NoSQL-Net 2016 : 3rd International Workshop on Emerging Database Technologies and Linked Data Applications
Call For Papers
3rd International Workshop on Emerging Database Technologies and Linked Data Applications
in conjunction with DEXA 2016 in Porto, September 5 - 8, 2016.
In the last few years, NoSQL databases, main memory databases and stream data management as well as RDF-based technologies have matured enough, so that the Gartner, Inc., the world's leading information technology research and advisory company, has identified them as the top technology trends that will play key roles in modernizing information management in 2013 and beyond. Thus it is natural that a ‘Emerging Database Technologies and Linked Data Applications' workshop is organized in conjunction with the DEXA conference, one of the oldest conferences for intelligent information management. As in the previous two years, the workshop welcomes submissions covering technological advances as well as industrial or scientific applications of novel data management technologies.
A major focus will be given this year to semantic technologies based on the Linked Data paradigm. A semantic approach to publishing and sharing information (based on the Linked Data paradigm) is already recognized and recommended in European strategic documents.
RDF, the Resource Description Framework, is one of the key ingredients of Linked Data, and provides a generic graph-based data model for describing things, including their relationships with other things.
The new research challenges, that will be addressed in this workshop, are related to:
- the emerging methods and techniques leveraged in NoSQL databases,
- the emerging database technologies and applications (mobile databases, multimedia databases, geographical information systems, biological / bioinformatics databases, sensor data management),
- the emerging pan-European data infrastructure that will enable interoperability, interlinking and reuse of open data in public and also commercial services,
- the NoSQL advantages in Social networking and Semantic Web applications,
- the need for enhanced security in the forthcoming business models (e-government, e-commerce),
- the alternative technologies for solving different Big Data workload–related problems.
* Areas of interests include, but are not limited to:
- Schema design and schema evolution for Linked Data
- Linked Data tools (platforms / frameworks / services)
- Linked Data standard technologies
- Linked Data workflow (publication / consumption)
- Linked Data applications (e.g., e-Government, e-Environment, or e-Health)
- Quality and trustworthiness of Linked Data
- Interoperability between different knowledge organization schemas
- Efficient and effective processing and management of Big Data
- Advances in NoSQL databases (key/value, columnar, document)
- Advances in Graph databases
- Advances in In-Memory data management
- Map/Reduce framework and its exploitation
- Security mechanisms for NoSQL management
