CIDR 2021: Final call for participation
The annual Conference on Innovative Data Systems Research (CIDR) is a systems-oriented conference, complementary in its mission to the mainstream database conferences like SIGMOD and VLDB, emphasizing the systems architecture perspective. CIDR gathers researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry to discuss the latest innovative and visionary ideas in the field, in a focused single-track conference, normally alternating between California and Amsterdam.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, CIDR2021 will be held online from Monday January 11 until Friday January 15, via Zoom, in daily 3-hour sessions (07:00-10:00 PST, i.e. California Time).
CIDR2021 has accepted 30 research/demo papers which will be presented in 10-minute talks (plus 5 minutes for Q&A). There will also be a gong-show with 11 short (4-minute) talks.
As highlights, CIDR2021 is proud to announce two keynote talks:
- “The Snowflake Data Cloud” Benoit Dageville (Snowflake) on Tuesday
- “Let the Data Flow!” Kunle Olukotun (Stanford University & SambaNova) on Thursday
There will also be a panel to close the conference on Friday titled “ML in Databases”, chaired by Jignesh Patel (University of Wisconsin) with panelists:
- Tim Kraska (MIT)
- Umar Farooq Minhas (Microsoft Research)
- Thomas Neumann (Technische Universität München)
- Olga Papaemmanouil (Brandeis University)
- Chris Ré (Stanford University)
- Michael Stonebraker (MIT)
Registration – via the website – is free, thanks to the CIDR sponsors (Amazon, Databricks, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Oracle, Snowflake and SAP).
There is a cap on the registrations at 500, and the final deadline to register is Thursday 7th January.
Registered participants will receive connection information by email on Friday 8th January.

The Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) and Data Science Center (DSC) of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) are joining forces in a new joint fellowship for (teams of) researchers interested in exploring the intersection of data science and other disciplines. The first fellow of the new program, Dr. Davide Ceolin, will start his fellowship at the IAS on June 17. Ceolin is currently affiliated with CWI.
Nanda Piersma, lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences (AUAS), has been appointed as a crown member of the Social and Economic Counsil (SER). This is the first time that a lecturer has been appointed as member of the SER. Nanda Piersma was approached because of her expertise in the field of digitisation.
