Welcome to NoSQL-Net 2015 - 2nd International Workshop on NoSQL Databases, Emerging Database Technologies and Applications. Following the successful first year, the workshop will again be held in conjunction with DEXA 2015 conference, this time in Valencia, Spain. It will be a one-day workshop scheduled during the main conference, i.e. September 1 - 4, 2015.


Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMSs) have been the predominant database systems over the last decades; they are established and mature systems with a declarative standard language SQL that offers complex operations (like joins) and their tabular data format is simple, strong, widely used and easy-to-understand. However, recent developments in distributed storage systems and large amount of data, so-called “Big Data”, have revealed some inherent weaknesses of the relational model.

The new research challenges, that will be addressed in this workshop, are related to:

  • the emerging methods and techniques leveraged in NoSQL databases,
  • the alternative technologies for solving different Big Data workload–related problems,
  • the emerging database technologies and applications (mobile databases, multimedia databases, geographical information systems, biological / bioinformatics databases, sensor data management),
  • the NoSQL advantages in Social networking and Semantic Web applications,
  • the emerging pan-European data infrastructure that will enable interoperability, interlinking and reuse of open data in public and also commercial services, and
  • the need for enhanced security in the forthcoming business models (e-government, e-commerce).
