Introduction to XLDB Asia 2012

The Extremely Large Databases (XLDB) series of conferences/workshops
(xldb.org) have been held successfully in recent years. The first XLDB
satellite conference at Asia (XLDB Asia) will be held at Beijing,
China on June 22-23, 2012.

Different from traditional technique conferences, XLDB conference is
based on invited premium talks by pioneers and leaders in the
field. This year we have brought together world class speakers, who
are owners of real extremely large data from industries and scientific
research, practitioners who are handling the real data, or DBMS
researchers who are researching new solutions. Speakers include
Dr. Alexander Szalay, a pioneer in astronomic data management, who
builds one of the largest scientific databases in the world together
with Jim Gray from Microsoft; Dr. Joel Saltz, a pioneer in biomedical
informatics, founder of the virtual microscopy technology, who works
extensively on high performance data analysis and queries of
biomedical data; Dr Kian-Tat Lim from SLAC National Accelerator
Laboratory, Stanford University, who works on designing and building
the petabyte-scale data management systems for the Large Synoptic
Survey Telescope, one of the coming largest scientific databases in
the next decade; Dr. Milind Bhandarka, the Chief Architect of
Greenplum Labs in EMC, who will present the proposed Big Data
Benchmarking framework; Dr. Laura Hass, an IBM Fellow, who invented
many database products and technologies at IBM and now directs IBM
massive data product research; Dr. Hairong Kuang, who leads the
development of Hadoop Distributed File System at Facebook, and a long
time contributor and committer to the Apache Hadoop project;
Dr. Martin Kersten, one of the founders of MonetDB, and a pioneer of
column store and array database. Other example industry speakers
include Google, eBay, TaoBao, Rakuten; Example academic research
speakers include Dr. Xiaodong Zhang from Ohio State University,
Dr. Haixun Wang from Microsoft Research Asia, and others. Besides
invited talks, the conference also accepted a set of high quality
lightning talks and poster presentations about XLDB related research
and systems.
