June 10, 2016: I will teach CSE532: Theory of Database Systems this fall.

This course covers recent advances in data management systems. Topics include complex queries and optimizations, XML data management, spatial data management, distributed and parallel databases, NoSQL databases, and MapReduce based data processing systems. We will discuss the foundations of data models, transaction models, storage, indexing and querying methods for these data management systems. We will demonstrate real world databases with biomedical data, geospatial data and/or social media data.

December 23, 2015: We won EDBT 2016 Test of Time Award.

Our paper “Bridging Physical and Virtual Worlds: Complex Event Processing for RFID Data Streams” is selected for the EDBT 2016 Test of Time Award. The International Conference on Extending Database Technology (EDBT) is a premium conference on database technologies. The conference awards the EDBT test-of-time (ToT) award, with the goal of recognizing one paper, or a small number of papers, presented at EDBT earlier and that have best met the “test of time”, i.e. that has had the most impact in terms of research, methodology, conceptual contribution, or transfer to practice over the past decade(s). papers, presented at EDBT earlier and that have best met the “test of time”, i.e. that has had the most impact in terms of research, methodology, conceptual contribution, or transfer to practice over the past decade(s).
