It’s a pleasure to share the accomplishment of two members of Penn database group at PODS 2017 conference here in Chicago. Prof. Susan Davidson gave a wonderful keynote talk about our work on data citation and provenance. Prof. Val Tennan has received the ToT (test of time) award for his work on semirings provenance “The Semiring Framework for Database Provenance“. Prof. Val gave a great talk about the influence of semiring provenance work on various modern data problems.
Congratulations Sue and Val!
