LDBC 8th TUC Meeting: Call for Speakers

On behalf of the Linked Data Benchmark Council (LDBC), we invite you to attend and present at the LDBC's 8th Technical User Community (TUC) meeting. 

If you are interested to present, please fill out the following form by May 27, 2016: Form: LDBC TUC Meeting - Call for Speakers

The LDBC TUC meeting is a two-day bi-annual event to discuss graph data management user scenarios in an informal setting. Previous events have been held in Greece, Spain, Germany, UK and other exciting locations. This time we are happy to hold the TUC in the heart (at least outskirts) of Silicon Valley at the Oracle Conference Center in Redwood Shores, California on Wednesday and Thursday June 22-23, 2016. The TUC meeting is organized together with the GRADES2016 workshop on Graph Data management Experiences & Systems (Friday June 24, 2016), and is organized close in time to the premier database systems conference SIGMOD2016 that will be held in San Francisco (June 26-July 1, 2016).

LDBC brings academics, industry, and users together for developing benchmarks whereby the state-of-the-art and advances in graph database technologies can be assessed and directed. Graph-based approaches to data management have proven key to new kinds of data analysis applications, not only for social networks, biological networks and the Semantic Web, but for all kinds of data management user scenarios in which relationships between data entities matter most. The last few years have seen a huge uptake of interest in graph technology from both academia and industry: smarter algorithms for efficiently processing of large-scale graphs are invented, new database systems and graph frameworks are rapidly being developed, and, efforts are ongoing to standardize graph benchmarks and graph query languages. LDBC stands at the forefront of these developments, and, this TUC Meeting thus provides a great opportunity for you to connect with other practitioners and experts in the field.

In the agenda of the TUC meeting, 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 call out for speakers and 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. But nothing is excluded a priori if it is graph data management related (e.g. graph query languages, algorithms, etc.).

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 TUC meetings, its graph technology users contacts but also eventually its membership base.

If you have any questions, please email ldbctuc.speakers@gmail.com

We hope to see you in Silicon Valley end of June.
