He is the winner of the SIGMOD 2010 Programming Contest, organized by Pierre Senellart and Serge Abiteboul. Teams of contestants from degree-granting institutions had to develop an efficient distributed query engine on top of an in-memory index. The competition received much attention, with 29 teams from 23 different institutions over the world. H. Park will give a talk on its experience of the SIGMOD 2010 Programming Contest at 2pm in the meeting room G008 of INRIA-Saclay .
