on Machine Learning Testing and Productivity
With the ever increasing amount of data stored and processed, there is an ongoing need of testing database management systems but also data-intensive systems in general. Specifically, emerging new technologies such as Non-Volatile Memory impose new challenges (e.g., avoiding persistent memory leaks and partial writes), and novel system designs including FPGAs, GPUs, and RDMA call for additional attention and sophistication.
Reviving the previous success of the six previous workshops, the goal of DBTest 2017 is to bring researchers and practitioners from academia and industry together to discuss key problems and ideas related to testing database systems and applications. The long-term objective is to reduce the cost and time required to test and tune data management and processing products so that users and vendors can spend more time and energy on actual innovations.
The workshop focusses on the following topics:
Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered for publication in any other forum.
Papers must follow the most recent ACM Proceedings Format.
Papers submitted can be between four and six pages in length, including references and appendix.
Submissions will be handled through Easy Chair
Timeline will be:
