at Bordeaux ITS World Congress
Wednesday 7 October 2015
from 8h30 to 13h00
meeting room H1/H2

The workshop focuses on Big Data in the H2020 societal Challenge Smart, green and integrated transport. Participants to this workshop will have the opportunity to influence the design, and ultimate benefit from the Big Data platform that the BigDataEurope project will deliver. This platform aims to facilitate Big Data usage in real world examples, and will consist of an architecture, components, guidelines and best practices to make the best of Big Data in this case in the setting of Transport.

The workshop will focus on the elicitation of requirements for Big Data management within the intelligent transport domain.

The workshop will consist of a number of sessions, each with 2 to 3 keynote speakers, followed by an interactive discussion. The sessions will cover:

– BigDataEurope and existing Data-centric initiatives in Transport

– Existing and potential Big Data use-cases and applications in Transport

– Technical requirements for a Big Data Platform in Transport

The activities in the transport domain will focus in particular on streaming sensor network and geo-spatial data integration.

The workshop is the first in a series of three workshops. The future workshops will focus on the alignment and improvement of the specifications, and on the evaluation of project technologies on selected use cases. The next workshops will take place in 2016 and 2017.

The registration link to the Bordeaux Workshop will become available later.

On BigDataEurope:

BigDataEurope aims to develop an adaptable, easy to deploy end use solution, which will allow intererested stakeholder groups to extend their Big Data solutions or introduce Big Data technologies to their business processes. All European stakeholders will be able to use a platform based on a concrete methodology for producing technically sound solutions and maximizing their outreach to their relevant communities.

BigDataEurope will

  • build a network of stakeholders belonging to the European society key sectors including the transport sector, organise relevant workshops and then launch interest groups to help shape requirements and work charters. The workshops will be covering the whole process of data usage starting from data collection, over to processing, storage and visualisation up to the development of data services.
  • design, realise and evaluate a BigDataAggregator Plartform infrastructure that meets the requirements of users from the societal key sectors, minimises the disruption to current workflows, and maximises the opportuntiies to take advantage of the latest European RTD developments.

Stakeholders interested in BigDataEurope can join the discussions in the BDE-Smart, Green and Integrated Transport Community Group
