VLDB’s Industrial, Applications, and Experience Track covers innovative commercial data management systems, applications and implementations, novel applications of data technologies, and experiences in applying research advances to real-world problems.
The topics addressed may include consumer, enterprise, and societal data management problems. Description of products or product lines must have a strong technical component, with a clear description of use cases and the technology behind it. New applications, challenging use cases, and in depth analysis of technology trends are highly welcomed. This year, we are particularly interested in experience and applications of applying data technology to areas with a strong social impact component.
Specifically, topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Industrial track submissions must be in camera-ready format using the PVLDB formatting instructions. The maximum research paper length is 12 pages, not including references whose pages could extend paper length to beyond the 12 pages limit. There is no limit on the number of pages used for references. Industrial track submissions must be submitted electronically, in pdf format, by March 1, 2018 (5 PM PST) using the Conference Management Tool for VLDB 2018. Notification will be sent on April 15, 2018. When creating a new paper submission, you will be given the option to choose a track. Choose the “Industrial” track for your submission.
