Submission Guidelines for Panel Proposals

Each proposal should include the title of the panel, the names, affiliations, and brief biographies of the moderator and the panelists, and a brief (no more than one page in the ICDE 2018 submission format) description of the content and format of the discussion.
Panels should focus on discussion and debate. We discourage formats that revolve around prepared slides and lengthy individual presentations by the panelists. Proposals should include specific examples of provocative questions to be addressed by the panel, and 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?

Short panel summaries will appear in the ICDE 2018 conference proceedings. The submission must be sent via email to
