11th TUC meeting in Austin recap: Amazon's AWS Neptune, G-CORE graph query language, Social Network Benchmark BI workload and other interesting talks!
Last 8th of June took place the 11th LDBC TUC meeting, located this time in the University of Texas in Austin. We thank the local organisation of Intel Corp for having us!
The event counted with 27 attendees and a full agenda of 11 talks in a single day. We would like to mention a few of the excellent presentations like for instance Brad Bebee talking about the new graph database service of the Amazon Web Services called Neptune, which has been a worlwide new as well. It shows the importance big companies are also giving to graph databases. We also had the updates of their products from Neo4j, Oracle and Huawei.
There was a lot of interesting discussion on the G-CORE graph query language proposal of LDBC which Peter Boncz presented for the GraphQL task force, that will officially be presented this Thursday also at SIGMOD 2018 in Houston.
Discussion and feedback was also raised for the Social Network Benchmark BI workload, presented by Gabor Szarnyas of the SNB task force. In fact, a short preview paper on this was just presented at the NDA-GRADES workshop this last Sunday, in Houston as well, co-located with the SIGMOD event. The paper can also be read on our publication repository link here.
All presentations of the TUC meeting can be checked and downloaded from here: http://wiki.ldbcouncil.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=91422722 and check the published papers on our publication repository, direct link here.
Finally, we would like to raise your attention becase the SNB task force is looking for additional members, if you are interested please don't hesitate to contact us!
Stay tuned for next LDBC events.
