We have opened the XLDB-2015 conference registration. To take advantage of our early registration rate ($250) make sure you register before March 31.
In response to your requests, we are introducing a special student rate ($150). If you know any students genuinely interested in extreme-scale data management and analytics, pass the information on to them!
A draft of the conference agenda is available. We are still in process of finalizing the keynote speakers, but the session descriptions should give you a good idea of what topics we plan to cover. We are lining up keynote speakers and panelists of the same high caliber that XLDB is known for, so if you liked our past events, you will not want to miss this one.
Regarding the invitational workshop, we have now selected the topics to discuss. We will be sending out workshop invitations in the next few hours/days. If you don’t receive one, but you’re interested in attending and contributing to the discussions, don’t hesitate to contact us at xldb-admin at slac.stanford.edu.
We are still looking for a few more sponsors. The support from sponsors is essential every year. If your company can help, let me know.
As always, all the relevant information including links to registration, conference program, hotels, workshop topics, and the social event (which is fully included in the conference registration this year) can be found on the event website at http://xldb.org/2015
A quick reminder: February 28 is the deadline for submitting lightning talk and/or poster abstracts.
Please forward this email to your friends and colleagues who might be interested in attending XLDB-2015.
