澳大下週一首辦全球數據工程大會

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE) 2019 will be held in Macao from Monday 8 April to Thursday 11 April. During the event, experts, scholars, and industry practitioners from around the world will share their latest research findings and technologies in related fields. It will be the first time that the ICDE is held in Macao as well as the first time that UM hosts the event.

One of the world's top conferences in data engineering, the annual event has been held in various cities in the United States, Europe and Asia previously. The host for the conference is selected through a rigorous process with interested institutions submitting bids two years in advance. UM's winning the bid shows international recognition of its research capacity.

Co-organised by UM's Faculty of Science and Technology (FST) and State Key Laboratory of Internet of Things for Smart City, this year’s conference will focus on issues related to the design, creation, management, and evaluation of advanced data-intensive systems and their applications. The conference places a great emphasis on the quality of papers it accepts, with an acceptance rate of about 18 per cent in 2017. This year, a paper from UM, titled ‘KARL: Fast Kernel Aggregation Queries’, which is co-authored by U Leong Hou, an associate professor in the Department of Computer and Information Science, and other scholars, has been accepted for presentation at the conference.

由澳門大學首辦的全球頂尖國際論壇“第35屆電機電子工程師學會(IEEE)國際數據工程大會(ICDE)"將於4月8(周一)至11日(周四)在澳門舉行,來自世界各地的數據工程專家學者、業界人士將分享相關領域的最新研究和技術。是次為澳大首次成功爭取ICDE主辦權,也是ICDE首次移師至澳門舉行。

國際數據工程大會為一年一度的全球頂尖國際論壇,過去曾在美國、歐洲和亞洲多個科技發達的城市舉行。承辦單位需在會議召開前兩年通過激烈的競投取得主辦權。是次澳大成功爭取主辦權,顯示澳大科研實力再次引起國際關注和肯定。澳大科技學院(FST)和智慧城市物聯網國家重點實驗室(IOTSC)將參與籌辦ICDE。

是次會議將聚焦先進數據密集系統和應用,專門探討在設計、構建、管理和評測等方面的科研難題。ICDE甚注重論文的水平和質素,其在2017年論文收錄比率只有約18%;其中,澳大科技學院電腦及資訊科學系副教授余亮豪的論文“KARL:Fast Kernel Aggregation Queries”獲今屆會議收錄。此研究成果為大數據和數據工程作出貢獻。

國際數據工程大會由美國電氣和電子工程師協會於1984年發起,深受世界各地的學者、行業和學生的重視和廣泛參與。
