Stefan Manegold wins 2020 Sigmod Contributions Award

Stefan Manegold, group leader of Database Architectures at CWI, won the 2020 SIGMOD Contributions Award. The award recognizes his innovative work in the data management community to encourage scientific reproducibility.

Manegold was one of the leading pioneers in encouraging reproducibility in data management. Reproducibility was introduced at the 2008 SIGMOD Conference and since then has influenced how the community approaches experimental evaluation. Manegold shares the award with fellow researchers Philippe Bonnet, Juliana Freire, Ioana Manolescu, Dennis Shasha, and former CWI researcher Stratos Idreos.

Awareness for experimental reproducibility

“I am honoured to be among the recipients of this award”, says Manegold. “All of us have spent lots of time and effort against many odds to create an awareness for experimental reproducibility of data management research results. Also, we made sure that nowadays there is at least some kind of recognition of (and appreciation for) the extra work that data management researchers do to make their results reproducible for others by sharing their code, data, and detailed instructions.”
