The EU SatCen organised on Wednesday 13th of December 2017 (15.00-16.00 CET) an Hangout session on “Big Data for Secure Societies” in the framework of the BigDataEurope project and with regard to the “Secure Societies” Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge. The Hangout was the fifth of a scheduled series within the BigDataEurope project for the Secure Societies domain and it has been followed by attendees coming from EC, EU entities, ESA, private companies, universities and other public entities from a variety of domains in Secure Societies.
The 3rd edition of the Big Data from Space Conference (jointly organised by ESA, SatCen and JRC, and hosted by CNES) brought together in Toulouse around 500 participants interested in exploiting massive spatio-temporal Earth and Space observation data.
The Conference was co-chaired by Sergio Albani (SatCen), Jean-Pierre Gleyzes (CNES), Pier Giorgio Marchetti (ESA) and Pierre Soille (JRC).
The European Union Satellite Centre, leader of the BigDataEurope Secure Societies pilot, is organizing the 2017 Conference on Big Data from Space together with the European Space Agency and the Joint Research Centre of the EC. The Conference will be hosted by the Centre National d’Études Spatiales, between 28 – 30 November 2017, in Toulouse (France).
The objective of the conference is to stimulate interactions and bring together researchers, engineers, users, infrastructure and service providers interested in exploiting Big Data from Space; current SatCen initiatives on Big Data (including BigDataEurope) will be presented on the 30th of November during a session dedicated to Institutional Platforms (12A).
