This June we were excited to host SIGMOD 2022, the top database conference, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia! This was the first in-person/hybrid database conference in North America since the pandemic began. It was exciting to see friends old and new.
Several Penn Database Group alumni were able to join for a photo! (Left to right: Sudeepa Roy, Duke; Zack Ives, Penn; Allen Yan, Google; Zhuowei Bao, Meta.) Additionally, alumnus Leonid Libkin served as the PODS General Chair and alumnus Dan Suciu won the SIGMOD Edgar F. Codd Award and gave a great presentation.
