The Dutch Seminar on Data Systems Design (DSDSD) is an initiative to bring together research groups working on data systems in Dutch universities and research institutes. We hold bi-weekly talks on Fridays from 4:00PM to 5:30PM CET for and by researchers and practitioners designing (and implementing) data systems. The objective is to establish a new forum for the Dutch Data Systems community to come together, foster collaborations between its members, and bring in high quality international speakers. We would like to invite all researchers, especially also PhD students, who are working on related topics to join the events. It is an excellent opportunity to receive feedback early on by researchers in your field.

Upcoming talks

On April 23rd DSDSD will feature talks by Sourav Bhowmick (NTU Singapore) and George Fletcher (TU/e).

Talk 1

Title: TED Learn: Towards Technology-Enabled Database Education

Speaker: Sourav Bhowmick (NTU Singapore)

Abstract: There is continuous demand for database-literate professionals in today’s market due to widespread usage of relational database management system (RDBMS) in the commercial world. Such commercial demand has played a pivotal role in the offering of database systems course as part of an undergraduate computer science (CS) degree program in major universities around the world. Furthermore, not all working adults dealing with RDBMS have taken an undergraduate database course. Hence, they often need to undergo on-the-job training or attend relevant courses in higher institutes of learning to acquire database literacy. Database courses in major institutes rely on textbooks, lectures, and off-the-shelf RDBMS to impart relevant knowledge such as how SQL queries are processed.
