The workshop BOSS'17 will be held in conjunction with the
43rd International Conference on
Very Large Data Bases
Munich, Germany • 28 August - 1 September 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.
