Advanced Seminar (Spring 2003):

Efficient processing of massive data sets


Yossi Matias

Monday 10:00-12:00, Orenstein 110

In this seminar we will discuss various research issues concerning the efficient processing of massive data sets. These include effective ways to represent synopses of massive data sets, algorithms and techniques of handling streaming data, and issues of representation and retrieval in modern information systems. Relevant application domains include

We will concentrate on works which have both theoretical and applied flavor. The students will present papers presented in database and algorithm conferences such as ACM SIGMOD International Conference on Management of Data (SIGMOD), International Conference on Very Large Databases (VLDB), ACM-SIAM Symposium of Discrete Algorithms (SODA) and others. No prior knowledge on databases will be assumed.

The seminar is open to Masters students. Every student will present a paper (or several papers) from the list of suggested papers, and will prepare a summary of the presented subject.
