Graph-TA 2014 : Workshop on Graph-based Technologies and Applications
Call For Papers
We are delighted to invite you to the 2nd Workshop on Graph-based Technologies and Applications (Graph-TA). After a very successful first edition, with more than thirty international attendees and many engaging presentations and posters, we are organizing a new edition. This edition will follow a similar format, with short presentations and poster sessions with a lot of discussions and networking.
Graph-TA, organized by DAMA-UPC (Data Management) group of Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya – BarcelonaTech, aims at encouraging researchers to present their current work and interact in an informal set up in order to foster collaboration with other colleagues. Thus, the workshop will provide a forum for presenting and discussing research results and applications in the domain of graphs from different communities, i.e. computer science researchers working in the fields of database and management technologies, pattern recognition, graph algorithms, etc., practitioners using graphs to model their field of application, researchers in mathematics and physical sciences, representing, for instance, the graph theory and complex systems fields, etc.
The scope of Graph-TA 2014 is very broad and includes, but it is not limited to, the following topics:
* Graph technologies and databases
* Transactionality, languages and algebras for graph management
* Graph matching
* Use of graph technologies with other management technologies
* Graph based learning and clustering
* Social network analysis
* Complex networks
* Data mining with graphs
* Mathematics of graphs
* Benchmarking graph and RDF technologies
* RDF and graph reasoning
* Linked and Open Data
* Applications of graph technologies and theory
Graph-TA2014 will be a one-day single-track workshop and will be held in Barcelona, 21.02.2014. The workshop will be very structured but informal at the same time. Thus, we expect to have three sessions, two in the morning and one after lunch. In each session we expect to have several brief presentations (less than 10 minutes), followed by poster sessions of the presentations, including other not orally presented posters, allowing all the participants to discuss, and give their thoughts and suggestions on the presented works.
We encourage all participants to prepare a title and abstract (~300 words) and send it to ddomings at ac.upc.edu before 10.01.2014. In the event of too many presentation proposals, we reserve the right to restrict them to one per research group attending, although we will allow the rest of contributions to be presented as a poster. On 20.01.2014 we will tell you whether your abstract becomes a presentation with poster or only a poster. After the workshop, all the presentations (both oral and poster) will be included in the Graph-TA web page if the authors authorise us to do so.
The registration fee to the workshop is 50€ (to be paid in cash at the venue, where we'll provide a proof of payment) and will cover the organization expenses, which include:
* Online access to the workshop presentations (upon author permission)
* Coffee breaks
* Workshop venue
