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. SBBD 2019 will take place in Fortaleza, Brazil.

Along with technical sessions, the symposium includes invited talks, tutorials and mini-courses given by distinguished speakers from the national and international database research community. SBBD also promotes a Thesis Workshop, a Demos (Tools) Session and a Ph.D. Thesis and Master Dissertations Contest as co-located events. For the 2019 edition, SBBD will accept JIDM Papers, Full, Short, Vision, Industrial and Distinguished Papers for presentation. This year, papers submitted in the categories Full, Short, Vision, and Industrial will be judged through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are concealed from the reviewers and the identities of the reviewers are hidden from the authors.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

FULL, SHORT, VISION AND INDUSTRIAL PAPERS

All papers submitted in these categories must be written so as to allow double-blind review, which means that authors need to ensure that their submissions do not give away their identity, both in the text and in the references, following the Anonymity Requirements for Double-Blind Reviewing. The specific instructions for each category is described below.

FULL PAPERS

Submissions in this category should present research results and discussion in any of the SBBD topics of interest. 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 here.

Papers must be submitted by the deadline through JEMS website at: https://submissoes.sbc.org.br/sbbd2019_fullpapers. Questions regarding FULL paper submission should be directed to dorneles@inf.ufsc.br.

SHORT PAPERS

Submissions in this category should present initial results or on-going work in any of the SBBD topics of interest. Short 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. Short papers must be written in Portuguese or English, pre-fix “Short Paper:” to the title, and not exceed 6 pages, according to the SBC template.

The templates for submission are available here.

JIDM AND DISTINGUISHED PAPERS

JIDM PAPERS

Authors of papers that are accepted for JIDM publication until August 5th will be invited to present their paper during SBBD 2019. They must be written in English and formatted according to the JIDM template. Submissions will be judged by the JIDM editorial board and are made continuously throughout the year.

The templates for submission are available here.

Papers must be submitted by the deadline through SEER submission site at: https://periodicos.ufmg.br/index.php/jidm. Questions regarding JIDM paper submission should be directed to dorneles@inf.ufsc.br.

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 2018 or 2019 by a highly competitive conference. 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 dorneles@inf.ufsc.br with the subject “[SBBD2019 Submission] Distinguished Published Paper”.

ANONYMITY REQUIREMENTS FOR DOUBLE-BLIND REVIEWING

Full, Short, Vision and Industrial papers submitted to SBBD 2019 will go through a ”double-blind” reviewing process: the PC members will not know the identity of the authors and the identities of the reviewers are hided from the authors. The authors need to ensure that their submissions do not give any tip about their identity, both in the text and in the references. To ensure anonymity of authorship, in the submission process, authors must at least do the following: (i) authors’ names and affiliations must not appear anywhere in the paper (even on the title page); (ii) funding sources, research group members, other colleagues or collaborators, must not be acknowledged anywhere in the paper; (iii) source file naming must also be generated to avoid identifying the authors in the paper’s associated metadata (take care your authorship is not inferred by looking into the PDF file source).
You must also be careful in referring to related past work in the paper. You must refer your past work in the third person (just as you were any other work related to your). This allows you to set the context for your submission, while at the same time preserving anonymity. You should still include all relevant work of your own in the references in the third person; omitting them could disclose your identity by negation. However, self-references should be limited to the essential ones, and extended versions of the submitted paper (e.g., technical reports or URLs for downloadable versions) must not be referenced.
The objective is to allow the reader to fully comprehend the context of the submitted paper while preserve anonymity. It is the responsibility of authors to do their best to preserve anonymity. Papers that do not follow the guidelines, or otherwise disclose the identity of the authors, are subject to instantly rejection.

BEST PAPER AWARDS

SBBD 2019 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. Only papers submitted in the categories JIDM, full and short are considered.
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 2019. 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.
