CALL FOR PAPERS

GENERAL INFORMATION

SBBD is the official event on databases of the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC). It is the largest venue in Latin America for presentation and discussion of research results and applications in the database domain. It usually gathers 400 attendees.

Along with technical sessions, the symposium includes invited talks and tutorials given by distinguished speakers from the national and international database research community. SBBD also promotes a Thesis Workshop, a Demos (Tools) Session, and a Thesis and Dissertation Contest as co-located events.

For the 2017 edition, SBBD will accept JIDM Papers, Full, Short and Vision Papers. Moreover, SBBD 2017 introduces is a new type of submission: papers already accepted or published by a first-class database conference or journal. These papers will not appear in the conference proceedings, but allow the authors to present their work to the community during the conference. Full papers will have two cycles of submissions, while the other categories have a single cycle.

They must be written in English and formatted according to the JIDM template. The templates for submission are available at http://bit.ly/1e77I6W.

VISION PAPERS
Submissions in this category should describe visionary ideas to be presented at the conference. Vision papers should present new problems, new application domains, or new methodologies that are likely to stimulate significant new research. Research results and experiment description are not required in this type of submission.

DISTINGUISHED PUBLISHED PAPERS
Submissions in this category should be papers relevant to the conference topics and published or accepted for publication as full papers in 2016 or 2017 by a first-class conference, such as SIGMOD, VLDB, ICDE, EBDT, and PODS, or journal, such as TODS and the VLDB Journal. They will be accepted/rejected by the SBBD Steering Committee on the grounds of relevance and quality of the original publication venue. These papers will not appear in the conference proceedings and thus cannot be considered as a new publication. The paper can be submitted “as is”, indicating explicitly the place where the work was published. This category aims to attract the best papers of the Brazilian community and give their authors the opportunity to present their work. Papers must be submitted by email to carmem@inf.ufpr.br with the subject “[SBBD2017 Submission] Distinguished Published Paper”.
