Venue Information


CIDR offers a venue for innovative data systems architectures, as well as a prestigious publication opportunity. CIDR does not compete with the established conferences presenting rigorous treatises in established areas; rather its goal is to air radically new ideas. Such papers are typically speculative or are system evaluations. The visionary papers usually lack rigorous frameworks, simulations of performance, or prototype implementations but present a radical departure from conventional approaches that enables new applications. The prototype descriptions generally are a detailed report on successes and mistakes. The other major DBMS conferences usually reject such submissions because they are not scientific. However, these are often the very papers that offer long term value to the field, and should be widely disseminated.

The conference will be single-tracked. Proceedings will be published both as a website and on CD-ROM. The conference will run every-other year, typically in the fall or winter during non-HTPS years.

Important Dates


The CIDR conference is sponsored by the VLDB Foundation in co-operation with ACM SIGMOD.
