Paper Submission Instructions


We solicit two page white papers on various topics related to sustainable energy-efficient data management. The whitepapers should describe the vision (research directions, offering the most promise of impact) of the participant and and evidence that pursuing this vision will lead to major advances in the area of data management and IT. Furthermore, the white paper should include a couple of paragraphs on the background and experience of the participant related to the field. Please note, whitepapers that present mature or already-published work will not be accepted. Acceptance will be based on several factors including the quality of the whitepaper and the ability to form a diverse program in terms of topics and participants.
