Did you find that at <>
 That’s the only thing I can find via Google about it.  Do you have more detail or a link
to the paper itself?  I get the feeling that it is not yet fully complete despite 21 November
camera-ready CIDR 2017 deadline.

For those who aren’t familiar with CIDR, it is a conference that occurs every other year.
 This year’s agenda/program may be found at <>.
 CIDR is not an acronym for network subnet masks—the first thing I thought of, Classless
Inter Domain Routing, but Conference on Innovative Data Systems Research, which focuses primarily
on systems.  I hate to admit this, but I’m unfamiliar with the conference, however that
appears that it is because I’ve been out of academia for far too long, and this conference
seems to be the presentation of quite a few interesting papers.  Just judging by title, a
poor, yet humorous judge indeed, I like:
- “Dependency-Driven Analytics: A Compass for Uncharted Data Oceans” (Donald - Why just
data lakes when you can have data oceans?)
- “My Weak Consistency is Strong” (Donald - Great title, reminds me of Star Wars and the
- “SPOOF: Sum-Product Optimization and Operator Fusion for Large-Scale Machine Learning”
(Donald - Another brilliant backronym.)

The Weld paper is the last paper to be presented on 10 January 2017 between 2:30 and 4:05

On a side note, looking down that page a little, I love the title of the last paper in 2016,
Yggdrasil: An Optimized System for Training Deep Decision Trees at Scale <>.
 When I see Yggdrasil, the first thing I think of is a really big tree and Norse mythology.
 It’s a great name.  I’m going to read some of his other papers this weekend.
