Venue: KReSIT Auditorium
The first of this pair of talks was initially given by Dr Mohan as a keynote addres in VLDB 1999 where he received the 10 year best paper award for his work on the ARIES family of recovery/concurrency control methods. This talk reviews the history of ARIES as well as future directions. The second talk covers some recent results on concurrency control and recovery, presented by Mohan in VLDB 2002.
Speaker Profile:
Dr. C. Mohan, from IBM Almaden, is probably the best known researcher in the area of database recovery and concurrency control. For those of you who are not already familiar with his background a (somewhat) brief bio is below. Dr. C. Mohan joined IBM Almaden Research Center in 1981. He is the primary inventor of the ARIES family of recovery and concurrency control methods, and the industry-standard Presumed Abort commit protocol. He was named an IBM Fellow in 1997 for being recognized worldwide as a leading innovator in transaction management. He received the 1996 ACM SIGMOD Innovations Award in recognition of his innovative contributions to the development and use of database systems. In late 2002, he was named an ACM Fellow and an IEEE Fellow. At the 1999 International Conference on Very Large Data Bases, he was honored with the 10 Year Best Paper Award for the widespread commercial and research impact of his ARIES work. From IBM, he has received 1 Corporate and 8 Outstanding Innovation/TechnicalAchievement Awards. He is an inventor on 33 patents. Mohan works very closely with numerous IBM product groups and his research results are implemented in numerous IBM and non-IBM prototypes and products like DB2, MQSeries, Lotus Domino/Notes, Microsoft SQLServer and S/390 Parallel Sysplex. He has been an editor of VLDB Journal, and Distributed and Parallel Databases. Currently, he is a member of IBM's Software Group and Data Management Architecture Boards, and is working on database caching and next generation messaging in the context of DB2 and WebSphere. Mohan received his PhD in computer science from the University of Texas at Austin in 1981.
