For the last 25 years, COMAD has served as the premier international conference on data management in India. COMAD's scope includes all areas of data management including Database Management Systems, Web and Information Retrieval, Data Mining and Big Data Systems. COMAD'14 invites the submission of original research contributions as full papers and posters, as well as proposals for demonstrations, industrial presentations, tutorials, and panels.
RESEARCH PAPERS: If you have original research work that are currently not under review or published elsewhere, you can submit them as full-length research papers to COMAD'14. All full papers have to be submitted through the link provided below, with maximum of 12-pages adhering to the formatting guidelines given at: submission instructions.
POSTER PAPERS: If you are working on bleeding-edge research ideas, and the work is still in progress or it is a research that is best communicated through interactive mode, the poster track of COMAD'14 is for you. The poster track submissions are at most 4-pages in length, formatted using guidelines at: submission instructions, and are to be submitted just like research papers.
DEMONSTRATION PROPOSALS: If you have built a system and are keen to demonstrate it to all participants of COMAD'14, you can submit a 4-page demonstration proposal that outlines the system, its novelty and a plan of demonstration.
INDUSTRIAL PROPOSALS: COMAD'14 strives to bring together the innovations in industry and the research community. The Industrial papers track covers innovative commercial data management systems, applications and database implementations, novel applications of database technology, and experience in applying recent research advances to real-world problems. Submissions to this track should not exceed 12-pages and must adhere to the formatting guidelines at: submission instructions.
TUTORIALS AND PANELS: We invite proposals for tutorials on all topics of potential interest to the COMAD attendees. The proposals should not exceed more than 4-pages in the standard formatting, and clearly indicate the target audience, duration (either 1.5 hours or 3 hours), in addition to the details of the topic. Similarly panel proposals should not exceed more than 4 pages, and should clearly state the topic of discussion in the panel, statement on the importance of the panel discussion, tentative list of panelists and the questions that will be posed to them, etc.
For the first time, COMAD'14 also features a programming challenge to encourage the active participation of graduate and undergraduate students. The details of the programming contest will be circulated separately.
