HILDA is a great workshop co-located with SIGMOD that aims to bring a human-centric perspective to data management.

Juliana, Carsten and Eugene were kind enough to invite me to be on the panel: here are the slides for my statement.

This year was the first time I attended, and I had a great time: Jock Mackinlay gave the keynote, and the many stimulating talks were a great mix of vis, HCI, and data management. I hope I can come back next year; the rest of SIGMOD, still to come, has a pretty high bar to clear.
