We are pleased to invite you to the upcoming BDE-SC5 event entitled “Collective Awareness Platform on Data Needs, Citizens’ Participation and Big Regulatory Society Challenges: A Worldwide Exploitation of Emerging Technologies” to take place on 6-7 November 2017 in Brussels, co-organised by BDE and JRC-Ispra.
Postponed – more information to follow soon!
In order to ensure this event is as well-attended and productive as possible, we decided to postpone this even to the 2nd week of November. We will post more information as soon as possible. Thank you for your interest in our work. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience.
We are pleased to announce the third and final in a scheduled series of workshops regarding supporting the SC5 domain within the project Big Data Europe (BDE). The aims of this workshop are to discuss the role of big data technologies in emergency response scenarios related to events of hazardous substance releases in the atmosphere, to present the 2nd use-case pilot and to introduce ongoing work towards the 3rd and final pilot.
NCSR “Demokritos” has taken the opportunity to present the 2nd SC5 BDE pilot at the European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2017 (EGU’17), which is taking place in Vienna, Austria (23-28 April 2017).
The BDE contribution was titled “Identifying Patterns in the Weather of Europe for Source Term Estimation” and was presented on Tuesday 25 April at the session ESSI3.2 on Earth science on Cloud, HPC and Grid. After the short PICO presentation we’ve had the chance to discuss the goals and methodology of the SC5 pilot, as well as how the BDE platform has enabled its implementation.
