Neo Technology, creators of Neo4j, the world's leading graph database, today announced the dates and locations for its GraphConnect 2013 conferences, and opened its Call for Papers. GraphConnect events are confirmed for Boston, Chicago, London, New York City and San Francisco, with the first event to be held in Boston on June 11, 2013.

Graph adoption is accelerating in today's connected world. According to Gartner, "Graphs deliver a sustainable advantage to the consumer web."1 From Cisco's MDM (Master Data Management) system, to Twitter's use of graphs for mapping out billions of connections between its users, to Facebook's new Graph Search feature, companies across every industry have begun putting graphs to work in order to gain a competitive advantage. 

First launched last year in San Francisco with over 300 attendees and dozens of sessions by prominent graph leaders, GraphConnect is the only conference focusing on the rapidly growing world of graph databases and the applications that are making sense of connected data.

"Graphs are everywhere. The outpouring of support we received around GraphConnect 2012 allowed us to see first hand that graph database technology is top of mind for virtually every type of organization today. In order to grow the graph community worldwide we are bringing the event to multiple cities throughout 2013. The call for papers is now open and we encourage anyone -- in any industry -- to showcase your graph at one of our upcoming conferences. No matter the size of your project, we want to hear from you!" said Emil Eifrem, CEO of Neo Technology.

Talks at GraphConnect include presentations by Ian Robinson, Jim Webber, and Emil Eifrem, authors of the O'Reilly Media book Graph Databases, as well as other graph thought leaders and enthusiasts. Customer panels will cover topics such as Graphs in Fraud Detection and eDiscovery, and Graphs in Network and Data Center Management.

Come to GraphConnect to join thought leaders from a variety of disciplines and organizations to explore new ideas, share innovations in graph technology, and make connections with graph researchers and enthusiasts from around the world.
