The workshop BOSS'18 will be held in conjunction with the
44th International Conference on
Very Large Data Bases
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil • 27 August - 31 August 2018
Following the great success of the first, second, and third Workshop on Big Data Open Source Systems (BOSS'15, BOSS’16, BOSS’17) collocated with VLDB 2015, VLDB 2016, and VLDB 2017, the fourth Workshop on Big Data Open Source Systems (BOSS'18) will again give a deep-dive introduction into several active, publicly available, open-source systems. The systems will be presented in tutorials by experts in the presented systems. The tutorials will give details on installation and non-trivial examples usage of the presented system.
The workshop will consist of tutorials, we will publish the tutorial proposals on the website and encourage the presenters to publish the tutorial resources. In the previous editions, we published slides and project websites. We would encourage proposers to engage participants in a hands-on quick jump start familiarity exercise for the system.
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. Between the two tutorial sessions, a panel with the system experts will be held.
