Policy For Inviting ICDT Papers to TODS

Approved December 6, 2002
Amended May 15, 2012

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

  3. 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.
  4. The papers will appear together in a TODS issue and will be clearly visible as being selected from ICDT.
