Call for Participation
1st International SoBigData Workshop - in conjunction with TPDL 2016

5 September 2016
Hannover, Germany

One of the most pressing and fascinating challenges scientists face today, is understanding the complexity of our globally interconnected society. The big data arising from the digital breadcrumbs of human activities promise to let us scrutinize the ground truth of individual and collective behaviour at an unprecedented detail and scale. There is an urgent need to harness these opportunities for scientific advancement and for the social good. SoBigData proposes to create the Social Mining & Big Data Ecosystem: a research infrastructure (RI) providing an integrated ecosystem for ethic-sensitive scientific discoveries and advanced applications of social data mining on the various dimensions of social life The aim of the workshop is to bring together communities involved in different aspects of Social Big Data research: researchers, policy makers, data provider, data scientists, etc. to present societal challenges and discuss potential big data solutions as they are currently developed in SoBigData.

About Hannover
Hannover is a pleasant, medium-sized city (516.000 inhabitants) in the northern part of Germany. The city is famous for its fairs, most importantly the annual CeBIT fair at which the latest technologies are presented. In 2000 the World Fair (Expo 2000) took place in Hannover. Historically, the city boasts to be the root of the Hanover line of the English royal family. At first sight, Hannover is a modest non-spectacular city; however, the city has many hidden beauties, including the historical Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen, the new and old City Halls and the Eilenriede - Europe's largest city forest.
