This week there will be quite a few links to white-papers from this years The Conference on Innovative Data Systems Research (CIDR). It was started in 2002 by very illustrious people from the database industry: Michael Stonebraker, Jim Gray, and David DeWitt! The conference gives the database community a venue to present groundbreaking and innovative data systems architectures. This year it was held January 8 - 11, and you can find all the presentations here.

As mentioned before, the above papers were the ones of interest that I had a chance to at least skim through. There are a wealth more of papers at the site, so go an have a look.

So if you don't have time to go through all the papers yourself, browse to the morning paper, and get the papers served to you!
