A team consisting of CSE professor Vassilis Tsotras and student Christina Pavlopoulou, together with Prof. Michael J. Carey from UCI has received the SIGMOD Research Highlight Award. The paper is titled "Revisiting Runtime Dynamic Optimization for Join Queries in Big Data Management Systems".
The SIGMOD Research Highlight Award aims to showcase a set of research projects that exemplify core database research. In particular, these projects address an important problem, represent a definitive milestone in solving the problem, and have the potential of significant impact. The
initiative of the SIGMOD Research Highlights also aims to make the selected works widely known in the database community, to our industry partners, and potentially to the broader ACM community.
