The 2nd International Workshop on Graph Data Management: Techniques and Applications (GDM 2011) in conjunction with IEEE International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE 2011) will be held on April 16, 2011, Hannover, Germany.
There has been a lot of interest in the application of graphs in different domains. They have been widely used for data modeling of different application domains such as chemical compounds, multimedia databases, protein networks, social networks and semantic web. With the continued emergence and increase of massive and complex structural graph data, a graph database that efficiently supports elementary data management mechanisms is crucially required to effectively understand and utilize any collection of graphs.
The overall goal of the workshop is to bring people from different fields together, exchange research ideas and results, and encourage discussion about how to provide efficient graph data management techniques in different application domains and to understand the research challenges of such area. The workshop will feature invited talks from different industrial/research graph database projects (AllegroGraph, DEX, InfiniteGraph, Neo4j, OrientDB, sones/GraphDB).
