Papers

Submission Site

All research papers must be submitted to the CMT system at the link: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/ICDE2021


Notes

Manuscripts must be prepared in accordance with the IEEE format.

Research papers must not exceed 12 pages, including the bibliography and any appendix. Only electronic submissions in PDF format will be considered. The submission process will be handled electronically — more details will become available on the conference web site shortly.

A paper submitted to IEEE ICDE’2021 cannot be under review for any other conference or journal during the entire time it is considered for ICDE’2021, and it must be substantially different from any previously published work. Submissions will be reviewed in a single-blind manner.

All accepted papers will be presented as posters at ICDE’2021, but the PC may decide to select only a subset of the accepted papers for a “conventional” presentation slot during the conference. However, all accepted papers will be treated equally in the conference proceedings, which are the persistent, archival record of the conference.

The best papers (as judged by the ICDE’2021 PC) will be selected for extended versions to be published in the IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering (TKDE). IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if none of the authors attends the conference to present their paper.

Submissions that were rejected in the first round of IEEE ICDE’2021 research track are not eligible for re-submission to the second round.


Conflicts of Interest

During submission of a research paper, the submission site will request information about Conflicts of Interest (COI) of the paper’s authors with program committee (PC) members. It is the full responsibility of all authors of a paper to identify all (and only) PC members with potential COIs as per the definition provided on the submission site. Papers with incorrect or incomplete COI information as of the submission closing time are subject to immediate rejection.

Definition of Conflict of Interest (COI): A paper author has a COI with a PC member when and only when one or more of the following conditions hold:

  • The PC member is a co-author of the paper, or has been a co-author of a paper in the last 3 years or 4 (or more) papers in the last 10 years.
  • The PC member has been a co-worker in the same company or university within the past two years.
  • The PC member has been a collaborator within the past two years.
  • The PC member is or was the author’s primary thesis advisor, no matter how long ago.
  • The author is or was the PC member’s primary thesis advisor, no matter how long ago.
  • The PC member is a relative or close personal friend of the author.
