We are happy to announce the 5th edition of the Graph Devroom co-located with FOSDEM 2017 in Room H.2214 at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (Campus Solbosch) in Belgium. FOSDEM is an annually software developers meeting attended by over 5000 free and open source enthusiasts from all over the world. The devroom will take place on Saturday, 4. February 2017 with a welcome at 10:00, and talks from 10:30AM till 19PM.
For the last years graph processing systems have gained a clear impact for processing complex, semi-structured, interrelated and distributed data sets. Thanks to many high quality open source implementations, comprehensive vendor solutions and outstanding community support, the graph space continues to accelerate adoption. New implementations and initiatives are announced regularly by players of all sizes. The more important it is for developers to stay informed and our Graph Devroom is a great opportunity to learn from the experts
In previous devrooms we saw many great presentations and demos. Deep discussions took place during and after the talks. Therefore, also in 2017 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:
This list is not closed, other related topics are always welcome.
Convinced? Interested in giving a talk or presenting a demo? We are looking for high quality technical (non-marketing) submissions, ranging from principles to practice and interesting to attendees with widely different backgrounds. Talks should be 20 to 30 minutes, lightning talks 5 to 10 minutes and consist of a presentation supported by slides, videos and/or demos. Any degree of interactivity is highly welcome. We also welcome other activity proposals different from “traditional” project presentations and talks. All submissions should be based on free and open software solutions or free and open APIs. All accepted presentations will be recorded.
