             MOCHA 2017 - Mighty Storage Challenge
            May 28th to June 1st 2017, Portoroz, Slovenia
     In conjunction with the 14th European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 

The aim of this 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, versioning data, browsing and serving as backend for
applications using Linked Data. The MOCHA challenge will test the
systems against data derived from real applications and with realistic

This year, the challenge comprises the following tasks:
-Task 1 (Data Ingestion) will measure how well systems can ingest
  streams of RDF data.
-Task 2 (Data Storage) will measure how well data stores perform for
different types of queries.
-Task 3 (Versioning) will measure how well versioning and archiving
systems for Linked Data perform when they manage multiple versions of
large data sets.
-Task 4 (Browsing) will check if existing solutions perform adequately
for applications that address browsing through large data sets.

Participants will be expected to describe their solution and results
on the training datasets over a 5 page paper. In particular, a short
summary of the approach chosen, a link to the experimental results and
an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the approach are
