Call for Demonstrations

COMAD 2006 seeks proposals for live demonstrations of innovative database system and information retrieval research. Research prototypes as well as commercial products are welcome. However, COMAD is not a forum for marketing or sales presentations. The presenter is expected to understand the system being demonstrated and explain the contributions of the system to the audience. Demonstrations of previously published systems are also welcome. All demonstration submissions must be within four pages in IEEE proceeding style (double-columned pages) and should provide a short description of the demonstrated system, a summary of its novel characteristics, the list of functions and features that are going to be demonstrated, and state the significance of the contribution to database and information retrieval research. All the demonstration proposals should be submitted electronically to Manish Bhide (abmanish AT
