Database Systems

Overview

The research interests of the Database Systems Group include data-centric applications in database and information systems with a particular focus on similarity search queries over massive data collections, for example, approximate matching of trees and graphs, efficient indexes for distance computations, and top-k queries.  An other focus are load balancing algorithms for distributed frameworks like MapReduce. The research results are new algorithms with performance guarantees, which are implemented and evaluated on the motivating application.
