Bilateral Contracts with Industry

Juliette Achddou's PhD research is set up as a CIFRE contract and supervision agreement between her employer, the Numberly company, and École normale supérieure.

We are in the process of finalizing a contract with Neo4j, the leading company in the field of graph databases, to work towards the creation of a new standard for graph languages called GQL, building on Neo4j's Cypher query language. On this, we do not start from scratch. In a joint effort between the Neo4j’s Cypher group and the Edinburgh database group led by Leonid Libkin, a formal specification of the core querying and update features of Cypher was produced. Starting in 2020, Libkin will chair a working group on the formal semantics of GQL. In addition to Valda, it will involve researchers from Edinburgh, Santiago, Warsaw, and other universities in Paris (Marne-la-Vallee and Paris-Diderot). The project is supported by a grant from Neo4j.
