LexisNexis Risk Solutions will be hosting the 5th annual HPCC Systems Summit Community Day taking place on October 8-9, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia. The purpose of the Summit is to gather engineers, data scientists and technology professionals to share knowledge and future roadmap plans for the HPCC Systems platform. This event is dedicated to showcase our community and have industry and academia present their HPCC Systems use cases, research projects and share their experience on how they leverage the HPCC Systems platform.

Accepted talks will include how HPCC Systems was leveraged in the areas of big data analytics, research and benchmarking, case studies, proof of concepts (POC), data mining and discovery, machine learning and natural language processing methodologies, graph analytics, IoT solutions, or any other use of the HPCC Systems platform. Catch a sneak peek of the agenda.  

Poster Presentations Competition
As part of Community Day, we will hold our 3rd annual poster presentations competition on Monday October 8, 2018 showcasing the work of our academia community. The posters will be on display throughout the event. Review the contest rules for more information and how to submit an entry. Submissions should be submitted via email.

Hands on ECL Workshops
Based on the sellout crowd last year, we will be holding two workshops this year on Monday October 8, 2018. The morning session will cover an overview of the HPCC Systems platform including data extraction and transformation using ECL. The afternoon session will allow attendees to work on a real world data problem putting their knowledge to use.
