VLDB 2023: Call for Contributions - Workshops
VLDB 2023 invites submissions for workshop proposals on all topics covered by the conference. Workshop proposals that advance the field of data management to new directions are specially encouraged. VLDB workshops may be half-day or full-day events.
All VLDB 2023 workshops will be "serviced," meaning that logistics such as registration, catering, room allocation, and audio-visual arrangements will be handled by the VLDB conference organizers. The workshop organizers are responsible for defining the technical program and workshop format.
Important Dates (All deadlines below are 5pm PT.)
- Submission deadline: January 24th, 2023)
- Notification: February 7th, 2023
Workshop proposals should be submitted via e-mail (vldbworkshops(AT)gmail.com) to VLDB 2023 workshops co-chairs, Matthias Boehm and Aaron Elmore with “VLDB 2023 Workshop Proposal” in the e-mail subject. Workshop organizers with special requirements should contact the workshop co-chairs as soon as possible; such requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Note that VLDB 2023 may be in a hybrid format, including both in-person and remote participation, depending on how the COVID-19 situation evolves. We expect that all workshops accepted to VLDB 2023 may be compelled to adopt at least some online component.
Proposals must be in pdf, without exceeding 8 pages, and including the following (in the order given):
- workshop title
- chairs and organizers
- contact information
- a description of the workshop's topic and its goals
- a statement on how the workshop complements or relates to other events
- desired workshop format, including preferred date and duration
- a description of the submission review process, including key dates and coverage of how conflicts of interest are handled
- plans for publicity
- plans for disseminating the results of the workshop (e.g., proceedings details)
- potential (or accepted) program committee members
- potential (or accepted) speakers or keynotes
- plans for seeking sponsorship, if any
historical information about each of the most recent previous editions of the workshop (if this is not its first edition), including:
- date, venue, and affiliated event
- number of submitted and accepted papers
- number of participants
Accepted workshops will be scheduled considering the preferred date and duration, the workshop topics, and the number of available slots. We expect that VLDB 2023 will be able to accommodate up to four parallel workshops on each of the two workshop days.
The organizers of accepted workshops are required to announce the workshop and call for papers, solicit submissions, conduct the review process, compose a workshop program, and organize the proceedings. Workshop programs must comply with a joint catering schedule, and workshop programs must be published 15 days prior to the early registration deadline.
Proposal evaluation criteria include relevance to VLDB, scientific quality, quality of proposed organization, evidence of interest (e.g., previous submission and attendance counts), and overlap with other proposals.
