Database Systems Research Group — U Tübingen
Welcome to the web presence of the Database Research Group at U Tübingen.
Our group pursues a variety of "all-time classic" database research questions –
prime examples include query language design, translation, and optimization –
but with a few twists:
- We are particularly interested in using different flavors of
relational database technology to support non-relational data models
and languages. This has led to efficient and scalable XML and XQuery
processors, for example.
- Whenever insightful and promising, we apply techniques that have their roots
in the programming languages community to the database research
domain. This paves the way for expressive and elegant language-integrated
queries, new query compilation techniques, declarative query debuggers, or
data provenance analyzers.
We love to teach the basics as well as the intricacies of database systems.
Courses on query and programming language technology are found in our repertoire
