Call for Industry Track

The ICDE 2017 Industry Track will feature high quality submissions describing new systems or new techniques in all areas of data management and engineering.  Unlike in previous years, the Industry Track is distinct from the Applications Track, allowing for a focus on technological solutions as well as encouraging core, industry-based applications papers. The ICDE 2017 Industry Track will emphasize submissions that describe innovative industrial advancements in relevant areas including (but not limited to) database and data management systems, scalable machine learning and data mining systems, information retrieval, knowledge discovery, data quality and cleaning, real-time business intelligence, information integration, cloud-based systems, mobile data management, data systems on new hardware. Submissions that do not articulate the innovative aspect of a product or project (including relevant open source software), but rather give a general overview, are discouraged.

The Industry Track will accept short (6 pages) as well as long (12 pages) submissions.
