--Jiannan Wang (SIGMOD 2021 Publicity Chair)


The 2021 ACM SIGMOD/PODS Conference, Xi’an, Shaanxi, China, June 20 - 25, 2021.

We solicit proposals for tutorials to be presented at the 2021 ACM SIGMOD conference on topics that are of interest to the database community. This includes latest developments in particular areas of data management and data science & engineering, as per the SIGMOD topics of interest, but also interdisciplinary topics or foundational introductions to related areas. Tutorials can come in different flavors, depending on the area covered, for instance:

* Survey: must provide an in-depth survey of the chosen topic with the option of describing particular pieces of work in detail.
* Primer: a more fundamental introduction to an area less familiar to the database community that has potential impact on database research or could benefit from database support.

A meaningful summary of open research issues on the topic should be included in all cases. Each accepted tutorial is expected to jump-start non-experts, equipping them with the crucial knowledge required to commence research on the topic. The tutorials will be held interspersed in the regular SIGMOD program.

Submission Guidelines
Tutorial proposals should be no more than six pages in the same format as the SIGMOD 2021 research papers. Proposals should be submitted via CMT to the SIGMOD 2021 Tutorials track.

Each submission should include the following information:

* The proposed tutorial title.
* The preferred duration (1.5 or 3 hours). If both options are possible, the proposal should identify which material will be included for each length.
* An abstract.
* Enough detail to provide a sense of both the scope of the material to be covered and the depth to which it will be covered.
* A comprehensive bibliography for the proposed tutorial.
* A short description of the intended audience and any prerequisite knowledge for attendees.
* A very brief biography of the proposed presenter(s), along with contact information.
* If (part of) the tutorial material or an earlier version of it has been or will be presented elsewhere before SIGMOD 2021, the proposal should indicate those events (and dates), and describe how the current proposal differs from the previous editions.

For an accepted tutorial, a description paper will be included in the conference proceedings. Tutorial slides are expected to be made available to conference participants and also uploaded as supplementary material to the ACM Digital Library (linked to the tutorial description) after the tutorial.
