[SC5] Big Data for Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials – Workshop #3

September 19 - September 20

Free

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 substances releases in the atmosphere, to present the 2nd use-case pilot and to introduce ongoing work towards the 3rd and final pilot.

The BDE SC5 workshop will take place on the first day of a two-day event with the title “Collective Awareness Platform on Data Needs, Citizens participation and Regulatory Challenges on Big Society Challenges with a Worldwide Exploitation of Emerging Technologies”, co-organised with JRC Ispra. The event will take place on September 19-20, 2017, in the EC premises in Brussels, Belgium and it is designed to encourage active participation by EC officials, scientists and stakeholders.

Background Information

The 2nd BDE SC5 pilot utilises large volumes of weather data to support decision making during hypothetical incidents of radionuclide releases in the atmosphere.  This pilot estimates the origin of unknown releases of detected radioactive material by making use of historical meteorological data and by forming a large database consisting of pre-computed dispersion data and measurements. Using big data technologies and machine learning techniques, the pilot demonstrates potential in complementing more rigorous – and computationally expensive – inverse modelling methods.

During this workshop, stakeholders will be informed in more detail about the design and aims of the BDE SC5 goals and pilots and will be encouraged to join in discussions covering the overall SC5 domain and the role of big data technologies in meeting the challenges identified.
