Welcome to the European Data Forum 2012
The European Data Forum (EDF) 2012 took 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).
The proceedings of the EDF2012 are now available online in CEUR Workshop Proceedings Vol. 877.
