Our main contributions and expected results will be to :

  • Provide methods for building a time-dependent large-scale graph (TD-LSG), and for enriching a TD-LSG with external ontological resources
  • Provide methods for storing and accessing TD-LSG in a cloud computing infrastructure
  • Provide methods for querying and exploring to be executed on a distributed TD-LSG
  • Offer an open source TD-LSG framework

An important result of the project will be to enhance an active cooperation between the Brazilian and French teams. Attention will be paid to the aim to include young researchers from both teams. Another benefit consists in the possibility of an intensive contact and cooperation not only of the team members but also of further researchers, particularly PhD students of both institutions.
