SIGMOD 2017 ANNOUNCEMENT
Dear members of the SIGMOD/PODS Community:
On January 16 (Martin-Luther-King Day in the USA), the SIGMOD Executive Committee decided to move the ACM SIGMOD/PODS 2017 conference out of North Carolina to a new, still undecided location. The decision was made unanimously by the Committee following extensive discussions with the SIGMOD Advisory Board.
The SIGMOD/PODS community is open and inclusive. It embraces all forms of diversity, including diversity of gender identity. Our commitment to these fundamental principles would have been in question if we held the SIGMOD/PODS 2017 conference in North Carolina, hence the decision to move.
This is a fragment of the longer blog posting, read more and join the discussion at the SIGMOD Blog.
