Daniel Abadi, the Darnell-Kanal Professor of Computer Science at the University of Maryland, recently received a “test of time” award for a paper he co-authored in 2009.

The award, from the Very Large Data Bases (VLDB) Endowment Inc., recognizes academic papers that have impacted data management and database research and have spurred additional research and scholarship in these areas.

HaDoopDB: An Architectural Hybrid of MapReduce and DBMS Technologies for Analytical Workloads” explores building a hybrid system for analytical databases. It has been cited more than 1,000 times.

Abadi received the award at VLDB 2019, the 45th international conference on very large databases that was recently held in Los Angeles.

In addition to his endowed chair in computer science, Abadi has an appointment in the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies.
