I am spoiled — I get to work with a brilliant bunch of students and colleagues. They’ve been doing some really amazing research recently, and I’m happy to report that they’re getting some of the recognition they deserve:
- Kuang Chen, Harr Chen and Neil Conway‘s work on Usher (intelligent forms) was accepted to ICDE 2010 and awarded the Best Student Paper award. Congrats, gentlemen! And thanks to Tapan Parikh, co-advisor/author.
- Daisy Wang and Eirinaios Michelakis‘s initial work on extracting structure from text using SQL was also accepted to ICDE 2010 in short form (with more to come!) (Co-advised by Mike Franklin and Minos Garofalakis).
- On the BOOM front, our initial paper on BOOM Analytics was accepted to Eurosys 2010. This was a big team effort, involving Peter Alvaro, Tyson Condie, Neil Conway and Rusty Sears from Berkeley, and Khaled Elmeleegy from Yahoo! Research.
- Our work on Hadoop Online (HOP) was accepted to NSDI 2010. This was driven by Tyson Condie, with yeoman work from the BOOM gang (especially Neil, but also Peter, Rusty and Khaled) .
I’ve blogged about all these projects before, and since most of them are in their initial stages I fully expect there will be more to report in future. Meanwhile, it’s nice to see these folks getting recognized for their work, and it will be interesting to get some feedback at the conferences.
