About this Blog

The ACM SIGMOD Blog is the official blog site for ACM SIGMOD. Its purpose is to catch the heartbeat of our community on exciting and controversial topics that are of interest to the community, and facilitate discussions among researchers on such topics!

If you are passionate on a topic and would like to write a few paragraphs staking out your position, please contact Georgia Koutrika. We also invite people to blog on selected topics.

You are welcome to participate in the discussion following the current blog post. When you do so, we encourage you to identify yourself by providing your name, and optionally your institution. In this way, everyone can get acknowledged, and discussions can be open, interesting and constructive.

Living in the era of social networking sites, we also offer the option for you to leave comments by signing up using your Facebook account. In this way, people will be able to see your photo and your name next to your comments! Comments will be moderated to ensure a healthy and fun blogging environment.

The Data Management community is committed to the promotion of diversity and inclusion in all aspects of our professional activities. We celebrate the diversity in our community and welcome everyone regardless of age, gender identity, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, country of origin, religion, sexual orientation, physical ability, education, and work experience. We also welcome people and opinions of all political persuasions, as long as they abide by the ACM policy against harassment. Our initiative coordinates D&I efforts across the data management community and includes this year’s D&I chairs of SIGMOD, VLDB, SoCC, and ICDE.
