Welcome to the database systems group of the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Wisconsin—Madison. We have been conducting database related research for almost 30 years, and we are considered one of the best database groups in the country.

Our research topics include:

  • cloud data processing
  • data analytics
  • hardware-software interactions for data processing
  • energy-efficient data processing
  • parallel database systems
  • scientific databases
  • visualization of large datasets
  • web database systems and information integration
  • database theory

You may be interested in our current research projects, the people involved in our group, or the database-related courses offered at UW.

Additionally, we host a weekly database seminar during the fall and spring semesters, and an annual affiliates meeting in Fall. Hope you enjoy the photos below from our recent Affiliates meeting.
