Papers will be submitted electronically to:
Papers must be submitted as PDF documents within 12 pages according to the ACM guidelines, which can be found at Templates are available in Word, WordPerfect, and LaTeX (versions 2.09 and 2e). 

For the LaTeX formats, you may use either the standard style or the SIG-alternate style. It is not permissible to change the template’s font size, margins, inter-column spacing, or line spacing, etc. If the authors believe more details are necessary to substantiate the main claims of the paper, they may also include a clearly marked appendix to be read at the discretion of the committee. Papers not conforming to these requirements may be rejected without further consideration. The deadline for abstract submission is August 17, 2012 and the deadline for paper submission is August 24, 2012. Submission deadlines firm; late submissions will not be considered. Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection by November 2, 2012. The results must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere, including the formal proceedings of other symposia or workshops. All authors of accepted papers will be expected to sign copyright release forms. One author of each accepted paper will be expected to present it at the conference. The proceedings will appear in the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series.


An award will be given to the best paper. Also, an award will be given to the best paper written by newcomers to the field of database theory. The latter award will preferentially be given to a paper written only by students; in that case the award will be called “Best Student Paper Award”. The program committee reserves the following rights: not to give an award; to split an award among several papers; and to define the notion of a newcomer. Papers authored or co-authored by Program Committee members are not eligible for any award.
