New England Database Day
January 30, 2009
Welcome to the home page for the second New England Database Day
day (NEDBDay09). This will be an all day conference-style event where participants from
the research community in the New England area can come together to
present ideas and discuss their research. Registration for the event
is free, and anyone is welcome to attend. Lunch and drinks/appetizers will be
provided thanks to the generosity of our sponsors.
The event will include several keynote talks; one of them will be from
Michael Franklin, Professor at UC Berkeley and co-founder of TruViso, Inc.
The other will be from Alon Halevy, from Google.
Special thanks to our sponsors.

NEDBDay09 will be held on the MIT campus, in room 32-123 of the
Stata Center, located at 32 Vassar St. on the corner of Main St. and
Vassar St. in Cambridge. A campus map is available here. The room
is on the first floor.
The event will be held on Friday, January 30th, 2009, from 9 am to
6:00 pm, including appetizers and drinks at a poster session from 4-6.
The technical program is available.
Directions to the poster session are here.
We would be happy to recommend restaurants at any price
level to attendees who are interested in eating in Cambridge or Boston
after the event.
Although the event is free, we ask that you register so that we can
plan space and estimate food costs.
We have set up a registration site
Parking and Transportation
We cannot provide on-campus parking for all attendees. If you are coming
from the North or West, you may find it most convenient to drive to Alewife
Station and take the Red Line to Kendall Square (MIT is about 2 blocks from
the Kendall Square Station, which is on Main St.) If you are coming
from the South, you can park at Braintree or Quincy Station and take the Red
Line as well. See this Red Line Map. Parking at these stations is $5.00.
If you are driving to MIT, there are several nearby pay parking lots. See
MIT's page listing public parking facilities. The Cambridge Center lots are all a short walk to the Stata Center. Most lots charge $20.00 for one day parking.
