This is remarkable.
Sooner or later, somebody had to organize an “international workshop on graph databases” in an academic setting. It happens with all technologies. So it’s not surprising that there will be one in July this year, in conjunction with a conference and with the proceedings published by Springer, just like you would expect.
It is surprising that the workshop is organized in China, by Chinese researchers. That’s a first, at least from what I have seen so far. Usually you would expect something in, say, Florida, or the south of France or perhaps Spain or Germany. But it is China.
Way to go! Some people are faster to spot a trend than others, and as an entrepreneur, I admire that.
