Motivated by the ongoing success of Linked Data and the growing amount of semantic data sources available on the Web, new challenges to query processing are emerging. Especially in distributed settings that require joining data provided by multiple sources, sophisticated optimization techniques are necessary for efficient query processing. We propose novel(More)
— Recently, the SPARQL query language for RDF has reached the W3C recommendation status. In response to this emerging standard, the database community is currently exploring efficient storage techniques for RDF data and evaluation strategies for SPARQL queries. A meaningful analysis and comparison of these approaches necessitates a comprehensive and(More)
In this paper we present FedBench, a comprehensive benchmark suite for testing and analyzing the performance of federated query processing strategies on semantic data. The major challenge lies in the heterogeneity of semantic data use cases, where applications may face different settings at both the data and query level, such as varying data access(More)
We study fundamental aspects related to the efficient processing of the SPARQL query language for RDF, proposed by the W3C to encode machine-readable information in the Semantic Web. Our key contributions are (i) a complete complexity analysis for all operator fragments of the SPARQL query language, which -- as a central result -- shows that the SPARQL(More)
We study the termination problem of the chase algorithm, a central tool in various database problems such as the constraint implication problem, Conjunctive Query optimization, rewriting queries using views, data exchange, and data integration. The basic idea of the chase is, given a database instance and a set of constraints as input, to fix constraint(More)
In this demonstration, we present the main-memory based streaming XQuery engine GCX which implements novel buffer management strategies that combine static and dynamic analysis to keep main memory consumption low. Depending on the progress made in query evaluation, memory buffers are dynamically purged and minimized. In this demo, we show the various stages(More)
Acknowledgements My special thanks go to professor Christoph Koch and Stefanie Scherzinger. In particular, I want to thank professor Christoph Koch for having chosed the exciting topic, for excellent supervision, many discussions and all the time he spent in supporting my diploma thesis. Stefanie Scherzinger contributed to this thesis with many valuable(More)
Many government organizations publish a variety of data on the web to enable transparency, foster applications, and to satisfy legal obligations. Data content, format, structure, and quality vary widely, even in cases where the data is published using the wide-spread linked data principles. Yet within this data and their integration lies much value: We(More)
