Policy For Inviting ICDT Papers to TODS
Approved December 6, 2002
Amended May 15, 2012
- Selection of the invited ICDT papers will be done by the ICDT PC chair, on the bases of high quality and perceived feasibility of being extended into submissions to TODS. A minimum of 0 and a maximum of 2 papers will be selected in December preceding the conference. Additional papers could be selected for invitation to a special issue or section of TCS.
- The TODS EiC will then invite submission of extended versions of the selected papers, or a subset thereof. Papers not invited for submission in TODS could still be invited for the TCS special issue.
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 relevant TODS guidelines for authors). The invitation would go out in December, requesting a revision and extension by the following June.
- These submissions will be reviewed in the normal manner, but reviewers will be told that the submission was invited upon the recommendation of the ICDT 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 ICDT submission.
- The papers will appear together in a TODS issue and will be clearly visible as being selected from ICDT.
