New England Database Day this Friday January 30

Dan Weinreb, to whose opinions I usually give great weight, spoke very favorably of last year’s New England Database Day conference.  Well, this year’s is taking place on Friday.  It’s at MIT and it’s free, with easy registration.  A list of papers is here

It’s pretty obvious who’s running the show. Sam Madden’s name is given as a contact; elsewhere it’s referred to as being organized by Madden and Mike Stonebraker.  Of the six identified papers, 2-3 look like the subjects or people could be taken straight from Vertica’s Database Column blog.  But that hardly means the event will be one long Vertica commercial.  For example, the other papers include one from Netezza and one on Flash memory data access methods.

I really doubt I’ll make to Cambridge in time for the 9:00 am opening remarks ;), but I’ll try to swing by later on.
