The PODS symposium series, held in conjunction with the SIGMOD
conference series, provides a premier annual forum for the
communication of new advances in the theoretical foundations of data
management, traditional or non-traditional (see

For the 35th edition, PODS continues to aim to broaden its scope,
and calls for research papers providing original, substantial
contributions along one or more of the following aspects:
- deep theoretical exploration of topical areas central to data
- new formal frameworks that aim at providing the basis for deeper
   theoretical investigation of important emerging issues in data
   management; and
- validation of theoretical approaches from the lens of practical
   applicability in data management.

TOPICS that fit the interests of the symposium include the following:

- design, semantics, query languages
- data models, data structures, algorithms for data management
- concurrency and recovery, distributed and parallel databases, cloud 
- model theory, logics, algebras, computational complexity
- graph databases and (semantic) Web data
- data mining, information extraction, search
- data streams
- data-centric (business) process management, workflows, web services
- incompleteness, inconsistency, uncertainty in databases
- data and knowledge integration and exchange, data provenance, views 
and data warehouses, metadata management
- domain-specific databases (multi-media, scientific, spatial, temporal, 
- deductive databases
- data privacy and security

Submitted papers should be at most twelve pages, excluding bibliography,
using reasonable page layout and font size of at least 10pt (note that
the SIGMOD style file does not have to be followed). Additional details
may be included in an appendix, which, however, will be read at the
discretion of the program committee. Papers that are longer than twelve
pages (excluding the appendix) or in font size smaller than 10pt risk
rejection without consideration of their merits. The submission process
will be through the Web at
http://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pods2016. Note that, unlike the
SIGMOD conference, PODS does not use double-blind reviewing, and
therefore PODS submissions should have the names and affiliations of
authors listed on the paper.

The results of submitted paper must be unpublished and not submitted
elsewhere, including the formal proceedings of other symposia or
workshops. Authors of an accepted paper will be expected to sign
copyright release forms, and one author is expected to present it at the

Best Paper Award: An award will be given to the best submission, as

Best Student Paper Award: There will also be an award for the best
submission, as judged by the program committee, written by a student or

time of submission, the author is enrolled in a program at a university
or institution leading to a doctoral/master’s/bachelor’s degree. The
program committee reserves the right to give both awards to the same
paper, not to give an award, or to split an award among several papers.
Papers authored or co-authored by program committee members are not
eligible for an award.
