Hi, I am Atsushi Keyaki who is a first year doctoral student. I will report about conferences I attended.
A conference of DBS153 was held on November 3rd. I made a presentation in the conference. Because my presentation contained much information, it was hard for non-professional people of my research area, i.e., XML element retrieval to understand my presentation. From now on, I will try to have audiences understand a motivation of my research goal.
Anyway, fortunately, I got some good comments and suggestions. So, I want to refine my research to consider them.
WebDB Forum 2011
A conference of Web DB Forum 2011 was held on November 4th-5th. As you can see from the conference name, the main target of topics is Web search. The conference invited a lot of companies and asked them to talk about managing big data and support for disasters.
I really enjoyed the conference to see and discuss with my friend and professors. It encouraged me very much:-)
