LDBC is pleased to announce its Ninth Technical User Community (TUC) meeting.

This will be a two-day event at the SAP Headquarters in Walldorf, Germany on February 9+10, 2017

 This will be the third TUC meeting after the finalisation of the LDBC FP7 EC funded project. The event will basically set the following aspects:

  • Two day event with one day devoted to User's experiences and one day devoted to benchmarking experiences.
  • Presentation of the benchmarking results for the different benchmarks.
  • Interaction with the new LDBC Board of Directors and the LDBC organisation officials. 

We welcome all users of RDF and Graph technologies to attend. If you are interested, please, contact Damaris Coll (UPC) at damaris@ac.upc.edu;

In the agenda, there will be talks given by LDBC members and LDBC activities, but there will also be room for a number of short 20-minute talks by other participants. We are specifically interested in learning about new challenges in graph data management (where benchmarking would become useful) and on hearing about actual user stories and scenarios that could inspire benchmarks. Further, talks that provide feedback on existing benchmark (proposals) are very relevant. But nothing is excluded a priori if it is related to graph data management. Talk proposals can be forwarded to Damaris as well and will be handled by Peter Boncz (boncz@cwi.nl) and Larri (larri@ac.upc.edu).

Further, we call on you if you or your colleagues would happen to have contacts with companies that deal with graph data management scenarios to also attend and possibly present. LDBC is always looking to expand its circle of participants in TUCs meeting, its graph technology users contacts but also eventually its membership base.

 

Agenda 

In the TUC meeting there will be

  • updates on progress with LDBC benchmarks, specifically the Social Network Benchmark (SNB) and its interactive, business analytics and graphalytics workloads.
  • talks by data management practitioners highlighting graph data management challenges
  • selected scientific talks on graph data management technology

The  meeting will start on Thursday morning,  with a program from 09:00-18:00, interrupted by a lunch break.

Thursday evening (19:00-21:00) there will be a social dinner in Heidelberg.

Friday morning the event resumes from 9:00-12:00. In the afternoon, there is a (closed) LDBC Board of Directors meeting (13:00-16:30) at the same venue.

Maps and situation



Getting there

By plane

There are two airports close to SAP’s headquarter: Frankfurt Airport (FRA) and Stuttgart-Echterdingen Airport (STR). The journey from Frankfurt Airport to SAP headquarters takes
about one hour by car, while it takes slightly longer from Stuttgart- Echterdingen Airport. Concerning airfare, flights to Frankfurt are usually somewhat more expensive than to Stuttgart.

When booking flights to Frankfurt, you should be aware of Frankfurt-Hahn Airport (HHN), which serves low-cost carriers but is not connected to Frankfurt Airport. Frankfurt Hahn is ap-
proximately one hour from the Frankfurt main airport by car.

The journey from Frankfurt Airport to SAP headquarters takes about one hour by car (95 kilometers, or 59 miles).

Journey time from Stuttgart-Echterdingen Airport to SAP headquarters takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes by car (115 kilometers, or 71 miles).

Driving directions

Traveling from Frankfurt Airport (FRA) to SAP Headquarters
Directions to SAP headquarters:
• When leaving the airport, follow the highway symbol onto “A3/Würzburg/A5/Kassel/Basel/Frankfurt.”
• Follow the A5 to “Basel/Karlsruhe/Heidelberg.”
• Take exit 39 – “Walldorf/Wiesloch.”
• Turn left onto B291.
• Turn right onto Dietmar-Hopp-Allee.
(Should you use a navigational system which does not recognize the street name ‘Dietmar-Hopp-Allee’ please use ‘Neurottstrasse’ instead.)


Traveling from Stuttgart-Echterdingen Airport (STR) to SAP Headquarters

To get to SAP headquarters by car, there are two possible routes to take. The first leads you via Heilbronn and the second via Karlsruhe. The route via Karlsruhe is a bit shorter yet may be more congested.

Directions to SAP headquarters:
• When leaving the airport, follow the highway symbol onto “A8/Stuttgart/B27.”
• Stay on A8 and follow the sign for “Karlsruhe/Heilbronn/Singen/A8.”
• Follow A8 to Karlsruhe.
• Take exit 41 – “Dreieck Karlsruhe” to merge onto A5 toward “Frankfurt/Mannheim/Karlsruhe/Landau (Pfalz).”
• Take exit 39 – “Walldorf/Wiesloch.”
• Turn left onto B291.
• Turn right onto Dietmar-Hopp-Allee.


Parking

The closest parking lot to the event location is P7 (see figure above).

By Train

As the infrastructure is very well developed in Europe, and in Germany in particular, taking the train is a great and easy way of traveling. Furthermore, the trains usually run on time, so this mode of travel is very convenient, especially for a group of people on longer journeys to major cities.

From Frankfurt Airport (FRA) to SAP Headquarters

Directions to SAP headquarters:
• Go to Terminal 1, level T (see overview in Appendix).
• Go to the AIRail Terminal – “Fernbahnhof” (long-distance trains).
• Choose a connection with the destination train station “Wiesloch–Walldorf”.
• From station “Wiesloch–Walldorf,” take bus number 707 or 721 toward “Industriegebiet Walldorf, SAP.” It is a 10-minute ride to reach bus stop ‘SAP headquarters’.


From Stuttgart-Echterdingen Airport (STR) to SAP Headquarters
Directions to SAP headquarters:
• Go to the S-Bahn station in the airport, following the sign (station is called “Stuttgart Flughafen/Messe”).
• Take train number S2 or S3 to “Stuttgart Hauptbahnhof” (main station).
• From Stuttgart Hauptbahnhof choose a connection with the destination train station “Wiesloch–Walldorf”.
• From station “Wiesloch–Walldorf,” take bus number 707 or 721 toward “Industriegebiet Walldorf, SAP”. It is a 10-minute ride to reach bus stop ‘SAP headquarters’.
