BIG 2015: Big Data Innovators Gathering

BIG 2015 (Bigdata Innovators Gathering) is a satellite event of WWW 2015, the 24th International World Wide Web Conference.

Many of today’s most successful enterprises - in business and in science - are built on the collection and analysis of data. The sheer volume and richness of these data sets has stimulated a massive wave of innovation. In addition, this revolution has also sparked important debate on data privacy policies, ethics and governance. The BigData Innovators Gathering (BIG) will bring together academic and industry leaders in the big data space to share the state of the art and its successful application in business. Please join us!
