All are invited to attend this event. Please RSVP according to the instructions below.

Fifth Midwest Database Research Symposium
Saturday, October 4, 2008
University of Illinois at Chicago

Symposium Goals

Within just a few hours driving distance, the midwest has an incredible collection of database researchers and students. The goal of the Midwest Database Research Symposium is to strengthen the ties between these individuals and encourage future discussions, interactions and collaborations, through a day of interaction and networking once a year.

To foster on-to-one interaction, this year's Symposium will focus on poster sessions and demos. We will have three poster sessions, with sufficient room for every attendee to have a poster. There will also be room for attendees to present demos along with their posters.
