23 - 25 November
EU Open Data Days - Shaping our future with open data
Data is a key asset for digital transformation. It is a building material for research and innovation, personalised products and services, powerful new technologies and better decision-making. These translate into solutions to societal challenges that can improve and even save people’s lives, as the current pandemic demonstrates. Open data is also freely available to generate value through reuse.
This unique online event will serve as a knowledge hub, bringing the benefits of open data and its reuse to the EU public sector, and through it to people and businesses. Get inspired and discover the latest trends and most innovative solutions!
29 November - 3 December
The European Big Data Value Forum (EBDVF) is the flagship event of the European Big Data and Data-Driven AI Research and Innovation community organised by the BDVA and the European Commission (DG CNECT). The EBDVF brings together industry professionals, business developers, researchers and policy-makers from all over Europe and other regions of the world to advance policy actions in the areas of Data and AI.
EBDVF 2021 theme is “Digital Transformation powered by Data and AI”. We approach the theme from the sectorial and cross-sectorial angle. The programme tracks are structured to cover strategic aspects of technological challenges and impact, discussing the topics of adoption of industrial and trustworthy AI, Data Spaces, Data-Driven business models, standardization, societal impacts and many others. Join the event to get the best insight to European Big Data and AI!
The physical part of the EBDVF 2021 will be hosted in Ljubljana. The local collaborators of EBDVF 2021 are DIH Slovenia, ICT Association of Slovenia (Chamber of Commerce and Industry Slovenia), Jožef Stefan Institute (JSI) and the University of Ljubljana. The central day in the Slovenian capital will kick-start the event by inviting high-level political and industry keynotes to share their views on data and data-driven AI-related policy developments.
CPDP is a non-profit platform originally founded in 2007 by research groups from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the Université de Namur and Tilburg University. The platform was joined in the following years by the Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique and the Fraunhofer Institut für System und Innovationsforschung and has now grown into a platform carried by 20 academic centers of excellence from the EU, the US and beyond. As a world-leading multidisciplinary conference CPDP offers the cutting edge in legal, regulatory, academic and technological development in privacy and data protection. Within an atmosphere of independence and mutual respect, CPDP gathers academics, lawyers, practitioners, policy-makers, industry and civil society from all over the world in Brussels, offering them an arena to exchange ideas and discuss the latest emerging issues and trends. This unique multidisciplinary formula has served to make CPDP one of the leading data protection and privacy conferences in Europe and around the world.
A new edition of the Internet Governance Forum - IGF Spain will be held on November 16 and 17 in a hybrid format. On this occasion, the IGF Spain will focus on topics such as digital services and their European regulation, environmental sustainability, the digital divide, 5G networks, artificial intelligence, data governance, digital rights, content regulation and digital disconnection, among others.
If last year the IGF was focused on the necessary progress of digital inclusion and the reduction of digital divides to begin to build the recovery of a post-pandemic world, this time it will be no less, since the motto of the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) "Internet unites us" will be the new leitmotiv.
Data Spaces Dialogue | Mobility Data Spaces in the GAIA-X Context
Mobility, logistics, smart cities – how do they interact? Mobility moves people and is a prerequisite for logistics to move goods. Mobility takes place in urban areas. But that’s not all. Our mobile life revolves around data, contextual information that describes, movement data, weather data, about what is happening around us, where, when and why. How can we use this data? With Mobility Data Spaces! Mobility Data Spaces make the right data available to the right people at the right time. They create intelligent solutions for complex urban mobility problems.
In the Data Spaces Dialogue, we provide a first look at real Mobility Data Spaces. We talk about technical interaction and business benefit aspects. And we put Mobility Data Spaces into the GAIA-X context. In addition, we introduce something. What? We’re not revealing that yet.
This year’s Summit will showcase how data and services are shared in the trusting environment of the Gaia-X ecosystem, bringing in consistent business value in the digital sector. Join this year’s virtual event, featuring Gaia-X activities across Europe! This year’s hybrid event holds an extensive audience participation - all at the right place and time.
5 - 10 September
The 2021 IEEE World Congress on Services will be held as an all-online virtual event. The Congress is solely sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society under the auspice of the Technical Committee on Services Computing (TCSVC). The scope of the Congress will cover all current or emerging aspects of services computing and applications. Centered around services computing, it covers various systems and networking research pertaining to cloud, edge and Internet-of-Things (IoT), as well as technologies for intelligent computing, learning, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and blockchain applications, addressing critical issues such as knowledge network, high performance, security, privacy, dependability, trustworthiness, and cost-effectiveness in the cloud. Particularly, 2021 Congress will welcome papers on the impact of COVID-19 on cloud services and corresponding infrastructure. In addition to colocated theme-topic conferences, the Congress will also include symposia and workshops supporting deep-dive discussions on emerging important topics, and complement the Congress program with industry and application presentations and panels. Authors are invited to prepare early and submit original papers to IEEE CLOUD conference, symposia, and workshops at www.easychair.org. All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers. Accepted and presented papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press.

New Cases & Faces Delivering Value from Data & AI
The DATA festival #online returns.
In September 2021 we want to explore again how Data & AI bring value to business.
The DATA festival #online in March already showed us numeral use cases, best practices and discussions on which success factors and challenges companies now need to consider in order for #data & #AI to bring real benefits. You can watch the sessions on demand here.
Now we´re up to more!
No pandemic can stop us bringing together the #DATA & #AI community – we’re inviting you to join us for the third #DATAfestivalonline on September 15-16th 2021!

The annual Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS) brings together privacy experts from around the world to present and discuss recent advances and new perspectives on research in privacy technologies. PETS/PoPETs is the premier venue for novel applied and/or theoretical research into the design, analysis, experimentation, or fielding of privacy-enhancing technologies.
Submitted papers undergo a journal-style reviewing process and accepted papers are published in the journal Proceedings on Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PoPETs). PoPETs, a scholarly, open access journal for timely research papers on privacy, has been established as a way to improve reviewing and publication quality while retaining the highly successful PETS community event. PoPETs is published by Sciendo, part of De Gruyter, which has over 260 years of publishing history. PoPETs does not have article processing charges (APCs) or article submission charges
