The Event

Big Data from Space refers to the massive spatio-temporal Earth and Space observation data collected by a variety of sensors ranging from ground based to space-borne and the synergetic use of data coming from other sources and communities. This domain is currently facing sharp development with numerous new initiatives and breakthroughs from intelligent sensors to data science. These developments are empowering new approaches and applications in various and diverse domains influencing life on earth, from sensing cities, monitoring human settlements and urban areas to climate change and security.

The BiDS’17 Conference is co-organised by the European Space Agency (ESA), the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission, and the European Union Satellite Centre (SatCen). This is the third edition of the BiDS conference series. It will be hosted by the Centre National d’√Čtudes Spatiales (CNES) in Toulouse, one of the key European cities with activities focused on space and aerospace developments and applications.
