Distributed and real-time database systems2007HT
Lectures: 12 hours, Seminars: 12 hours, Project presentations 3-9 hours
(Depending on number of students)
The course is suitable for IT and CUGS PhD students interested in architecture and techniques of distributed and real-time database systems, as well as computer science MS students and industrial participants.
The course was last given
The course covers theory and issues in designing distributed and real-time database systems from a number of different perspectives and also discusses new emerging application areas and related system architectures.
A strong background in software development and computer science is necessary. This course assumes that students has taken a basic course in database systems and is familiar with concepts such as transactions, ACID properties, structural modeling, normalization, and query languages (i.e., SQL). Further, basic courses in real-time systems, distributed systems and software engineering are strongly recommended.
This course will give students an overview of the challenges and the state of
the art in designing distributed real-time database systems. In particular,
lectures and seminars will cover fundamental theory and recent results for a
number of topics, relevant to distributed and real-time systems development.
The topics include:
QoS management for real-time databases
Real-time stream processing
Real-time transaction processing and reactive mechanisms
Distributed and real-time concurrency control
Transaction scheduling and overload management
Consistency levels, conflict handling and scalability issues
Emerging applications areas of distributed and real-time databases
Apart from reading selected papers and discussing these topics, students will write an essay discussing the potential benefits and challenges of introducing distributed or real-time database systems in a particular application domain (for example, vehicle systems, command and control applications, distributed simulation, mobile platforms or peer-to-peer networking). Students will also participate in a programming assignment that uses a commercial real-time database system.
Lectures + Seminars based on papers and student presentations + programming assignment with demonstration.
