Todd L. Veldhuizen has been selected to win the ICDT 2024 Test-of-Time Award for the article "Leapfrog Triejoin: A Simple, Worst-Case Optimal Join Algorithm", published in the ICDT 2014 conference proceedings.

The 2024 Test-of-Time Award Committee consisted of Nofar Carmeli, Reinhard Pichler, and Nicole Schweikardt (chair). The committee's goal was to recognize a paper selected from the proceedings of the ICDT 2014 conference that has had the highest impact in terms of research, methodology, conceptual contribution, or transfer to practice over the past decade. After careful consideration and soliciting external assessments, we came to the conclusion that Todd L. Veldhuizen's ICDT 2014 paper "Leapfrog Triejoin: A Simple, Worst-Case Optimal Join Algorithm" has greatly influenced theoretical as well as practical database reasearch and is, in fact, one of the great gems of ICDT. It clearly deserves to receive the ICDT 2024 Test-of-Time Award. Congratulations!

The award will be presented during the EDBT/ICDT 2024 Joint Conference, March 25-28, 2024 in Paestum, Italy. Url: https://dastlab.github.io/edbticdt2024/
