ICDT is a scientific conference on research in the foundations of database systems. ICDT provides an international forum for the communication of research advances on the theoretical foundations of database systems. Originally biennial, the ICDT conference has been held annually and jointly with EDBT (Extending Database Technology) since 2009.
The 20th edition of the conference will most likely be held in Venice (Italy), from March 21st to March 24th, 2017.
ICDT, as well as PODS, are changing their submission schedules. Both conferences will have two submission deadlines, with the first submission cycle earlier than the deadlines for prior editions of either conference.
For ICDT 17 there will be two submission cycles with the following dates:
|Submission Cycle||Abstract Deadline||Full Paper Deadline||Notification|
|First||March 18, 2016||March 25, 2016||May 29, 2016|
|Second||Sept 11, 2016||Sept 18, 2016||Nov 27, 2016|
For papers in the first submission cycle that are judged to be of high quality but with substantial defects (i.e., correctable defects beyond the changes that could be addressed by the standard transformation of a submission to a camera-ready) ICDT will offer the possibility of revision. Submission of a revision for such a paper will be due by September 18, 2016. It is expected that revised papers that properly address the concerns of the reviewers will be accepted.
All submissions will be electronic via EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icdt2017.
Papers must be in English and provide sufficient detail to allow the program committee to assess their merits. The results must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere, including the proceedings of other symposia or workshops.
Papers must be submitted as PDF documents no longer than 15 pages excluding references, using the LIPIcs style. Additional details may be included in a clearly marked appendix which, however, will be read at the discretion of the program committee.
The proceedings will appear in the Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs) series, based at Schloss Dagstuhl. This guarantees that the proceedings will be available online and free of charge, while the authors retain the rights over their work.
At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to register at the conference and to present the paper.
Any topic related to the principles of data management is relevant to this symposium. Contributions that connect data management to theoretical computer science, and those which connect database theory and database practice, are particularly welcome.
In particular, ICDT welcomes contributions in the following areas:
ICDT Council Chair: Thomas Schwentick
ICDT 2017 Program Chair: Michael Benedikt
ICDT 2017 Proceedings and Publicity Chair: Giorgio Orsi
