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

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. CIDR Leadership is Being Passed On • So how to avoid the SIGMODification of CIDR? • Answer: double-blind reviewing (just kidding)

  5. 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)

  6. 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
