    Held virtually this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ACM SIGMOD/PODS Conference is a leading international forum for database researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore cutting-edge ideas and results, and to exchange techniques, tools, and experiences in all aspects of data management. This year, Brown CS students, faculty, and alums published seven papers at SIGMOD, on topics ranging from deep semantic compression for tabular data to benchmarking interactive data exploration:
