The 29th IEEE International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE 2013)


APRIL 8-11, 2013


Call for Papers

The annual ICDE conference addresses research issues in designing, building, managing, and evaluating advanced data-intensive systems and applications. It is a leading forum for researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore cutting-edge ideas and to exchange techniques, tools, and experiences. We invite the submission of original research contributions and industrial papers, as well as proposals for workshops, panels, tutorials, and demonstrations.

ICDE 2013 will be held in Brisbane, Australia, April 8-11, 2013. Brisbane is the capital city of the state of Queensland. The conference will be held at the Sofitel Hotel in the center of Brisbane.

Submission Guidelines

All submissions must be prepared in the IEEE camera-ready format and submitted to the CMT system at Research and industrial paper submissions are limited to 12 pages. A paper submitted to ICDE 2013 cannot be under review for any other conference or journal during the entire time it is considered for ICDE 2013, and it must be substantially different from any previously published work (other than posters or short papers with a length of up to 4 pages when converted into the IEEE format). Submissions to the industrial program may be paper-length or extended abstracts of 1-2 pages. They should present interesting aspects of commercial products and services and lessons learned from practical usage, not research results or prototypes from industry labs.

Submissions are reviewed in a single-blind manner.

All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings. The online proceedings may be published as early as February 1, 2013. Accepted papers will be 12 pages long. The best papers will be selected for extended versions to be published in the IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the authors do not attend the conference to present their paper.
