Seminar "Techniques for Non-Traditional Data Management"

Dr. Thomas Neumann, Dr. Ralf Schenkel


Contents of the Seminar

The seminar discusses very recent scientific conference papers on hot topics in important fields within the broad area of data management. Most of these papers are likely to make impact on research, applications and/or commercial systems in the future. Topics covered include advanced relational problems (top-k processing, query optimization, and transaction management), data management beyond the relational model (RDF engines, probabilistic databases, and semistructured data), new architectures for data management (distributed systems and novel hardware), and recent developments in Web information systems (ranking and social networks).
