2016 ACM SIGMOD/PODS @ San Francisco, USA
Welcome to the home of the 2016 ACM SIGMOD/PODS Conference, to be held in San Francisco, USA, on June 26th - July 1st, 2016.
The Conference. The annual ACM SIGMOD/PODS Conference is a leading international forum for database researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore cutting-edge ideas and results, and to exchange techniques, tools, and experiences. The conference includes a fascinating technical program with research and industrial talks, tutorials, demos, and focused workshops. It also hosts a poster session to learn about innovative technology, an industrial exhibition to meet companies and publishers, and a careers-in-industry panel with representatives from leading companies.
San Francisco. A unique bridge, cable cars, a sparkling bay, a famous prison, steep streets with beautiful Victorian houses - so many things make San Francisco one of the world's greatest cities to visit. Located in the Bay Area along the Northern California coast, many attractions beyond those in the city can be easily reached: world-famous wine country, including Napa and Sonoma Valley, beautiful beaches, or world's largest trees and wonderful hikes in close National Parks.
The Hyatt Regency. The conference itself will be held in the Hyatt Regency Hotel, located in the financial district in downtown San Francisco. The hotel is very conveniently located close to many activities and landmarks, making this the ideal spot not only for an exciting conference but also for exploring the area.
Social events. The conference banquet will be held at the California Academy of Sciences. The California Academy of Sciences is a Planetarium, Aquarium & Natural History Museum under a Living Roof in San Francisco, and it is among the largest museums of natural history in the world, housing over 26 million specimens.
