Check out all the details and dates here, including information about submissions:

Discover the Schedule for the Graph Processing Room at FOSDEM 2016

FOSDEM is an annual conference at the Université Libre de Bruxelles in Belgium and 100% gathering 8000+ free and open source enthusiasts from all over the world. It’s all about sharing ideas, meeting contributors, collaborating and – of course – Belgian beer. An important part of the conference are the very popular Developer Rooms (DevRooms), which are all-day sessions focused on a specific topic, e.g., graphs, free Java, data science, etc.

Next year, we are proud to host the 7th edition of the Graph DevRoom, again with the of Neo4j community and several partners from the graph ecosystem. The DevRoom will take place on Saturday, February 2, 2019 with a welcome at 10am and talks from 10:30am till 7pm.

We want to invite you, the graph community, to join the conference and the Graph DevRoom, as visitors but also as speakers. We will again give creators and maintainers of graph solutions, researchers, geeks and open source hackers the possibility of presenting their latest work to an attentive audience.

This includes:

  • Graph databases, RDF stores and specialized network databases
  • Graph query languages (e.g. (open)Cypher, GQL, GraphQL or SPARQL) and user-friendly APIs (e.g. Gremlin)
  • (Distributed) Graph processing / analytics frameworks
  • Graph streaming and its applications
  • Machine learning and artificial intelligence applications using graphs
  • Natural language processing
  • Semantic Graphs (RDF) / Knowledge Graphs
  • Benchmarks
  • (Large-scale) graph visualization
  • Graphs and the Internet-of-Things
  • Real-life application of graph processing including industry experience

Of course, other related topics are welcome.

If you want to give a talk or a demo of your or someone else’s graph project, please submit a short proposal by Dec 2, 2018.
