TCS4F is an initiative by theoretical computer scientists who are concerned about that other major crisis of our time: climate change. We anticipate that the climate crisis will be a defining challenge of the decades to come, that it will require major changes at all levels of society to mitigate the harm that it will cause, and that researchers in theoretical computer science and in database theory, like all other actors, must be part of the solution and not…
A blog on the Theoretical Foundations of Data Management
* PODS Call For Submissions *
The Principles of Database Systems (PODS) symposium series, held in conjunction with the SIGMOD conference series, provides a premier annual forum for the communication of new advances in the theoretical foundations of data management, traditional or non-traditional (see https://databasetheory.org/PODS).

We invite applications for a post-doctoral position at the Data and Knowledge Laboratory of Technion - Israel Institute of Technology (Haifa, Israel). The successful applicant is expected to carry out research within the project "Quantitative Reasoning About Database Queries" lead jointly by Martin Grohe (RWTH Aachen) and Benny Kimelfeld (Technion).
Due to the situation regarding COVID-19, the AMW organization has decided to postpone the event to the second semester of 2020. Yet, it all depends on how the situation evolves. The final decisions will be informed during July 2020.
The Alberto Mendelzon International Workshop on Foundations of Data Management (AMW) brings…
As researchers, our job is to develop new knowledge and share it with the world. Currently, the main way to do this is research articles. Thus, we are all contributing to a vast corpus of scholarly literature, which contains millions of papers across decades of research in all domains of human knowledge.
The point of this article is to argue that this precious resource is not currently used to its full potential. The scientific corpus can only be navigated…
