CS6320: Advanced Database Systems


Course Description

We review recent research on systems for database management and data analysis. For instance, we will cover topics such as data processing on emerging hardware architectures, novel query interfaces, visual data management, and database tuning via machine learning.

Each session features a presentation, either from one or two course participants or from an external speaker (from industry or academia). Presentations focus on one or two recent papers on related topics. Course participants are expected to actively participate in all presentations and to prepare between one and two presentation over the semester. Besides presentations, participants work on course projects in teams that relate to recent research in database systems.
