- Selection of the invited SIGMOD papers will be done by the SIGMOD PC
on the bases of high quality and perceived feasibility of being extended
into submissions to TODS. A minimum of 0 and a maximum of 4 papers will
be selected for invitation.
- The TODS EiC will then invite submission of extended versions
of the selected papers, or a subset thereof.
Note that TODS requires at least 30% new material. The new material
should be content material, not just the addition of obvious proofs or a
few more straightforward performance figures. (See the
TODS guidelines for authors).
These submissions will be reviewed in the normal manner, but
reviewers will be told that the submission was invited upon the
recommendation of the SIGMOD PC chair and TODS Editor-in-Chief,
and single-blind reviewing will be used.
Acceptance is not guaranteed. The
editor handling the paper will be responsible for choosing the reviewers;
however, it is expected that at least two of the reviewers will be ones
who reviewed the original SIGMOD submission.
- There will be an accelerated review and resubmission schedule with the
goal of having the papers appear together not too distant from the
SIGMOD Program Chair forwards nominated papers to TODS EiC
TODS EiC invites submissions, due October 1
|February||First review completed, taking four months
|May||Second submission, within three months of receiving the review
|August||Second review completed, taking three months
|September||Final revision, within a month of the review
|December||Paper appears, with a production of three months
This is a very tight schedule. Any paper not meeting this schedule can
appear in a subsequent issue. It is hoped that the December
issue will be a joint SIGMOD/PODS special issue/section.
At some point ACM will adopt a completely online publication
process, in which papers can be "published" (i.e., put on the DL)
as they are accepted. This will allow the schedule to be relaxed.
We expect that all the papers in the issue will be in one
- The special issue (or special section of this issue) may include a
short foreword by the SIGMOD PC chair, perhaps jointly authored
by the PODS PC chair.
