I just finished putting together the program for New England Database Summit, 2010 (thanks to the PC: Yanlei Diao, Olga Papaemmanouil, and Elke Rundensteiner). The schedule is really packed this year, with three keynotes/invited talks, eight technical session talks, and approximately thirty posters from students and researchers. The featured talks are from Raghu Ramakrishnan (Chief Scientist for Audience & Cloud Computing at Yahoo!), Curt Monash (President, Monash Research), and C. Mohan (IBM Fellow and IBM India Chief Scientist).
Registration for New England Database Summit is free (thanks Netezza!), but we need to know how much food, coffee, appetizers, and drinks to order (breakfast and lunch is included in the free admission, and there will be free beer and wine during the poster session), so registration will be closed after 5PM on Friday, January 22nd.
In the past we've had 200+ attendees, so it's a great opportunity to come network with researchers, academics, and database professionals from all over New England.
A summary of the current program is listed below. However, the NEDBSummit Website has more details (including talk abstracts).
