ESWC 2017, May 28th, 2016 to June 1st​, 2017 Portoroz, Slovenia.

The aim of the mighty storage challenge is to test the performance of  
solutions for SPARQL processing in aspects that are relevant for  
modern applications. These include ingesting data, answering queries  
on large datasets and serving as backend for applications driven by  
Linked Data. The proposed challenge will test the systems against data  
derived from real applications and with realistic loads. An emphasis  
will be put on dealing with changing data in form of streams or  
updates. This version of the challenge (which we aim to run  
periodically for at least 3 years) will comprise the following tasks:

1. RDF Data ingestion Task will measure how well systems can ingest  
streams of RDF data.
2. Data storage Benchmark Task will measure how data stores perform  
with different types of queries.
3. Versioning RDF Data Task will measure how well versioning and  
archiving systems for Linked Data perform when they store multiple  
versions of large data sets.
4. Browsing Task will check existing solutions for how well they  
support applications that need browsing through large data sets.

More details on the different tasks can be found here:
