SoCal DB Day 2018

October 19, 2018
SDSC Auditorium, UC San Diego, La Jolla, CA
https://sites.google.com/eng.ucsd.edu/socaldb18/home?authuser=1

Registration deadline: September 12, 2018

This is a one-day workshop-style event to bring together academic DB/data management researchers in SoCal and DB-related companies in CA. The goal is to connect students with relevant technical folks in industry and to foster a closer community of SoCal DB researchers and aficionados. The topics of interest include all aspects of databases and data management–theory, algorithms, systems, hardware, HCI aspects, and DB-backed applications–as well as intersections with other fields. The program will include a few invited talks from academia and industry, lightning talks from industry, research updates from academic DB groups, and poster presentations by students. Attendance is free for all academics (faculty, students, and staff). We already have confirmations of participation from the academic DB groups of UCI, UCLA, UCR, UCSB, and USC, as well as from many companies.
