For close to two decades, the International Conference on Management of Data (COMAD), modeled along the lines of ACM SIGMOD, has been the premier international database conference hosted in India. The first COMAD was held in 1989, and it has been held on a nearly annual basis since then (except for a few breaks such as in the years when VLDB and ICDE were held in India). COMAD has always had a significant international participation, with about 30% of the papers being from outside India, including Europe, USA and East/South-East Asia.
As of 2010, the conference runs as an event of the newly formed Computer Society of India (CSI) Special Interest Group on Data (SIGDATA).
This year's program will have a special "Work in Progress" track designed as a forum for presenting ongoing work and getting feedback. The accepted submissions in this track will be presented as posters. Only the abstracts of the submissions will be included in the proceedings of the conference. This will not preclude the authors from submitting the full version of their paper to another conference.
