Dear all,

with the usual apologies for cross posting, we would like to announce  
the LDBC project (http://ldbc.eu).

On November 9, 2012, the EU confirmed the start of the new FP7 project  
called Linked Data Benchmark Council (LDBC). The main objective of  
LDBC is the development of benchmarks for the emerging field of RDF  
and graph data management systems, as well as to spur industry  
cooperation around such benchmarks. This new council of database  
software vendors and academics will establish benchmarks and publish  
benchmark results that will make the properties of RDF and graph data  
management systems insightful.

The LDBC audience includes IT professionals interested in using these  
emerging technologies, researchers in both the database and semantic  
web research communities, and data management technology vendors.

The outcomes of the LDBC project will be

     (i) a set of benchmarks that will span four technical expertise  
areas: complex query execution, transactionality in graphs, RDF  
inference and RDF support for ETL/data integration, and
     (ii) the creation of an industry-supported LDBC organization that  
will outlive the EU project, and which ultimately aims to include the  
entire set of RDF and graph database vendors.

The LDBC also engages users of graph and RDF data management  
technology in its Technical User Community (TUC); where users have the  
opportunity to interact with the LDBC in order to make sure their  
experiences and needs find their way into LDBC benchmarks. The TUC  
will kick off its activities on November 19/20, 2012 at the first  
scheduled meeting in Barcelona. Alternatively, an online questionnaire  
is available at http://goo.gl/PwGtK for interested parties can make  
contributions on their experiences and needs for consideration in the  
LDBC benchmarks.

For more information, please visit the LDBC web page http://ldbc.eu to  
learn more about the project, and http://ldbc.eu/tuc to engage with  
its technical user community.
