ACM SIGMOD 2010 Programming Contest

As you know, SIGMOD is ACM’s Special Interest Group on Management of Data. SIGMOD holds the annual conference that is regarded as one of the best conference in computer science. Besides, SIGMOD organizes a programming contest in parallel with the ACM SIGMOD conference. Below description is the call for the programming contest of this year. The programming contest’s subject of this year seems very interesting! The task is to implement a simple distributed query executor built on top of last year’s main-memory index. The environment on which contestants will test their implementation may be provided by Amazon. If you are interested in this programming contest, try that. You can get further information from here (http://dbweb.enst.fr/events/sigmod10contest).

A programming contest is organized in parallel with the ACM SIGMOD 2010 conference, following the success of the first annual SIGMOD programming contest organized last year. Student teams from degree-granting institutions are invited to compete to develop a distributed query engine over relational data. Submissions will be judged on the overall performance of the system on a variety of workloads. A shortlist of finalists will be invited to present their implementation at the SIGMOD conference in June 2010 in Indianapolis, USA. The winning team, to be selected during the conference, will be awarded a prize of 5,000 USD and will be invited to a one-week research visit in Paris. The winning system, released in open source, will form a building block of a complete distributed database system which will be built over the years, throughout the programming contests.
