The return of the graph. It has been a troublesome year with many ups and
downs, but we still want to give researchers, developers, practitioners and
whoever else is interested, the opportunity to come together and talk about
the latest advancements in the open source graph world. We think that
especially now it is important to create a space where people can share
their ideas and gain new inspirations

FOSDEM is an annual software developers meeting attended by over 8000+ free
and open source enthusiasts from all over the world. Caused by the global
pandemic, the FOSDEM 2021 will be the first ever online-only FOSDEM event.
The devroom will take place on Saturday, 6th February 2021

In the last year, many organizations added graph analytical capabilities to
their systems, e.g. Neo4j, Arango DB and Redis graph, to fulfill the rising
demand of analytical use-cases, often to be executed on a steadily growing
amount of data.

Graph based data science and machine learning approaches are becoming more
and more popular with approaches like graph embeddings and graph neural

Graph query languages became mainstream. GQL, an effort driven by many
graph database vendors, will be the first query language since SQL
standardized by the ISO. Research groups work on standardizing property
graph schemas.

In previous devrooms we saw many great presentations and demos. We hope
that we will be able to capture some of the spirit of an onsite event and
provide a space for actors and maintainers of graph solutions, researchers,
geeks and open source hackers the possibility of presenting their latest
work. As always, the devroom will invite both, beginners and experts.

*Important Note* The 2021 edition of FOSDEM will be an online-only event.
We will therefore prerecord all talks and perform a live Q&A after every
presentation. Presenting at FOSDEM implies permission to record your
session and distribute the recording afterwards. All videos will be made
available under the standard FOSDEM content license (CC-BY).

Talks are submitted via FOSDEM's conference system *Pentabarf*.
In order to submit a talk please follow these steps:

   1. Head over to https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM21
   2. Create an account if you do not have one already and sign in
   3. Make sure your profile information is up to date, including an image
   and a biographie
   4. Click on "Create Event"
   5. Enter the details of your talk
      - The title and a short abstract describing your
      presentation/demo/talk (max. 500 words)
      - The intended audience
      - Links and background information
      - Additional information you want to share with use, e.g., your
      availability for the Q&A
   6. Make sure to select the "Graph Systems and Algorithms devroom" track
   7. Make sure to select a duration of either 20 or 40 minutes (including
   5 minutes Q&A)
