Big Data is one of the most interesting and active areas nowadays, full of potential challenging subjects for mathematical researchers. In this conference, held in Porto on June 2, 2017, that subject will be approached in a broadband manner, targeting both industry and research partners, by taking special interest at new insights in what the future may bring concerning the so called Industry 4.0 and related challenges, including regulation and privacy concerns.
Although there is little time available on this one-day conference, the organization has reserved some time for short-communications, posters and startups presentations. If you have any success story, any real world application connected with your research, or if you want to present your startup to a broadband audience, please let us know. Maybe you may get a few minutes on stage.
This conference in Big Data serves as a launching event of the PT-MATHS-IN, the Portuguese Network for Mathematics in Industry and Innovation, which is the Portuguese representative of the European Service Network of Mathematics for Industry and Innovation (EU-MATHS-IN), whose goal is to leverage the impact of Mathematics in Industry, promoting information exchange and developing partnerships between these two groups. EU-MATHS-IN is now a European network of 14 countries national consortiums.
It will be perfect to get together industry, research community, startups and regulators in a out-of-the-box discussion in the recently awarded "Best European Destination 2017" city of Porto.
Come to Porto, get fresh ideas and new insights regarding Big Data, and as side effect, enjoy its World Heritage Historical Centre, hospitality, gastronomy and nice weather.
This conference, organized by PT-MATHS-IN, is sponsored and supported by several institutions. Check out our sponsors and supporters. Contact us at BD2017@spm.pt if you want to become a sponsor/supporter.
