Proposal Format

Each proposal should include the title of the panel, and the names, affiliations, and brief biographies of a moderator and the participants.

Panel proposals should describe both the proposed content and format of discussion. Panels should largely focus on discussion and debate. We discourage formats that revolve around prepared slides and lengthy individual presentations by participants.

The bulk of the proposal should be a brief description (no more than one page in the ICDE 2016 submission format) describing the panel content and format, and must include examples of provocative questions to be addressed at the panel. The description should clearly answer the following questions:

  1. Why is the topic of current interest to the ICDE community?
  2. Why is the topic well-suited to an open panel discussion?
  3. What should attendees expect to gain from the panel?


Panel proposals should be submitted on or before November 22, 2015 by email to the panel chair Divesh Srivastava, the email is: divesh@research.att.com. The authors will be notified of the decision by December 20, 2015.

Short panel summaries will appear in the ICDE 2016 conference proceedings.
