There are also spots to sign up at the NLP group (please only sign up on one of them):
Lumify is an open source platform for big data analysis and visualization, designed to help organizations derive actionable insights from the large volumes of diverse data flowing through their enterprise. Utilizing both Hadoop and Storm, it ingests and integrates virtually any kind of data, from unstructured text documents and structured datasets, to images and video. Several open source analytic tools (including Tika, OpenNLP, CLAVIN, OpenCV, and ElasticSearch) are used to enrich the data, increase its discoverability, and automatically uncover hidden connections. All information is stored in a secure graph database implemented on top of Accumulo to support cell-level security of all data and metadata elements. A modern, browser-based user interface enables analysts to explore and manipulate their data, discovering subtle relationships and drawing critical new insights. In addition to full-text search, geospatial mapping, and multimedia processing, Lumify features a powerful graph visualization supporting sophisticated link analysis and complex knowledge representation.
Charlie Greenbacker, Director of Data Science at Altamira, will provide an overview of Lumify and discuss how natural language processing (NLP) tools are used to enrich the text content of ingested data and automatically discover connections with other bits of information. Joe Ferner, Senior Software Engineer at Altamira, will describe the creation of SecureGraph and how it supports authorizations, visibility strings, multivalued properties, and property metadata in a graph database.

The Navy League Building Conference Center is what some people call the room. The building closes at 6 PM, but we’ll hang out there to let everyone in on the Wilson Blvd entrance. Call Wes @[masked] if you get stuck outside.
Parking is not free in the building ~$8 for the night. Street parking opens up at 6PM, if you can find a spot. Parking is available on Adams Street on the west side of the building. Left turn around the building from Wilson, or left turn in front of the building from Clarendon. Apparently there is also underground parking for the metro.
Courthouse Metro is very easy [if you know the trick!]. At metro, go up the escalator and through a turnstile, and make an immediate right turn to the elevator. Take the elevator to the street, and as you exit the elevator, cross the street in front of you (Clarendon), go left to get on Wayne Street, and walk a short block to Wilson. Turn left around the bank and enter 2300 Wilson Blvd (Navy League Building). If you miss the elevator, you have to walk about 3 blocks twice, once underground and once on the street.
Looking forward to it! Thanks again to Segue Technologies for providing the meeting space, and to Neo Technology for beer and pizza.
