VLDB 2015 and Database Research at Google

This week, Kohala, Hawaii hosts the 41st International Conference of Very Large Databases (VLDB 2015), a premier annual international forum for data management and database researchers, vendors, practitioners, application developers and users. As a leader in Database research, Google will have a strong presence at VLDB 2015 with many Googlers publishing work, organizing workshops and presenting demos.

The research Google is presenting at VLDB involves the work of Structured Data teams who are building intelligent and efficient systems to discover, annotate and explore structured data from the Web, surfacing them creatively through Google products (such as structured snippets and table search), as well as engineering efforts that create scalable, reliable, fast and general-purpose infrastructure for large-scale data processing (such as F1, Mesa, and Google Cloud's BigQuery).

If you are attending VLDB 2015, we hope you’ll stop by our booth and chat with our researchers about the projects and opportunities at Google that go into solving interesting problems for billions of people. You can also learn more about our research being presented at VLDB 2015 in the list below (Googlers highlighted in blue).

Google is a Gold Sponsor of VLDB 2015.
