From facilitating cutting-edge research, to enabling the next generation of business applications that require real-time queries of connected data, graph technologies are changing the way we innovate. GraphConnect is the premier conference to hear and share these stories of innovation.

GraphConnect 2018 will be held September 20th at the Marriott Marquis in New York City.

Share Your Graph Story

Topics we’re looking for (think of these as inspirations, not limitations!):

  • Digital transformation

  • Cloud deployments

  • Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

  • Design thinking

  • Graphs at scale

  • Integrations: API integration, GraphQL, polyglot best practices, etc.

Types of talks we’re looking for:

  • Developer Best Practices: Lessons learned from the front lines of Neo4j production deployments. Share your knowledge, experience and code with other developers so we can all learn together.

  • Business Case Studies: How did graph technology transform your business model or bottom line? How did you get sign-off from decision makers? How has the change impacted your operations?

  • Technical Case Studies: You had a problem, and you solved it. Show us how you did it! Walk us through your design thinking. Show us your stack. How does graph tech fit in, and why was it the solution?

We Welcome Everyone

Are you a first-time speaker? We’ll help you prepare for your talk by providing guidance on content as well as rehearsals to help with speaking style. We may even be able to set you up to talk at a local meetup to build your confidence.

Are you a seasoned public speaker? Be sure to let us know. We can also provide help fine-tuning content and speaking style if you desire.
