|Term: Fall 2007|
Course No.: EECS 584
Credit Hours: 4
Instructor: Jignesh Patel
Prerequisites: EECS 484 or permission of instructor
EECS 584 will cover a number of advanced topics in development of database management systems (DBMS) and the application of DBMSs in modern applications.
Topics to be discussed include advanced concurrency control and recovery techniques, query processing and optimization strategies for relational database systems, advanced access methods, parallel and distributed database systems, extensible database systems, data analysis on large databases.
The course material will be drawn from a number of papers in the database literature. We will cover 2-3 papers per week, and all students attending the class are expected to read the papers before coming to the lecture. Before each class you will be required to hand in a brief summary (~350 words) of the paper that will be discussed in the class. The summary should not a facsimile of the abstract of the paper, but should be your assessment of the key contributions and limitations of the paper. For the summaries, do not provide a section by section play of what is covered in the paper. Simply summarize the key points that stood out when you read the paper. Long summaries will simply be returned without being graded. The reviews will be graded on a scale of 0-4, with 4 being the highest grade. 5% of the course grade is allocated for paper summaries.
