Description

Leader of the group Database Architectures: Stefan Manegold.

We, the Database Architectures (DA) research group of CWI, are well known as a top data systems research group, active in the broad area of data (management) systems and infrastructure for supporting data science. Our research group has a strong international reputation in academia and industry for pioneering column store technology, fast compression methods, vectorized query execution, on-line query-driven indexing (cracking), adaptive caching, and integration of statistical languages and analysis in database management systems.


We develop, distribute and maintain the MonetDB open-source system, and we have spawned multiple spin-off companies, including Data Distilleries, VectorWise and MonetDB Solutions. Our team also operates a self-built cluster, SciLens, that – unlike many other computer clusters – is bandwidth-optimized and thus better suited as a data-science infrastructure. We pride ourselves on revealing the real problems in our discipline and coming up with revolutionary solutions that are frequently ahead of their time.

The Conference
The annual ACM SIGMOD/PODS Conference is a leading international forum for database researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore cutting-edge ideas and results, and to exchange techniques, tools, and experiences. The conference includes a fascinating technical program with research and industrial talks, tutorials, demos, and focused workshops. It also hosts a poster session to learn about innovative technology, an industrial exhibition to meet companies and publishers, and a careers-in-industry panel with representatives from leading companies.
