  • Lorenz Fischer published his paper on automated configuration of distributed stream processing systems at Cluster 2015

    The paper “Machines Tuning Machines: Configuring Distributed Stream Processors with Bayesian Optimization” by Lorenz Fischer, Shen Gao, and Abraham Bernstein was accepted at the IEEE Cluster 2015 conference. The paper presents an approach based on bayesian optimization that automatically tunes the myriad of parameters that a distributed stream processing system exposes. The paper will soon [...]More...
  • Cosmin Basca successfully defends his thesis

    On June 13 Cosmin Basca successfully defended his thesis “Federated SPARQL Query Processing. Reconciling Diversity, Flexibility and Performance on the Web of Data”. In his thesis Cosmin explores new, highly-efficient approaches for federated SPARQL querying. In particular Cosmin presents the Avalanche federated query processor. A Clearly relaxed Cosmin after the defense…More...
  • TripleRush paper Successfully presented at WWW

    Freshly minted PhD Philip Stutz and DDIS student Bibek Paudel successfully presented TripleRush — a paper co-authored with Ela Verman and Abraham Bernstein — at the World Wide Web Conference in Florence. TripleRush is a highly parallelized and distributed in-memory graph database (or triple store) that performs better than its competitors. It also has the special feature of [...]More...
  • DDIS is also a Cake — Ich bin auch eine Torte

    Since last week-end DDIS is also a cake. In our social get together a home-made cake with the DDIS logo was presented and appreciated for both its culinary and artistic value… Unfortunately, the cake did not survive the day as many hungry DDIS-members seemed to appreciate it just a little bit too much.More...
  • Philip Stutz passes his PhD defense
