LDBC is pleased to announce its Eleventh Technical User Community (TUC) meeting.
LDBC Technical User Community meetings serve to (1) learn about progress in the LDBC task forces on graph benchmark development, (2) to give feedback on these, and (3) hear about user experiences with graph data management technologies or (4) learn about new graph technologies from researchers or industry – LDBC counts Oracle, IBM, Intel, Neo4j and Huawei among its members.
This TUC meeting will be a one-day event preceding the SIGMOD/PODS 2018 conference in Houston, Texas (not too far away, the whole next week). Note also that at SIGMOD/PODS in Houston on Sunday 10, there is a research workshop on graph data management technology called NDA-GRADES2018 as well, so you might combine travel.
We welcome all users of RDF and Graph technologies to attend. If you are interested to attend the event, please, contact Damaris Coll (UPC) at firstname.lastname@example.org to register; registration is free, but required.
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 are handled by Peter Boncz (email@example.com) and Larri (firstname.lastname@example.org). Local organizer is Juan Sequeda (email@example.com).
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.
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 Friday morning, with a program from 10:30-17:00
