SBBD is the official event on databases of the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC). It is the largest venue in Latin America. 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. 

For the 2020 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.

The safety of all participants is our priority. After evaluating the current COVID-19 situation in Brazil, the organization decided that SBBD 2020 will now be an online event.




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 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 sing-round review process. Full papers must be written in Portuguese or English and not exceed 12 pages, according to the SBC template.

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 templates for submission are available here. Papers must be submitted by the deadline through the JEMS website. Questions regarding FULL paper submission should be directed to the PC Chairs.

  • Abstracts and submissions due: May 31st, June 14th, 2020
  • Notification due: July 20th, 2020
  • Camera-ready due: August 15th, 2020


Submissions in this category should be papers relevant to the conference topics and published or accepted for publication as full papers in 2019 or 2020 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 PC chairs with the subject “[SBBD2020 Submission] Distinguished Published Paper”.
