ACM SIGMOD 2019 New Researcher Symposium
Every year, the SIGMOD Conference includes a symposium with advice on starting a career in data management. These symposia are both informative and entertaining; they are geared towards graduate students and junior researchers but they often attract a broader audience.
This year's symposium will take place on Tuesday July 2, 6-8 PM and the topic will be Publication strategies for new researchers. The symposium will discuss issues that span the gamut from questions on how scholarship is evaluated, advice on venue selection, strategies to tolerate randomness in reviewing, and suggestions on how to become a more engaged member of the data management community. The emphasis will be on new researchers ranging from early graduate school to early post-graduation.
Our panelists will span different career stages, geographical regions, and research styles. Each panelist will give a 10-minute presentation based on their personal experiences and perspectives gained over the years. After the presentations, an informal discussion will ensue based on questions from the audience.
