Stefano Ceri will give a keynote talk at the DBDBD on 2 December 2011. Ceri is professor of Database Systems at Politecnico di Milano, Italy. He co-authored over 250 articles in International Journals and Conference Proceedings, and is co-author or editor of many international books, including best-selling classics like “Conceptual database design: an Entity-relationship approach” with Carlo Batini and Shamkant Navathe. His research interests cover many aspects of database management systems, including distributed databases, deductive and active databases, streaming data, object orientation, XML query languages, as well as design methods for data-intensive web sites.
Professor Ceri was awarded the prestigious IDEAS Advanced Grant, funded by the European Research Council (ERC), on Search Computing (search-computing.it): Search computing enables answering questions via a constellation of dynamically selected, cooperating, search services. Search computing should enable answering complex queries like: “Who are the strongest European competitors on software ideas?”, “Who is the best doctor to cure insomnia in a nearby hospital?”, or very important for poor PhD students, “Where can I attend an interesting conference in my field closest to a sunny beach?”
