报告题目：Pervasive Query Processing
Assistant Professor, HKUST
Ph.D,University of Wisconsin-Madison
Database systems have successfully served various applications on a wide range of computers for the past 30 years, storing data mainly on disks, answering queries mostly in SQL (Structured Query Language), and managing large numbers of concurrent transactions. Nevertheless, the rapid advances in hardware architectures as well as software applications constantly drive the innovations in database technologies.
In this talk, I will give an overview of my research on pervasive query processing, which aims at enabling queries to be processed efficiently anywhere. As examples, I will present our work on enabling pervasive computing applications through a query processing approach, designing scheduling schemes to support in-network sensor query processing, and exploring in-memory query processing on graphics processors.
Qiong Luo is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, HKUST. Her research interests are in database systems, with emphasis on query processing techniques for emerging architectures, pervasive computing and sensor networks. Qiong received her PhD degree in Computer Sciences from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2002, and received her B.S. and M.S. in Computer Sciences from Beijing (Peking) University, China in 1992 and 1997 respectively.
