CIDR is in danger of losing its way:My Advice to Weikum, Hellerstein and FranklinbyMichael Stonebraker


Slide2 l.jpg

Program Committees in our Field

  • Reward scholarship on narrow ideas

  • Trash “loosy goosey” papers

  • Trash anything half-baked

  • Trash anything that resembles a “war story”

  • Operate by consensus

Net result: SIGMOD/VLDB style conferences

with paper sessions full of LPUs, of interest to 10 people in the world

How Has CIDR Avoided this Fate So Far?

  • Slanted selection of PC members

  • Specific “non-SIGMOD” reviewing guidelines

  • PC is advisory – organizers make actual decisions

    • And one of them reads every paper

    • And the organizers have not operated by consensus

    • E.g. PC reviews sometimes ignored

  • Answer: double-blind reviewing (just kidding)

My Real Advice to the “New Gray Beards”

  • Put your own mark on the conference

    • E.g. might make sense to move to “demo-only” on the theory that “you have nothing to say if you can’t show it”

    • E.g. might make sense to move to “poster-only” on the theory that this fosters discussion

    • YGIGH (your good idea goes here)

My Real Advice to the “New Gray Beards”

  • Ruthlessly ignore reviewer opinions

    • This is really crucial

  • Don’t leave Asilomar

    • Enables a 3 person organizing committee – who can make decisions quickly and easily

  • Figure out some solution to “paper overload”

    • Which is very likely to descend on CIDR
