EECS 584: Advanced Database Systems

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, database resource management, parallel and distributed database systems, extensible database systems, data analysis on large databases, and application of DBMS techniques in XML-based applications, mobile applications and bioinformatics. 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 (~10 sentences total) 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. The reviews will be graded on a scale of 0-4, with 4 being the highest grade. http://www.eecs.umich.edu/courses/eecs584/ [Full Story]
