Database Systems Research Group — U Tübingen
Welcome to the web presence of the Database Research Group at U Tübingen.
Our group pursues a variety of "all-time classic" database research questions –
prime examples include query language design, translation, and optimization –
but with a few twists:
- We are particularly interested in the design, compilation, and
optimization of expressive database languages that support rich
data models and embed seamlessly into host programming languages.
This has led to a database-supported variant of Haskell (Ferry,
well as efficient and scalable XQuery processors
- Whenever insightful and promising, we apply techniques that have their roots
in the programming languages community to the database research
domain. This paves the way for expressive and elegant language-integrated
queries, new query compilation techniques,
declarative query debuggers, or
analyzers that embrace Turing-complete SQL queries.
We love to teach the basics as well as the intricacies of database systems.
Courses on query and programming language technology are found in our repertoire
