During the first week of September 2019 SPP members Timo Bingmann (KIT), Ulrich Meyer (Goethe University), and Matthias Mnich (Bonn University) together with Tim Conrad (FU Berlin) co-organised a GI-Dagstuhl seminar with close to thirty participants.
The workshop targeted algorithms and systems for big data, with the objective to discuss and identify current research challenges and prospective solutions in the areas of big data management, algorithmic research, machine learning, distributed systems, and applications. More pieces of information can be found here.


The second edition of the textbook Algorithms and Data Structures -- The Basic Toolbox by Peter Sanders, Kurt Mehlhorn, Martin Dietzfelbinger and Roman Dementiev has been published. The book includes parallel techniques in every chapter as parallel processing can be found in every real world computer. Therefore the book title changed to Sequential and Parallel Algorithms and Data Structures -- The Basic Toolbox.

The target group includes students and professionals who are proficient in programming and basic mathematical language. The intention is to learn about the basic algorithmic toolbox. This includes structures that enable efficient organization and retrieval of data, algorithms for problems on graphs and generic techniques for modeling.

The Springer AI Journal "KI - Künstliche Intelligenz" has just published a special issue on Algorithmic Challenges and Opportunities of Big Data. Besides a number of research articles it includes a survey on our SPP. Several PIs and PhD students of our priority program have been involved in the production of this special issue. Here is the link to the online version on the publishers page: https://link.springer.com/journal/13218/32/1/page/1

Dorothea Wagner received the Konrad Zuse medal of the Gesellschaft für Informatik for being an outstanding scientist. She is the first woman to receive Germany's highest computer science award. Her contributions can be found in numerous applications today and include, for example, automated route planning or the optimization of energy systems. The award also recognizes her honorary commitment to computer science and science in general.

The PhD Meeting 2018 will take place in Hamburg.
