Call for Presentations

We are happy to invite you to the 4th Workshop on Graph-based Technologies and Applications (Graph-TA). After a very successful three editions, with more than a thousand international attendees so far and many engaging presentations and posters, we are organizing a third 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 the 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. 

Scope and participation details

The scope of Graph-TA 2016 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
Data Generation and all the associated aspects

Graph-TA 2016 will be a one-day single-track workshop and will be held in Barcelona on 04.03.2015. 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 6 minutes), followed by poster sessions of the presentations, including other not orally presented posters, allowing all the participants to discuss and interact providing their thoughts and suggestions on the presentations. 

We encourage all participants to prepare a title and abstract (~300 words) and send it to before 20.02.2016 delayed until 25.02.2016. 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.


The registration fee to the workshop is 30€ and will cover the organization expenses, which include: 

Online access to the workshop presentations (upon author permission) 
Coffee breaks 
Workshop venue 

We will kindly ask you to confirm your attendance before 29.02.2016 in order to facilitate the organising tasks, by sending an e-mail to
