Advanced Data Management Systems (ADMS)

This is an advanced course about the design of modern data management systems which has a heavy emphasis on system design and internals. Sample topics include modern hardware for data management, main memory optimisations, parallel and approximate query processing, etc.

The course expects the reading of research papers (SIGMOD, VLDB, etc.) for each class. Programming projects will implement concepts discussed in selected papers. The final grade will be based on the results of the programming projects as well as written quizzes during the course of the lecture.
