Conference Overview:

Many of today’s most successful enterprises – in business and in science – are built on the collection and analysis of data. The sheer volume and richness of these data sets has stimulated a massive wave of innovation. In addition, this revolution has also sparked important debate on data privacy policies, ethics and governance. The BigData Innovators Gathering (BIG) will bring together academic and industry leaders in the big data space to share the state of the art and its successful application in business. This event will be co-located with WWW conference for the third time. The gathering will consist of keynotes from visionaries in the field, a panel on hot topics, and talks on successes and best practices.

The focus of BIG 2016 is Big Data and the Web.
