We accept papers authored by students, PhD students or any other researchers. We do not define any formal age restrictions for authors of contributions. However, in case of borderline papers, i.e. papers balancing on the acceptance / rejection boundary, preference will be given to the contributions whose authors are students or PhD students. Papers must be written and presented in English.
We admit original papers of the following types:
- Full research papers presenting the accomplished research up to 8 pages length. Such papers do not have limits on co-authors.
- Research-in-progress reports which should contain an abstract describing the problem of interest and the particular goals of the research, a short description of related work of other researchers with analysis of differences between the existing methods and the ones proposed by the author, a summary of results achieved and future work. Normally, such papers should be solely authored (although the scientific supervisor should be specified). The length of such papers should not exceed 4 pages.
- Industrial papers intended for demonstrating novel or non-trivial applications of database and information systems.
Every paper regardless of its type will be reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee and authors will get the reviews together with the notification of acceptance/rejection.
For the camera-ready version of paper, authors are required to provide (in a separate file) a description of changes made to their paper and how the reviewer’s comments were taken into account. Then PC chairs can reject a paper if the submission was not improved.
Extended versions of the “best” few papers for the colloquium will be invited for submission for the scientific journal Vestnik of Yaroslav the Wise Novgorod State University. This journal is recognized by the Higher Attestation Commission of Russia (VAK). Extended versions should contain at least 30% new material beyond the colloquium, clearly cite the prior publication and state what is new.
Papers should be prepared using one of the provided templates (LATEX or MS Word) and submitted electronically via the SYRCoDIS submission and review system. Once you follow the link, log in to the system or, if you do not have a login, you need to sign up for an account and follow the instructions.
