Research Interests

Bio:
Wim Martens is professor for Data Intensive Algorithms at the University of Bayreuth. He is interested in foundational aspects of data management (with a current focus on graph databases and information extraction), logic, complexity, and formal language theory.
He is/was an invited speaker at STOC 2017 and PODS 2022 and his research received several awards (e.g., two ACM SIGMOD research highlight awards, an ICDT best paper award, and the Belgian dissertation award for computer science). He acted as program committee member in major conferences in databases, the Web, theoretical computer science, and logic, such as SIGMOD, PODS, ICDE, ICDT, WWW, ICALP, STACS, and LICS. Currently, he is on the editorial board of ACM Transactions on Database Systems, the advisory board of TheoretiCS, and is chairing the ICDT Council and the SIGMOD Research Highlight Award committee.

Publications:

I am working on a book about database theory, which can also be found on Github. The book is supposed to be suitable for teaching, but errors will be unavoidable, especially in early versions. You can make comments and point out errors in Github.

International students: Please do not contact me with questions about your eligibility or the requirements for our MSc in Computer Science. The criteria are explained here. (Yes, you need an IELTS or TOEFL certificate, even if your BSc education was in English. We have learned that an English BSc education does not necessarily bring sufficient English language skills.)

Since we receive 600+ applications per year, I cannot check your requirements by email before you apply in CampusOnline. Please forgive me if I do not reply to such emails.
