Managing Databases         

With a strong annual presence, the Database Operations and Development Symposium (DODS) has become the leading academia-industry regional forum for database management systems. The event is organized in the Spring of every year by the Department of Computer Science, and provides a platform for scientists, engineers, and practitioners to present their latest research. The Symposium focuses on results, ideas, and applications in database operations and development that are relevant to the region's industry. The event also provides an opportunity for experts to discuss, explore, and exchange information on state-of-the-art developments in database operations. Topics of interest include database modeling, simulation, design, use, and evaluation.


The 2010 and 2011 symposia included numerous cutting-edge presentations broken up into various sessions focusing on innovations and applications of database operations and development. The areas of emphasis included Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery, Database Concurrency, Transaction Management and Recovery, Database Security, Distributed Databases, and Bioinformatics. Among the key industry participants are IBM and Oracle. The 2012 DODS Symposium will be announced in January, and is expected to attract more than 100 participants.
