Stanford, California, USA
PlanetData is supporting its partner CWI on participating the 6th Extremely Large Databases Conference, Workshop & Tutorials (XLDB), held in Stanford, California, USA, on September 10-13, 2012.
In response to the exploding need for systems and tools capable of managing and analysing extremely large data sets, we are organizing the 6th Extremely Large Database Conference. The main goals of the conference are:
- Encourage and accelerate the exchange of ideas between users trying to build extremely large databases worldwide and database solution providers
- Share lessons, trends, innovations, and challenges related to building extremely large databases
- Facilitate the development and growth of practical technologies for extremely large databases
- Strengthen, expand, and engage the XLDB community
This year, the XLDB conference focuses on practical solutions.
During the conference, PlanetData member Ying Zhang gave a lightning talk and a poster on "Astronomical Data Processing Using SciQL, an SQL Based Query Language for Array Data", and a demonstration on "Scientific Data Processing Using SciQL".
