The Database Reading Group is a Datalab-sponsored entity that exists to discuss papers
related (broadly speaking) to database technology. We meet on a
weekly basis, Friday mornings from 10:00 to 11:30 AM. The standard meeting
place is room
135-02 130 in PSU's Fourth Avenue Building.
The group welcomes anyone, inside or outside of PSU, with an interest in
the subject matter. Note that this is a "read-first" reading group
(not all are). It is hoped that participants will read the scheduled
paper before we meet to discuss it. Designated group members will
lead the discussion each week.
DIRECTIONS: From the building's main entrance on Fourth Ave., follow
the hallway at the northeast (far left) corner of the large lobby until it
ends with a set of glass doors on your right. Enter these doors into a study area.
A neon sign announcing the Department of Computer Science will be in front
Room 135 is through the glass door on your left, next to the
whiteboard. Room 135-02 is the door on the right inside room 135.
The door to room 135 requires an authorized key card to open, so if we are
not expecting you please try to arrive early. We generally leave the door
to 135-02 open for the first few minutes of the meeting and can hear a
gentle knock on the glass if you are a little late. Room 130 is the
second glass door on the left from the main office door. It does not require
badge access and should be open.
We occasionally need to move to a different location; if we know in advance, it will be listed below.
Reading group announcements are sent to the group mailing list at email@example.com. To (un)subscribe to this list, use the mailman web interface.
Scheduled papers (with Web links where possible) and discussion leaders are listed below. You can also see a list of papers previously discussed.
