The LDBC consortium is pleased to announce its Seventh Technical User Community (TUC) meeting.
This will be a two-day event at IBM's TJ Watson facility on Monday and Tuesday November 9/10, 2015.
This will be the first TUC meeting after the finalisation of the LDBC FP7 EC funded project. The event will basically set the following aspects:
We welcome all users of RDF and Graph technologies to attend. If you are interested, please, contact Damaris Coll (UPC) at email@example.com; in order to notify IBM security in advance, registration requests need to be in by Nov 1.
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 graph data management related. Talk proposals can be forwarded to Damaris as well and will be handled by Peter Boncz (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Larri (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.
