deadline for demo proposals submission is Tuesday, November 29, 2005 9pm Pacific Time.
