Note that we changed the class start time to 2:50pm!
CS632 is a seminar-style course aimed at PhD-level students, in which we will discuss a collection of important research papers related to database systems. Some of these papers are "classics" from the early days of relational databases. Some are more recent papers that have influenced (or are currently influencing!) the field. At the end of the course, you will have an in-depth understanding of the state of the art in database systems.
The Course Management System (CMS) has been enabled for comment submissions. Please submit the comments for the papers before midnight the day before they are to be discussed in class. The paper for which you need to propose extensions (in addition to the summary) is marked in the timeline with a (*).
