The Sixth International Workshop on Querying Graph Structured Data
(GraphQ 2017)
March 21, 2017 - Venice, Italy

Co-located with the EDBT/ICDT 2017 Joint Conference
March 21-24, 2017 - Venice, Italy

** Final Call for Papers **

** NEW **
Paper submission deadline EXTENDED TO
** November 27, 2016, 11:59pm Hawaii Time (hard deadline) **


We are pleased to announce that, thanks to the great success achieved in
previous editions, this year GraphQ will last as a full-day workshop. The
technical program will be enhanced featuring an opening keynote.

We solicit researchers to contribute to the GraphQ program with their best
research results. Please notice that this year the deadline is November 14.


The growing scale and importance of graph data in several database
application areas has recently driven much research efforts towards
the development of data models and technologies for graph-data

Life science databases, social networks, Semantic Web data,
bibliographical networks, knowledge bases and ontologies, are
prominent examples of application domains exhibiting data that is
natural to represent in graph-based form. Datasets in these domains
are often characterized by heterogeneity, complexity and largeness of
contents that make the querying experience a really challenging task.

The overall goal of the GraphQ workshop is to bring people from
different fields together, exchange research ideas and results, and
encourage discussion about how to efficiently and effectively support
graph queries in different application domains. GraphQ seeks at
providing the opportunity for inspiration and cross-fertilization for
the many research groups working on graph-structured data, with a
particular focus on the querying issues.

The workshop will welcome innovative papers from academic and
industrial researchers in the fields of information retrieval,
relational databases, Semantic Web, streaming data management, pattern
matching, biological databases, social networks, human-computer
interaction, and other related areas.

The main topics covered by the workshop include, but are certainly
not limited to:

- Query models and languages for graph-structured data
- Querying RDF graphs, ontologies, or other knowledge representations
- Querying XML and semi-structured databases
- Querying graph data using big data technologies
- Big graph data management for query answering
- Indexing large graphs for searching purposes
- Flexible query answering on graph-structured data
- Personalization in graph search and feedback
- Graph query processing and performance optimization
- Benchmarking query answering in graph databases
- Keyword search on graph-structured data
- Information retrieval on graph-structured data
- Graph pattern matching
- Querying distributed and/or heterogeneous graph-structured data
- Querying uncertain graphs
- Querying life science databases
- Query visualization and interactive interfaces for graph-structured data
- Graph query processing for Social Networks
- Graph data sharing and interoperability


Paper Submission Deadline: **November 27, 2016 (hard)**
Acceptance Notification: December 20, 2016
Camera Ready: January 15, 2017
GraphQ Workshop: March 21, 2017


GraphQ encourages researchers and practitioners to submit papers in
the following categories:

- *Regular papers* presenting mature and significant results of theoretical,
empirical, conceptual, and/or experimental research

- *Position papers* portraying new research directions and/or an arguable
opinion about an issue, discussing ideas, methods, procedures or results of
scientific research focused on the workshop topics

- *Visionary papers* describing a high-impact and visionary idea that is still
in its early stages of development, an exciting vision of a future system,
framework, algorithm, or technology

- *Work in progress papers*, short reports of ongoing work, less mature work,
partial achievements of longer-term projects, yet to be developed / not yet
consolidated approaches
