This conference is organized by PT-MATHS-IN, the Portuguese representative of the European Service Network of Mathematics for Industry and Innovation (EU-MATHS-IN), whose goal is to leverage the impact of Mathematics in Industry, promoting information exchange and developing partnerships between these two groups. EU-MATHS-IN is now a European network of 14 countries national consortiums.
Portugal has since long been developing activities in collaboration with EU-MATHS-IN and has recently been formally vested as a full member. This conference in BIG DATA serves as a launching event of the Portuguese Network and so your involvement is also a great contribution for the development of our activity. PT-MATHS-IN is a non-profitable organization structured as a network of R&D mathematical centers of several universities in Portugal.
Big Data is one of the most interesting and active areas nowadays, full of potential challenging subjects for mathematical researchers. The conference will be held in Porto, in June 2, 2017, prestigiously elected as the Best European Destination 2017 and so we hope it would be also an enjoyable occasion for you.
