The goal of the DFG priority program on Scalable Data Management for Future Hardware is based on the observation that data management systems will undergo a radical shift in the next few years with the current advances in the hardware
as well as the operating system and thereby open great opportunities for rethinking current system architectures. Inline with this overall goal, the aim of this summer school is to educate students on how such system architectures
can be designed by looking at the recent establishments in the area of modern storage, compute, and networks.
The summer school will start with an introduction to modern storage with topics related to recent practices of persistent memory and SSD codesign in databases as well as next-generation storage for the cloud. The next day will cover talks on current usage of modern hardware such as FPGAs in data management systems with a glimpse into the hardware that Intel and AMD provides. Finally, on the last day the summer school will cover topics on modern networks. On the second day, the PhD participants will be given an opportunity to present their own research as a poster and thereafter a possibility for discussion with the in-person audience.
The summer school will take place in-person from 12th to 14th of October consisting of several talks from renowned researchers in this field. The event is planned to be held in-person at Hotel Lufthansa Seeheim that is embedded in the beautiful landscape of Odenwald near to nature.
The summer school will accept around 30 participants within (internal) and outside (external) DFG SPP project. Every participant will be expected to attend the in-person event and thus we encourage an early application.
We encourage applications from PhD students and early career researchers who are working in this field of data management systems on modern hardware and networks or in related fields of the topics of the summer school.
Master students and postdocs are also welcome to register subject to availability.
The summer school is free of charge for attendance for the internal SPP participants and for externals the fee is 100€. Additionally, the selected participants (both internal and external) are expected to pay for their own travel expenses and the room cost for their stay at Hotel Lufthansa Seeheim. Preliminary costs for a single room is 252€ (incl. full board). So the total costs are around 350€ for external participants. Internal participants can apply for reimbursement for the travel and accommodation costs. Due to the limited availability, each PI gets one free registration. Additional registrations are charged similarly as external participant.
Participants can use the following registration link to register for the summer school latest until
August 7th August 10th . External applicants must provide a short motivational abstract about their
research and CV or publication list (optional) for their application. The selection will be made based on the abstracts.
