As announced at XLDB-2013 last September, we are organizing a satellite XLDB workshop in Rio de Janeiro/Brazil, June 3-4.
The meeting will focus primarily on topics related to scientific and industrial Big Data Management and Analytics from the perspective of South American communities, with goals to identify commonalities, potential longer term collaboration opportunities, and to better integrate South American communities into our ongoing XLDB efforts.

The organizing committee led by Luiz da Costa has been working on logistics and reaching out to the local communities in South America for some time, and we are now starting to assemble the list of invitees.
If you are interested in attending the Rio workshop, please contact us through the contact us form. (Space is limited so don’t delay!) It is a great opportunity to make connections, gather ideas from new communities, and share experiences (and visit Brazil!), so I am sure we will easily put together a strong group.
Let me know if you have any questions.
