Project Meeting

CWI Database Architecture Group received the Challenges & Visions Track best paper award during the 2011 International Conference on Very Large Data Bases (VLDB) in Seattle, WA, USA. VLDB is the leading international conference on database management. Kersten received this prize for the publication ‘The Researcher’s Guide to the Data Deluge: Querying a Scientific Database in just a Few Seconds’, co-authored with CWI colleagues Stefan Manegold, Stratos Idreos and Erietta Liarou.

The paper presents a visionary research agenda for interactive exploration of extremely large databases, especially in the area of scientific data management where ingestion of multiple Terabytes of data on a daily basis is foreseen. A major innovation is required to aid scientists in their data exploration journey, where hitherto prevalent assumptions of complete and correct results should be traded against instant response and insight into the database collection at hand.
