Subject Fwd: [Dbworld] BOSS 2017: Call for Tutorials
Date Wed, 03 May 2017 04:22:08 GMT
Time for us to put together a proposal to do an AsterixDB tutorial 
adjacent to VLDB in Munich, if we want to! (Which I think we should...)

     ***** 3rd Workshop on Big Data Open Source Systems *****
	              *** Call for Proposals ***

                    *** September 1, 2017 ***
                     *** Munich, Germany ***
	       *** held in conjunction with VLDB 2017 ***

The Third Workshop on Big Data Open Source Systems (BOSS'17) at
this year's VLDB will give a deep-dive introduction into several
active, publicly available, open-source systems. The systems
will be presented in hands-on tutorials by experts and
developers. The tutorials will give details on installation,
loading data, running specific workloads, and non-trivial
example usages. To this end, the participants will get hands on
experience to perform all the operations themselves. A large
variety of systems participated in the previous instances of the
workshop (Apache AsterixDB, Apache Flink, Apache Reef, Apache
Singa, Apache Spark, Apache SystemML, Gobblin, HopsFS & ePipe,
Padres, rasdaman, Rheem, SciDB).

There will be an *open call for tutorials* and a *public vote on
the proposed tutorials*.

The workshop follows a novel massively parallel format. After a
joint introduction, multiple parallel tutorial sessions are held.
Each tutorial is 2 hours in length and will be repeated so that
participants can attend two tutorials.

Call for Tutorials

*Important date: Open until May 15.*

In order to propose a tutorial, please email a short abstract
with a brief description of the system, an outline of the
planned tutorial, the technology used for the hands on tutorial,
a list of presenters involved, and a link to the website of
your system to

Public vote: will be open for two weeks until June 15.
Accepted presenters: will be notified by June 30.

Selection Process for Tutorials

After a sanity check on the submissions making sure that they
are complete and relevant (i.e., they are open source, publicly
available, and big data related), the workshop will use an *open
voting process* similar to the Hadoop Summit. Thereby we will
ensure that the tutorials that are most interesting to a broad
audience will be chosen, and that they will be attended by many
