Abstract

Increasing numbers of database researchers have raised their concerns regarding the "health" of major database conferences. Various problems such as bias in the paper review process and the performance of executive positions are being analyzed. Our team assessed the current state of 3 conferences: SIGMOD, PODS and VLDB through the filter of several "health" parameters by conducting surveys of database researchers. In addition to this, we gathered database information and produced interesting and useful statistics for the database research community.
