The Emerging Big Data Technologies Summit 2016 (EBDTS'16) brings together the big data science and technologies communities from around the globe, from the current world-leaders in big data research and industry to the future generations. It is an event not to be missed if you want to keep abreast of the latest advances and foster innovations in big data developments. Wide range of topics EBDTS' 16 will cover all areas of big data science, engineering and technologies from the latest innovations in algorithms, implementations, new software and applications to fields such as computer science, finance, medicine, science & engineering, social media and mining. The EBDTS'16 brings industry, academics and government bodies on 3 Panel Discussions: Digital Health - Digital and precision medicine and therapeutics - Social health platforms - Cross platform and Device data aggregation - Health data and analytics platforms - Genomics data and analytics Digital Business - real time and predictive business analytics - cloud and finance for driving operational insights and decisions - data and cloud based business platforms - digitization of the supply chain in business networks and commerce - analytics and automation as digital business enablers Digital Cities - digital transportation - digital buildings - digital natural resources (e.g. water, energy) - digital administration and education - city planning Large number of oral presentations To ensure every researcher from any location in the world, from students to established group leaders, has an opportunity to present their newest study at the EBDTS'16, the program will include a large number of oral presentations selected from submitted abstracts, distributed in parallel mini-symposia. Each poster presenter will have a chance to give a one-minute flash talk to attract the summit participants to their poster. Researchers – industries - investors interactions EBDTS’16 will provide opportunities for researchers, relevant industries and investors to network in formal and informal contexts. There will be many talks given by industry representatives and panel discussions will take place throughout the summit. Researchers can give five minutes pitches (selected from submitted pitch abstract) to a panel of industries and investors. This will be followed by a cocktail networking event where researchers, industry representatives and investors can have informal discussions. Grants and awards To facilitate delegate attendance, EBDTS'16 will offer grants and awards directed to researchers from developing countries, students and early career researchers and female delegates with young children and require childcare. Magnificent location The summit will be held in the heart of metropolitan Melbourne, the most liveable city in the world. It is a vibrant place with exquisite facilities and beautiful natural surroundings. Join the 4D Mapper and HARRIS Challenge: 4D Mapper is offering $1000 as credit for 10 researchers ($100 each) to use 4D Mapper platform and get insights into their data. The students/researchers must present their results/proof of concepts obtained using 4D mapper at the ESTS16.org for a chance to win a prize of up to $2000 and/or possible collaboration with 4D Mapper company. The interested participants will receive login details to start their projects. To start your project contact Alexe Bojovschi at firstname.lastname@example.org .
