ACM SIGMOD/PODS Conference & The Data Economy Workshop

On the 18th of June 2023, our project partner IMDEA attended the ACM SIGMOD/PODS Conference, and specifically, the Data Economy (DEC) Workshop, held in the Seattle metropolitan area, Washington, USA. 

The annual ACM SIGMOD/PODS Conference is a leading international forum for database researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore cutting-edge ideas and results, and to exchange techniques, tools, and experiences. The conference included a fascinating technical program with research and industrial talks, tutorials, demos, and focused workshops. It also hosted a poster session to learn about innovative technology, an industrial exhibition to meet companies and publishers, and a careers-in-industry panel with representatives from leading companies.

The Data Economy (DEC) Workshop aimed at bringing together researchers and practitioners, to clarify impactful research problems, describe solutions and ideas to the arising data management issues (and beyond) and novel data applications, and share findings and new ideas on real-world data markets. The workshop program included 7 paper presentations, 2 keynotes, and a panel. 

IMDEA, at the workshop, had 40 attendees, and a great keynote speech from Jian Pei of the Duke University and also from Julien Adelberge of IDSA who exposed a mostly US-based audience to IDSA, Data Spaces, Gaia-X and many other activities such as EU research projects and regulation initiatives that take place in Europe. During IMDEA’s opening remarks and panel discussions at the workshop, the DataBri-X project was mentioned, and the project’s flyers were distributed to the interested audience. In addition to the above-mentioned, IMDEA presented two paper sessions: 

  • Image Watermarking for Machine Learning Datasets

  • Graph Database Watermarking Using Pseudo-Nodes

The proceedings of the workshop are available from the ACM Digital Library, as well as published in the DataBri-X website.
