Influential Paper Award to Sanjay Agrawal, Surajit Chaudhuri, and Gautam Das for "DBXplorer: A System for Keyword-Based Search over Relational Databases." Appearing in ICDE 2002. Also to Gaurav Bhalotia, Arvind Hulgeri, Charuta Nakhe, Soumen Chakrabarti, and S. Sudarshan for "Keyword Searching and Browsing in Databases using BANKS," also appearing in ICDE 2002. Together, these two papers from ICDE 2002 laid the foundations for keyword search over relational databases, paving the way for a significant body of follow-on work in the area of Information Retrieval and Databases. The solutions presented in these papers are elegant and highly effective. In addition there is the Best Paper Award Winner: "Temporal Analytics on Big Data for Web Advertising" by Badrish Chandramouli (Microsoft Research) Jonathan Goldstein (Microsoft Corporation) Songyun Duan (IBM T. J. Watson Research Center). The paper beautifully combines the Map-Reduce framework and ideas from data-stream management systems for scalable temporal analytics on big data for effective behavioral targeting on the web. RUNNER-UP: "Recomputing Materialized Instances after Changes to Mappings and Data" by Todd J. Green (University of California, Davis) Zachary G. Ives (University of Pennsylvania). The paper elegantly applies novel ideas for optimizing queries with materialized views to the practical problem of incrementally adapting declarative schema mappings in collaborative data sharing systems.
