The European Data Forum (EDF) 2013 takes place on April 9-10, 2013 in Dublin (Ireland).
The EDF series is a joint activity of the EC FP7 projects BIG, LOD2, and PlanetData and is supported by the European Commission.
Following a successful launch in 2012, this year’s edition of the European Data Forum will be addressing topics revolving around:
- novel innovations and business models for open and Linked Data as well as opportunities and challenges they may yield for Europe
- application scenarios and specific technical and non-technical requirements of Big Data providers and consumers in various sectors such as Smart Cities, Social Media and eScience
- SMEs and other technology providers offering tools to make use of Big Data
Central questions discussed in keynotes, presentations and networking sessions during the European Data Forum are: whether the European economy is ready for Big Data, if we are reaching out to relevant stakeholders and what does Europe provide in terms of innovative Business Intelligence solutions.
There are no sign-up fees at the EDF however, registration for planning purposes is recommended.
