 (TBA)

2. Keyword Search in Databases: The Power of RDBMS
 Prof. Jeffrey Xu Yu (Chinese University of Hong Kong, China)

 Abstract: Keyword search in relational databases (RDBs) has been
 extensively studied recently. A keyword search (or a keyword query)
 in RDBs is specified by a set of keywords to explore the
 interconnected tuple structures in an RDB that cannot be easily
 identified using SQL on RDBMSs. In brief, it finds how the tuples
 containing the given keywords are connected via sequences of
 connections (foreign key references) among tuples in an RDB. Such
 interconnected tuple structures can be found as connected trees up
 to a certain size, sets of tuples that are reachable from a root
 tuple within a radius, or even multi-center subgraphs within a
 radius. In the literature, there are two main approaches. One is to
 generate a set of relational algebra expressions and evaluate every
 such expression using SQL on an RDBMS directly or in a middleware
 on top of an RDBMS indirectly.  Due to a large number of relational
 algebra expressions needed to process, most of the existing works
 take a middleware approach without fully utilizing RDBMSs. The
 other is to materialize an RDB as a graph and find the
 interconnected tuple structures using graph-based algorithms in
 memory. In this talk we focus on using SQL to compute all the
 interconnected tuple structures for a given keyword query.  We show
 that the current commercial RDBMSs are powerful enough to support
 such keyword queries in RDBs efficiently without any additional new
 indexing to be built and maintained.

3. Spatiotemporal Query Processing: What's New and What's Hot
 Prof. Xiaofang Zhou (University of Queensland, Australia)

 Abstract: Spatiotemporal query processing becomes an active
 research area again in recent years, driven by not only
 intellectually challenging research issues related to performance,
 scalability and uncertainty emerging from many new applications,
 but also the wide spread adoption of positioning devices,
 location-based services and high quality digital maps. In this
 talk, we will present an overview of this research field, followed
 by discussions of our recent work in motion pattern discovery,
 pattern-based movement predication (ICDE'08), convey detection
 (VLDB'08) and path-based nearest neighbor monitoring
 (SIGMOD'09). The aim of this talk is to share with the researchers
 in this area our new results, and also to provide an introduction
 for those who are new to this area.

4. Information Access Evaluation: Some Recent Topics
 Dr. Tetsuya Sakai (Microsoft Research Asia, China)

 Abstract: This talk will briefly touch upon various aspects of
 information access evaluation, including: - New information
 retrieval metrics; - New problems in information access evaluation,
 e.g. incompleteness of relevance assessments; - How to evaluate
 evaluation metrics and test collections; - New information access
 tasks, e.g., IR4QA at NTCIR, exploratory search etc.; - The gap
 between laboratory experiments and the real world; - The gap
 between academia and industry.
