Biography Sudipto Das is a Researcher in the eXtreme Computing Group (XCG) at Microsoft Research (MSR). He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB). His research interests are in the broad area of scalable, distributed, and multi-tenant DBMSs for cloud platforms. Dr. Das is the recipient of the 2013 ACM SIGMOD Jim Gray Doctoral Dissertation Award, UCSB's 2012 Lancaster Dissertation Award, the CIDR 2011 Best Paper Award, MDM 2011 Best Runner-up Paper Award, the 2012 Outstanding Dissertation Award, and the 2011 Outstanding Student Award in Computer Science at UC Santa Barbara, and the TCS-JU Best Student Award for 2006.


Research Interests His broader research interests span the horizon of scalable database management systems. His current research focuses on performance isolation in multi-tenant relational database-as-a-service and in scale-out transaction processing systems leveraging modern hardware paradigms. His thesis research focused on developing scalable, elastic, and autonomic transaction processing systems to support cloud application platforms. He has worked on projects to design large scale analytics platforms for multi-dimensional data to support location based services and to allow deep statistical analysis over large amounts of data. He has also worked on data management systems leveraging modern hardware paradigms such as flash memory or content addressable memory. In the past, he has also worked on data stream processing systems and wireless networks.

Volker also holds a position as an adjunct full professor at the University of Toronto. Earlier in his career, Dr. Markl lead a research group at FORWISS, the Bavarian Research Center for Knowledge-based Systems in Munich, Germany, and was a Research Staff member & Project Leader at the IBM Almaden Research Center in San Jose, California, USA. His research interests include: new hardware architectures for information management, scalable processing and optimization of data programming languages, information processing, and information modeling.


Volker Markl has presented over 200 invited talks in numerous industrial settings and at major conferences and research institutions worldwide. He has authored and published more than 80 research papers at world-class scientific venues. Volker regularly serves as member and chair for program committees of major international database conferences. He also is a member of the Board of Trustees of the VLDB Endowment as well as a member of the computer science evaluation group of the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). Volker has 6 patent awards, and he has submitted over 20 invention disclosures to date. Over the course of his career, he has garnered many prestigious awards, including the European Information Society and Technology Prize, an IBM Outstanding Technological Achievement Award, an IBM Shared University Research Grant , an HP Open Innovation Award , an IBM Faculty Award,  a Trusted-Cloud Award for Information Marketplaces by the German Ministry of Economics and Technology, and the Pat Goldberg Memorial Best Paper Award.


Volker has a strong history in innovation and technology transfer to companies. The transfer of the UB-Tree multidimensional indexing technology to the German SME TransAction Software earned him an award by the European Commission. For creating information marketplaces he earned the Trusted Cloud Award of the German Ministry for Economics and Technology. Volker also has transferred several of his ideas into IBM products during his tenure at IBM. Volker also received the "Innovation Supporter 2012" award by TU Berlin, for supporting several entrepreneurially-minded students teams and helping them to get seed funding. Volker collaborates with several IT companies such as IBM, SAP, Microsoft, Deutsche Telekom, HP as well as many SMEs (Internet Memory Foundation, Parstream, Vico Research, Datamarket, Okkam, Neofonie, etc.) on research and technology transfer in the context of industry-funded projects, as well as projects funded by German and European government programs, as well as the EIT. Volker is currently advising two startup companies in the information management field.


Volker is speaker of the Stratosphere research unit ( ), a collaborative research group of consisting of several professors the areas of distributed systems, scalable data processing, text mining, and information integration, who jointly research and develop a large scale data analytics platform. Stratosphere is available open source and is currently used for teaching and research by several institutions in Germany, Europe and the United States. Volker is also the speaker of the "data analytics and cloud" lab at TU Berlin.
