Welcome to the home page of the Data Management Research Group at Brown University's Department of Computer Science. Our research group is focused on a wide-range of problem domains for database management systems, including analytical (OLAP), transactional (OLTP), and scientific workloads.
The New England database community will hold the sixth annual New England Database Summit on February 1st at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In this all day conference-style event, participants from the research community and industry in the New England area come together to present ideas and discuss their research and experiences. The event will feature keynotes from Phil Bernstein (Distinguished Scientist, Microsoft Research) and Mike Cafarella (Assistant Professor, University of Michigan).
The Brown Data Management Research Group will present three papers:
- MLbase: A Distributed Machine-learning System – Tim Kraska.
- The Traditional Wisdom is All Wrong – Michael Stonebraker, Justin DeBrabant, Andy Pavlo, Stephen Tu, and Stan Zdonik.
- Techniques for Visualizing Massive Data Sets – Justin DeBrabant, Leilani Battle, Ugur Cetintemel, Stan Zdonik, and Michael Stonebraker.

The Data Management Group is proud to announce that Tim Kraska will be joining as a new faculty member at Brown this winter. Tim received his PhD from ETH Zurich in 2010 under Donald Kossmann and is currently a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California–Berkeley’s AMPLab under the prudent, but stern, guidance of the hirsute professor Mike Franklin.
