Duplicate submissions are not allowed. A submission is considered to be a duplicate submission if, at any time during the time when the submission is under consideration, there is another paper with the following properties:
"I understand that the paper being submitted must not overlap substantially with any other paper that I am a co-author of and that is currently submitted elsewhere. Furthermore, previously published papers with any overlap are covered prominently in this submission."
Duplicate submissions will be rejected. Questions about this policy or how it applies to your work should be directed to the General Program Chair, Umeshwar Dayal (umeshwar.dayal at hp com).
It is the authors' responsibility to ensure that their submissions adhere strictly to the formatting detailed here. In particular, it is not allowed to modify the format with the objective of squeezing in more material. Submissions that do not comply with the formatting detailed here will be rejected without review.
Please note that papers may be submitted either in the traditional VLDB format or the ACM SIG format. The camera ready submission must use the ACM SIG formatting guidelines, though.
Note that the page length restrictions apply to both formats. The page limit for research papers: 12 pages.
