VLDB is a premier annual international forum for data management and database researchers, vendors, practitioners, application developers, and users. The VLDB 2020 conference will feature research talks, tutorials, demonstrations, and workshops. It will cover issues in data management, database and information systems research, since they are the technological cornerstones of the emerging applications of the 21st century.
Papers are to be formatted according to the conference’s camera-ready format, as embodied in the document templates. The maximum research paper length is 12 pages (6-12 pages for vision papers); all the content, including any appendices but excluding the references, must fit on 12 pages. Only the references can extend a paper beyond the 12 page limit, and there is no limit on the number of pages used for them. The conference management tool for the submission of abstracts and papers is accessible at: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/VLDB2020/
PVLDB uses a novel review process designed to promote timely submission, review, and revision of scholarly results. The process will be carried out over 12 submission deadlines during the year preceding the VLDB 2020 conference. The basic cycle will operate as follows:
A Rolling Deadline occurs on the 1st of each month, 5:00 PM Pacific Time (Daylight Savings observed according to US calendar). This deadline is strict and no extensions will be granted. -The first monthly submission deadline for PVLDB Volume 12 is 1 April 2019. The final deadline is 1 March 2020.
For each submission cycle, the CMT site will be open for submissions from the 20th of the previous month. For example, the submissions for February 2020 will be accepted from January 20th onwards.
Initial reviews will usually be available on the 15th of the next month following the submission deadline, and they will include notice of acceptance, rejection, or revision requests.
For revision requests, the reviews will be specific with regard to the expectations from the revision, and only one revision is permitted.
Authors may take up to three months to produce a revised submission. The last three revisions deadlines will be May 15th, June 1st, and July 15th. Note that the June 15th deadline for revisions has been moved to June 1st. June 1, 2020 is the final revision deadline for consideration to present at VLDB 2020; submissions received after this deadline will roll over to VLDB 2021.
The final reviews of revised papers will usually be available by the 15th of the month following the revision submission.
While all attempts will be made to adhere to the schedule mentioned above, authors are advised that reviewing turnaround times may be subject to fluctuations.
For research track papers that belong to a special category (Vision, and Experiments and Analyses), authors MUST append the category tag as a SUFFIX to the title of the paper. For example, “Data Management in the Year 3000 [Vision]”. This must be done both in the paper file and in the CMT submission title.
VLDB is a single-blind conference. Therefore, authors MUST include their names and affiliations on the manuscript cover page.
IMPORTANT CHANGE: A change to the style file has been implemented in August. Please use the provided style file as it contains a uniform way to cite a PVLBD paper.
