[hpc-announce] The 13th International Workshop on Self-Managing Database Systems (SMDB 2022)

Demetris Trihinas trihinas.d at unic.ac.cy
Sat Jan 8 00:54:52 CST 2022

Co-located with ICDE 2022 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The aim of the SMDB workshop is to provide a forum for researchers from both industry and
academia to present and discuss ideas related to self-management and self-organization in
data management systems ranging from classical databases to data stream engines to large-scale
cloud environments that utilize advanced AI, machine learning, and data mining and analysis.
