The European Data Forum
From the event website: "The European Data Forum (EDF) 2012 will take place on June 6-7, 2012 in Copenhagen (Denmark) at the Copenhagen Business School (CBS).
It is a meeting place for industry, research, policymakers and community initiatives to discuss the challenges of Big Data and the emerging Data Economy and to develop suitable action plans for addressing these challenges.
Of special focus for the EDF are Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs), since they are driving innovation and competition in many data-driven economic sectors. The range of topics discussed at the European Data Forum ranges from novel data-driven business models (e.g. data clearing houses), and technological innovations (e.g. Linked Data Web) to societal aspects (e.g. open governmental data as well as data privacy and security).
EDF is based on a cross-project cooperation of LATC (Linked Open Data Around-the-Clock), LOD2, IKF, and PlanetData. It is supported by the European Commission and brought to you by STI International."
