Camera ready instructions

Authors of accepted papers should submit their final camera-ready papers to https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=webdb2015 by 5pm EDT on Thursday, May 7, 2015 (2015-05-07, 21:00 UTC). To upload the camera-ready version, simply remove the current PDF from the system and and upload a new file. If you decide to update the order of authors or the title of your paper, you should send an email to stoyanovich@drexel.edu to ensure that these changes are reflected in the proceedings.

Before you can complete your camera-ready, you must fill out the ACM Permission and Release Form, so that your paper can be published in the ACM Digital Library. In addition, accepted papers will be made available on the workshop's Web site. ACM has an automated copyright form collection system for ACM published proceedings. The contact authors of accepted papers will be sent the ACM form and complete instructions. Once your copyright form is received by the ACM, they will send you exact wording of the copyright text that should appear on the first page of your submission, in the bottom-left corner.

Camera-ready papers should not exceed six pages in length, plus up to 2 pages for references. Papers should be formatted using the ACM Word or LaTeX style templates to prepare their articles. Templates are available at http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates Irrespective of whether you used Word or LaTeX to prepare your camera-ready document, all submissions must be in PDF.

When preparing your paper, you must ensure that:

  1. The paper uses Type 1 fonts (scalable), not Type 3 (bit-mapped). All fonts must be embedded within the PDF file.
  2. Pages are not numbered.
  3. Your paper has the appropriate copyright text on the first page, in the bottom-left corner. The exact text of your copyright text will depend on the options you select when submitting your copyright form to the ACM (see above). An example of the copyright block is as follows:
    Permission to make digital or hard copies of all or part of this work for
    personal or classroom use is granted without fee provided that copies are not
    made or distributed for profit or commercial advantage and that copies bear
    this notice and the full citation on the first page. Copyrights for components
    of this work owned by others than ACM must be honored. Abstracting with
    credit is permitted. To copy otherwise, or republish, to post on servers or to
    redistribute to lists, requires prior specific permission and/or a fee. Request
    permissions from Permissions@acm.org.

Theme

The theme of this year's workshop is "Freshness, Correctness, Quality of Information and Knowledge on the Web". This theme encompasses a wide range of research directions, from focused crawling and time-aware search and ranking, to information extraction and data integration, to management, alignment, curation, and integration of structured knowledge, and to information corroboration and provenance. These techniques are of particular interest to the workshop this year. However, papers on all aspects of the Web and Databases are solicited.

 

Topics

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Submissions

Submissions are limited to 6 pages plus references. The submission is not double-blind. Each research paper is to be submitted as a single PDF file. Submitted papers must print without difficulty on a variety of printers, using Adobe Acrobat Reader. It is the responsibility of the authors to ensure that their submitted PDF file will print easily on simple default configurations. Submissions must follow the ACM Proceedings Format, using one of the templates provided at http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html for Word and LaTeX (version 2e). (For LaTeX, both Option 1 and Option 2 are acceptable.) The font size, margins, inter-column spacing, and line spacing in the templates must be kept unchanged.

WebDB requests novel submissions. The same guidelines as for the main SIGMOD conference (Section “Duplicate Submissions”) applies.

Please submit your papers through Easychair here: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=webdb2015
