?**************************** Prof. Aditya Ghose has been invited to deliver a 2-week course on "Computational Service Science" as part of the Prime Minister of India's key educational project, GIAN, under which under which foreign scholars teach at India's leading technology institutes to build knowledge and transform higher education across the country.
DSL authors Renuka Sindhgatta (also of IBM Research India), Prof. Aditya Ghose and Dr. Hoa Dam will report on a novel framework that uses data analytics for optimal business process provisioning at the 2016 International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAISE), the premier conference in this area (acceptance rate: 16.5%)
Prof. Aditya Ghose, Prof. Andrew Miller and Dr. David Stirling were among the authors of a submission (with Prof. David Thwaites of the University of Sydney as lead author) entitled "Mining routine radiation oncology clinical datasets within a distributed rapid learning framework: the potential for supporting optimised clinical decisions" that won the Best Abstract Award at the Cancer Institute of NSW Innovations in Cancer Treatment and Care Conference 2014.
Prof. John Mylopoulos, eminent software engineering and conceptual modelling researcher, is currently visiting the Decision Systems Lab for a period of 3 weeks. His visit was preceded by a visit by Prof. Akhil Kumar from Penn State University in early January.

TITLE: Optimisation of Query Processing with Multilevel Storage (Joint work with Dr. Janusz R. Getta, DSL) (Paper already presented at the CIIDS-2016 conference)
Abstract: The typical algorithms for optimization of query processing in database systems do not take under the consideration the availability of different types and sizes of persistent and transient storage resource that can be used to speed up the internal query processing. It is well known that appropriate allocation of storage resources for the internal query processing may significantly improve performance. This paper describes the new algorithms for automatic management of multilevel transient and persistent storage resources in order to optimize the performance of query processing in a database system. The algorithms presented in the paper process the concurrently submitted queries and discover the common query processing plans. The algorithms estimate the query processing costs and choose the best allocation of multilevel storage resources to optimise the overall internal query processing costs. The paper presents the outcomes of experiments that confirm the improvements in performance through appropriate allocation of multilevel storage for the internal query processing.
