Database Lunch Schedule: Spring 2011

The database lunch is the weekly informal meeting of students and faculty interested in data management and data mining at Cornell. We usually have a paper presentation of seminal or recent papers of general interest. Lunches take place every Monday at noon in 5130 Upson Hall, with the paper presentation starting at 12:10 and ending by 1pm including questions.

If you are interested in presenting a paper or have any questions, please talk to Lucja.
