Welcome to the (skeleton of the) WikiEdit
This wiki is about organizing thoughts, scribbles, ideas and notes (and references and links) into a knowledge base regarding DBMS architectures and some specific research directions in this field.
It is currently just a skeleton, with few pages which are mostly stubbed. It will probably be developed further worked on by Eyal Rozenberg , from the CWI Database Architectures research group. But - it will hopefully become a collective resource at some point.
What kinds of things do we write about here?Edit
|Concepts||Noteworthy abstract concepts in the world of DBMSes and in their architecture specifically.|
|Organizations||Institutes, companies, research groups, consortia and any other organization of people involved in DBMS research|
|Conferences||Conferences in which works related to DBMS architectures have been (and will be) presented, and their specific features, tastes, communities of publishers and attendees etc.|
|Research Initiatives||Formally or informally arranged larger-scale initiatives and projects involving DBMS research (TODO: Give an example here).|
|Publications||Journals publishing research work regarding DBMSes, especially in the architectural aspect.|
|Benchmarks||Official (and unofficial) benchmark schemes for assessing DBMS performance.|
|Languages||Languages used to "talk" to DBMSes, to design databases, and to pass structured information within a DBMS.|
|History||Historical events which had significant influence on DBMS architecture, or on the CWI DB architectures group and its related people and organizations.|
|DBMSes||Description of specific Database management systems or DBMS families, focusing on their architecture.|
|DBMS Components||Significant components of specific DBMSes, with more detailed description of their design and implementation|
|Tools||Software tools useful for work on DBMSes: In their design, implementation, maintenance, monitoring and so on.|
|Research Texts||Academic articles, books in print, technical reports on research-and-development website posts.|
|Systems||Individual computers and clusters which are usable by the CWI DA group or the public, or which run architecturally-interesting DBMS installations. (Yes, this includes SciLens :-) ...)|
... as well as CWI-DA-group-specific customs, practices and procedures.
What kind of content items are available on this wiki? Edit
WRITEME: Add more categories Notes-on-issues, Notes-on-papers, lists-of-stuff, minutes of meetings, to-do-lists, descriptions-of-concepts, stories, historic/biographical information, maybe pages for dynamic coordination of activities like the SciLens cluster
