Submission Guidelines

For format see this page and submit to the CMT research track page. Only submissions in PDF format are accepted. Research paper submissions are limited to 12 pages. A paper submitted to ICDE 2014 cannot be under review for any other conference or journal during the entire time it is considered for ICDE 2014, and it must be substantially different from any previously published work. Submissions are reviewed in a single-blind manner.

Authors of research papers will have an opportunity to give concise feedback on preliminary reviews within a one-week time. All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings. The online proceedings may be published as early as February 1, 2014. 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 none of the authors attends the conference to present their paper.
