                            Call for Papers
                  ACM SIGMOD/PODS 94 Joint Conference
       The Minneapolis Hilton and Towers, Minneapolis, Minnesota
                            May 24-27, 1994

The ACM SIGMOD/PODS Joint Conference aims at fostering close
collaboration between the theoretical and applied database communities.
In the decade of the 90s databases are the ascendant technology for
dealing with complex and interdependent information. Our society can
benefit greatly from the full maturation of database technology, and we
hope that the collaboration which will result from this joint conference
will play a seminal role in stimulating this process. We encourage you
to play a part in this important event.

The PODS and SIGMOD conferences have separate program committees and
will have separate proceedings. Authors must submit their papers to the
conference that they feel is most appropriate for their work.  We
recommend that theoretical papers be submitted to PODS and applied ones
to SIGMOD. The same paper or different versions of the same paper should
not be submitted to both conferences simultaneously.  The two
conferences will overlap for two days, but each conference will have a
separate third day without overlap. There will be, however, only one
registration process for the joint, 4-day conference.  Attendees will
receive both proceedings and be encouraged to attend sessions in both
conferences. Some of the technical events, the lunches, and the outing
will be joint events.

Once again, you are invited to participate in what we hope will be an
exciting event.

                            Call for Papers
                  Thirteenth ACM SIGACT-SIGMOD-SIGART
           Symposium on Principles of Database Systems (PODS)
                            May 24-26, 1994

The conference will focus on new developments in the fundamental aspects
of database and knowledge-base systems. Original research papers on the
theory, design, specification, or implementation of database and
knowledge-base systems are solicited.

                           Topics of Interest

Some suggested, although not exclusive, topics of interest are:

Active Databases
Complex Objects
Concurrency Control
Constraint Management
Data Models
Database Programming Languages
Database Persistent Programming
Data Structures
Deductive Databases
Distributed Databases
Incomplete Information and Uncertainty
Integrity and Security
Knowledge Discovery
Knowledge Representation
Nonmonotonic Reasoning
Object-Oriented Databases
Performance Evaluation
Physical and Logical Design
Query Languages
Query Optimization
Spatial and Temporal Data
Transaction Management

                            Paper Submission

You are invited to submit twelve copies of a detailed abstract (not a
complete paper) to the program chair.  A limit of 10 typed pages with
roughly 35 lines/page (about 5000 words or 10K bytes in total) is placed
on submissions. Font size should be 10 points or larger.

The abstract must provide sufficient detail to allow the program
committee to assess the merits of the paper and should include
appropriate references to and comparisons with the literature. It is
recommended that each submission begin with a succinct statement of the
problem, a summary of the main results, and a brief explanation of their
significance and relevance to the conference, all suitable for the
non-specialist. Technical development of the work, directed to the
specialist, should follow.  If the authors believe that more details are
essential to substantiate the main claims of the paper, they may include
a clearly marked appendix to be read at the discretion of the committee.

                            Call for Papers
                            1994 ACM SIGMOD
             International Conference on Management of Data
                            May 25-27, 1994

The 1994 ACM-SIGMOD Conference will bring together researchers,
practitioners, developers and users to explore new concepts, tools and
techniques for database management systems. The conference will provide
a forum for original research contributions as well as practical system
design, implementation and evaluation. The conference will feature panel
sessions, tutorials, exhibits and industrial programs highlighting DBMS
research and technology.

                           Topics of Interest

The major topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Authorization and Security
Concurrency Control and Recovery
Constraint Management
Data Models
Database Programming Languages
Distributed Systems
Engineering and Design Databases
Extensible Databases
Heterogeneous Database Systems
High Performance Systems
Imprecise and Uncertain Information
Knowledge Discovery and Representation
Legacy Databases
Logic and Databases
Logical and Physical Database Design
Multimedia Databases
Object-Oriented Database Systems
Optimization and Tuning Techniques
Parallel Architectures
Query Languages
Real-Time Databases
Rule Processing
Scientific Databases and Applications
Spatiotemporal Databases
User and Application Interfaces
Wireless/Personal Computing
Workstation-Based Architectures

We strongly encourage submission of papers and participation from the
entire international community of database researchers and
practitioners.  We also strongly encourage submission of papers that
propose new approaches to topical areas for which current solutions are
deemed inappropriate. Such papers, while perhaps not as fully developed,
can nonetheless provide new technical directions to the field.

                            Paper Submission

Please submit six copies of an 8000 word original manuscript to the
program chair.

                      Database Challenges Session

Continuing a tradition started last year, SIGMOD solicits short papers
(8 pages maximum) that challenge the database field with new
technologies or applications. Such papers should provide stimulating
ideas or visions that may open up exciting avenues of database research.
Papers will be reviewed and should be submitted as regular SIGMOD
submissions. They should be marked ``Database Challenges''.

                            Exhibits Program

The Exhibits Program will consist of a Video Program and a Demonstration
Program of university and laboratory software prototypes related to
database management systems research and practice. Videos should be
full-length (5 to 20 minutes), submitted in VHS-NTSC format, and
accompanied by a project/system description of up to 3,000 words to
appear in the proceedings. Videos will be judged on technical content,
relevance, originality and presentation.  Publishers are invited to
exhibit books and related journals.  Submissions should be sent to the
program chair, who will forward them to the appropriate organizer.

                       Tutorial and Panel Program

There will be a series of sessions focused on issues relevant to
practitioners of DBMS technology. Each panel or tutorial proposal should
include a one-page description of the subject matter, the name of the
organizer, and for panels, a list of proposed panelists.  Submissions
should be addressed to the program chair, who will forward them to the
appropriate organizer.

I suspect that if database technology really were really "fully
matured" there wouldn't be a need for more database conferences
or improved database products.  ;-)
