2017 Conference on Big Data from Space (BiDS 17)

Event Type Conference
Start-End 28/11/2017 -  30/11/2017
Objective The BiDS'17 Conference is co-organised by the European Space Agency (ESA), the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission, and the European Union Satellite Centre (SatCen).  This is the third edition of the BiDS conference cycle and it will be hosted by the Centre National d'Études Spatiales (CNES) in Toulouse.

Big Data from Space refers to the massive spatio-temporal Earth and Space observation data collected by space-borne and ground based sensors, and to synergetic use of data coming from other sources and communities. This domain is currently facing sharp development with numerous new initiatives and breakthroughs ranging from intelligent sensors to data science. These developments are empowering new approaches and applications in various and diverse domains influencing life on earth, from sensing cities. monitoring human settlements and urban areas to climate change and security.

The objective of this conference is to stimulate interactions and bring together researchers, engineers, users, infrastructure and service providers, interested in exploiting Big Data from Space.
