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.

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 and a Demos (Tools) Session as co-located events. For the 2018 edition, SBBD will accept JIDM Papers, Full, Short, Vision, Industrial and Distinguished Papers.

SBBD 2018 will be held from August 25-26, 2018, right before the VLDB 2018 (http://vldb2018.lncc.br/). SBBD 2018 and VLDB 2018 will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, at the Windsor Barra Hotel. This will be a great opportunity for the SBBD community to attend VLDB, which is a premier annual international forum for data management and database researchers, vendors, practitioners, application developers, and users.

Submission Instructions

JIDM PAPERS
Submissions in this category should present new and exciting research results in any of the SBBD topics of interest. JIDM papers should describe complete research results. They must not have been simultaneously submitted to any other forum (conference or journal), nor should they have already been published elsewhere.

They must be written in English and formatted according to the JIDM template. The templates for submission are available at http://bit.ly/1e77I6W. Papers must be submitted directly to the journal editor using the SEER submission site (https://seer.lcc.ufmg.br/index.php/jidm). Submissions will be judged by the JIDM editorial board. For this category, submissions are made continuously throughout the year. Authors of papers that are accepted until June 25th will be invited to present their paper during SBBD 2018 and the paper will be published in the Journal of Information and Data Management (JIDM).

FULL PAPERS
Submissions in this category should present research results and discussion in any of the SBBD topics of interest. They are mainly targeted to the Brazilian DB community for research diffusion. Full papers submitted to SBBD must not have been simultaneously submitted to any other forum (conference or journal), nor should they have already been published elsewhere. The acceptance of a paper implies that at least one of its authors will register for the symposium to present it. Submitted papers will be reviewed based on originality, relevance, technical soundness and clarity of presentation. SBBD will have a two-round review process where the authors get to see a first version of the reviews and are allowed to write a rebuttal to defend their paper against the comments of the reviewers. In the rebuttal, the authors may propose to do a few things to fix small problems in the paper for the final camera-ready version of the paper.

Full papers must be written in Portuguese or English and not exceed 12 pages, according to the SBC template. The templates for submission are available at http://bit.ly/1coeoWk. Papers must be submitted by the deadline through JEMS website at:

The acceptance of a paper implies that at least one of its authors will register for the symposium to present it. Submitted papers will be reviewed based on originality, relevance, technical soundness and clarity of presentation.

Short papers must be written in Portuguese or English and not exceed 6 pages, according to the SBC template. The templates for submission are available at http://bit.ly/1coeoWk. Papers must be submitted by the deadline through JEMS website at

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 2017 or 2018 by a first-class conference, such as SIGMOD, VLDB, ICDE, EDBT, 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 bfl@cin.ufpe.br with the subject “[SBBD2018 Submission] Distinguished Published Paper”.

BEST PAPER AWARDS
SBBD 2018 will have the following awards, which will be announced during the conference: Best Paper Award (Prêmio José Mauro de Castilho), Best Student Paper Award and Best Short Paper Award.

The awards will be conferred to the author(s) of a paper presented at the conference. The decision criterion will consider both the paper quality and the oral presentation quality. Candidates to “Best Student Paper Award” should be exclusively presented by students. A paper will be considered as candidate to “Best Student Paper Award” if the first author of the paper is a student, though the list of authors may include senior members.

The best full, short, vision and student papers submitted to SBBD will be invited to submit an extended and revised version to the Journal of Information and Data Management (JIDM).

OTHER INFORMATION
Authors of accepted papers must register and present their papers during the conference.

Students with accepted papers may apply for the Student Volunteers program at the SBBD 2018. Full registration to SBBD 2018 will be provided as well as funding support. Both undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to apply. In addition to assisting with different aspects of the SBBD, this is a great opportunity to meet and network with international academics, researchers, and industry practitioners. Students will be required to work a minimum number of hours during the conference, giving them time to engage in important education and career-advancing activities such as tutorials, technical talks, panels and poster sessions.

Venue

In its 33rd edition, the symposium will be held in Rio de Janeiro, in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from August 25-26, 2018. This year SBBD is being organized by Seção de Engenharia de Computação, Instituto Militar de Engenharia (IME). Rio de Janeiro is one of the most visited cities in the Southern Hemisphere and is known for its natural settings, Carnival, samba, bossa nova, and beautiful beaches. In addition to the beaches, some of the most famous landmarks include the giant statue of Cristo Redentor atop Corcovado mountain; Sugarloaf Mountain with its cable car; the Sambódromo(Sambadrome), a permanent grandstand-lined parade avenue which is used during Carnival; and Maracanã Stadium, one of the world’s largest football stadiums.
