|April 7||SIGMOD Program Chair forwards nominated papers to TODS EiC|
|April 15||TODS EiC invites submissions, due October 1|
|October 1||Receive submission|
|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 virtual volume.
