8th International Workshop on Testing Database Systems 2020

June 19

DataBench will be at the 8th International Workshop on Testing Database Systems 2020 where Dr. Todor Ivanov (Goethe University Frankfurt) will present the paper CoreBigBench: Benchmarking Big Data Core Operations

With the ever increasing amount of data stored and processed, there is an ongoing need of testing database management systems but also data-intensive systems in general. Specifically, emerging new technologies such as Non-Volatile Memory impose new challenges (e.g., avoiding persistent memory leaks and partial writes), and novel system designs including FPGAs, GPUs, and RDMA call for additional attention and sophistication.

Reviving the previous success of the seven previous workshops, the goal of DBTest 2020 is to bring researchers and practitioners from academia and industry together to discuss key problems and ideas related to testing database systems and applications. The long-term objective is to reduce the cost and time required to test and tune data management and processing products so that users and vendors can spend more time and energy on actual innovations.

Topics Of Interest

  • Testing of database systems, storage services, and database applications
  • Testing of database systems using novel hardware and software technology (non-volatile memory, hardware transactional memory, …)
