New national bi-weekly seminar: The Dutch Seminar on Data Systems Design (DSDSD)

DSDSD is co-organized with TUE, TU Delft, and Uva and brings together researchers in data systems. The format is a 90-minute session with two talks, on Friday late afternoon; so DSDSD marks the start of weekend, but is time-wise also friendly for US based speakers. In each seminar, there is one invited speaker from abroad and one local speaker.

CWI has initiated a new national bi-weekly seminar called the Dutch Seminar on Data Systsems Design (DSDSD).

DSDSD is co-organized with TUE, TU Delft, and Uva and brings together researchers in data systems. The format is a 90-minute session with two talks, on Friday late afternoon; so DSDSD marks the start of weekend, but is time-wise also friendly for US based speakers. In each seminar, there is one invited speaker from abroad and one local speaker. There have been two seminars already, this Friday is the third.

We have had two succesful seminars so far, the first with Semih Salihoglu (University of Waterloo) and Hannes Muehleisen (CWI) and the second with Andy Pavlo (Carnegie Mellon University) and Peter Boncz. Friday is the third, with Viktor Leis (University of Erlangen) and Sam Ansmink (CWI). In these seminars, we see 60-70 attendees so far. In the following weeks there will be talks also by TUE and TU Delft.
