SIGMOD 2009 New Researcher Symposium

The goal of this year's SIGMOD New Researchers Symposium, which I co-chaired with Nesime Tatbul from ETH Zurich, was to give graduate students and junior researchers advice on various challenges involved in human factors, such as successfully making the move from graduate student to being part of, and productive in, a team of researchers in an industry lab or to becoming junior faculty and having to build up a research group. The two panels, consisting of well-known members of the data management community, also covered issues such as attracting and mentoring graduate students or junior researchers and providing good leadership of a research group. The slides used by the panelists are now available here. (Note: some panelists did not use slides.)
