Jo Atlee, Professor and Director of Women in Computer Science
David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science

This talk looks at some of the issues of equity, diversity, and inclusiveness that women in computing face, in K-12, in university, and as junior programmers in the workforce. I’ll discuss some of the best practices for addressing these issues, what WiCS is doing to address these issues, and the considerable amount of work that is left to do.

Technical University of Munich

Join ordering is one of the core problems of query optimization, as differences in join order can affect the execution time of queries by orders of magnitudes. Unfortunately, the problem is NP hard in general, and real-world queries can join hundreds of relations, which makes exact solutions prohibitive expensive.

Distributed storage systems form the core of modern cloud services. Like many systems software, these systems are built using layering: system designers use distributed protocols (e.g., Paxos, 2PC) and layer them upon local storage engines (e.g., RocksDB, SQLite). Such layering abstracts details about the storage stack to the layers above, easing development.

Solving math problems can be challenging, so challenging that one might wish to seek insights from the Internet and search for answers from Community Question Answering sites such as Math StackExchange. However, searching for relevant answers for a math problem is itself not trivial.
