UM to host ICDE for the first time next Monday
UM will host the ICDE, one of the world's top conferences in data engineering, for the first time next Monday.

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.



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。
