EUDAT hosted the second ArrayDB WG workshop on 17 May 2017 in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
The workshop aimed at promoting a broad and fair discussion about real use of Array Databases for research communities. Multidimensional arrays are common data structures widely used in many scientific disciplines. Scientists increasingly require to manage and process large volumes of such multidimensional datasets.
The workshop had the following aims:
- Trying to understand the view of the scientific communities regarding ArrayDB - can they be a solution for multidimensional big data?
- Discussing benefits and limitations of these technologies and assess how they can support science and help addressing today’s challenges.
- Targeting technology experts, representatives of research communities and practitioners.
Who was it for?
Experts were invited to present their views and update the communities about the latest developments in the area of array databases. Communities dealing with multidimensional datasets were invited to expose their requirements, use cases and related challenges. Practitioners were invited to share their experience and lessons learned adopting ArrayDB in their community. Click here to download the workshop materials from the EUDAT B2DROP platform.
