WAMDM means " Web And Mobile Data Management", Which is Professor Xiaofeng Meng's research lab and is affiliated with the Key Laboratory for Data Engineering and Knowledge Engineering MOE and the Department of Computer Science, School of Information, Renmin University of China.

The research vision in WAMDM is how database techniques would fit into the Web and Mobile computing environments. The research style in our lab is having two tracks - research and system - in order to ensure that the research is actually applied. Innovative data systems research is our goal.

WAMDM Lab has been conducting database related research for many years, and is considered one of the best database groups in the country. It's projects range from the Web Data Management, XML Data Management to Mobile Data Management in the past ten years. Now we are focusing on Cloud data management, databases for new storage hardware, privacy protection for mobile Web, social computing etc. in the new decade.

The site contains information on the projects that are currently in progress and the people in the group. You can also find information on the weekly seminar and annual report. In addition, this site hosts the following webpages:

  • 2018-09-30 The privacy problem of mobile application and compliance practice for GDPR by Minjie Zhu
  • Abstract: Service providers of mobile application collect large amounts of user data through App permissions. How to quantify these privacy risks is a major challenge nowadays. Based on previous related studies, this paper proposes a permission-based quantification model of app privacy risk under each category. By defining importance, sensitivity, and usage rate of each permission, we calculate the privacy risk value of each app, which also can be used to discriminate normal App and malicious App. The experimental results indicates the availability and effectiveness of the quantitative model.eneral Data Protection Regulation(GDPR) came into force on 2018-05-25, which has a huge impact on the pretect of user privacy. According to our studies, we can see the compliance improvement for mobile application development after GDPR is mainly reflected in three aspects: privacy policy, privacy dashboard, and data transparency of third-party developers.
  • 2018-09-30 Continuous Cross Match in Large-scale Dynamic Astronomical Data Flow by Zhiqiangduan
  • Abstract: In modern astronomy, Short-Timescale and Large Field-of-view (STLF) sky survey produce large volume data and face a great challenge in cross identification. Furthermore, transient survey projects are required to select the candidates fast from large volume data. However, traditional cross identification methods didn鈥檛 satisfy the observation of transient survey. We present a fast and efficient cross identification system for large-scale astronomical data streams. By receiving a high-frequency star catalog and maintaining a local star catalog, the system partitions the star catalog and cross identification with the object catalog. Additionally, our system shows good performance in low latency large volume astronomical data processing.
