COMAD's student paper track
welcomes original submissions whose first author is a student (the
advisor or other student or non-student collaborators may be
co-authors), and once accepted which shall be presented by a
student. The goal of the student paper track is to provide a forum
for student members to present work in progress and to receive
feedback. The student paper track will be part of the main
conference's technical presentation sessions. The accepted papers
will be included in the proceedings of the main conference. Papers
should describe original, unpublished work in progress that
demonstrates insight, creativity, and promise. Topics of interest
are the same as for the main conference. Papers submitted to the
main conference cannot be considered for the student sessions.
Note that having a student session
for the presentation of ongoing work in no way influences the
treatment of student-written papers submitted to the main
conference. Rather, the student session will provide an entirely
separate track emphasizing students' "work in progress" rather than
To ensure wide visibility of
material published at the conference, we plan to make arrangements
with ACM SIGMOD for including the proceedings of the conference in
the SIGMOD on-line and CD-ROM archives. Best Student Paper Award
will be presented at the conference.
Note: For a paper to be treated as a student paper, please submit it as a regular research paper in the Easychair conference management tool, and intimate the same to the PC Co-chair Kamal Karlapalem by email (kamal [AT] iiit [DOT] ac [DOT] in) along with the submission ID and other details of the paper.
