SIGMOD Record solicits contributions of articles, technical notes, reports, and proposals for special sections.

Priority is given to papers that deal with current issues of interest to a broad audience.

They should also be formatted for letter size pages and must contain all fonts embedded. Submitted articles are limited to 6 pages unless prior agreement with the Editor.
