BIG will be at the ICT 2013 in Vilnius

This week (6th-8th November) sees the ICT 2013 event in Vilnius. Over 4,000 people, including researchers, politicians and industrial representatives will attend to discuss the issues and vision for the future of ICT research in Europe. The conference is a key part of the European Commission’s Digital Agenda.
The market for Big Data technologies is projected to grow enormously over the next few years, and for that reason there is a dedicated programme of Big Data networking sessions at ICT 2013. There are six sessions to cover topics such as the impact of Big Data on the economy, the healthcare sector and Open Data.
The BIG project will be co-hosting a session with NESSI (the Networked European Software and Services Initiative) called “Data Value Research and Innovation in Horizon2020: Getting Europe to the forefront”. We will be discussing how to achieve a Data Value PPP (Public-Private Partnership) and presenting the results of strategic research done by the BIG project.
The speakers, who are representing both the BIG and NESSI projects, are: Stephan Fischer (SAP), Nuria de Lama (ATOS), Catherine Simon (Thales) and Michael May (Siemens). The session will be of interest to anyone wanting to learn about the roadmap for Big Data to drive growth in Europe, with a strong focus on industrial participation.
The session is on Thursday 7th November and runs from 14.50 to 15.35, in room H1C. If you’re at ICT 2013 come and say hello!
More information on the event  and the joint BIG & NESSI session are available on the website.
