There are nowadays some irrevocable trends implying that science will open. As regards to data, this implies that sharing instead of owning will become the default. However, there are almost no incentives (but mostly rules & obligations) to make data available and sharable. Seamless facilities for researchers to share data are much needed, and credits need to be attributed when data re-used.Europe is developing a Cloud infrastructure where data can be shared and reused. In order to achieve it, data has to be made FAIR - findable, accessible, interoperable and re-usable. In addition, social data require privacy and security measures.
Big Data can make important contributions to the technical progress in key societal challenges identified by the European Union its "Horizon 2020" and thereby also on OpenScience!This workshop will focus on societal challenge 6 "Europe in changing world - inclusive, innovative and reflective societies", with a main focus of OpenScience & (Big) Data Management by introducing the background, covering the main challenges, and seeking real examples of the potential, challenges and complexities of using big data in our societies.Furthermore the Big Data Integrator (BDI, https://www.big-data-europe.eu/platform/) Platform of the Big Data Europe Project and several demos/pilots from different societal challenges (including SC6) realised on top of it will be presented. The workshop is planned to provide space for questions and discussions with speakers and participants as well as for networking!As the event is embedded as official workshop of the SEMANTiCS2017 conference (https://www.semantics.cc) participants are able to participate also in workshops in the morning of the 11th September and/or join the Platform Linked Data Netherlands MeetUp (PLDN) that also acts as the SEMANTiCS 2017conference evening reception. Registered workshop participants receive also 15% discount on regular SEMANTiCS2017 conference tickets.
- Where are now in setting up a Europe cloud infrastructure?

The main theme of the conference is “Future Technologies for Knowledge Discoveries in Data". This conference aimed to expand its coverage in the areas of Big Data and Data Mining where expert talks, young researcher’s presentations will be placed in every session of the meeting will be inspired and keep up your enthusiasm. We feel our expert Organizing Committee is our major asset, however your presence over the venue will add one more feather to the crown of Data Mining 2017.
Data Mining, the extraction of hidden predictive information from large databases, is a powerful new technology with great potential to help companies focus on the most important information in their data warehouses. Data Mining 2017 is comprised of the following sessions with 25 tracks and 133 sub sessions designed to offer comprehensive sessions that address current issues of Big Data and Data Mining. Data mining tools predict future trends and behaviors, allowing businesses to make proactive, knowledge-driven decisions. The automated, prospective analyses offered by data mining move beyond the analyses of past events provided by retrospective tools typical of decision support systems. Data mining tools can answer business questions that traditionally were too time-consuming to resolve.

20th International Conference on Business Information Systems
Conference theme for 2017: Big Data Analytics for Business and Public Administration
The increasing interest in Big Data resulted in the transformation of science, medicine, healthcare, engineering, business, finance, administration and even society. Big Data Analytics helps organisations process their data in order to identify new opportunities. The results might make the business smarter by enabling faster and better decision making, more efficient operations and higher profits, and also lead to more satisfied customers by gauging their needs.
Big Data Analytics helps to understand and enhance enterprises by linking many fields of information technology and business. Moreover, governments are using Big Data Analytics to gain new insights to change the accepted notions of public service, improve quality of life and set new patient-centric standards for healthcare. Thus, BIS 2017 conference will continue the discussion about Big and Smart Data started on the previous editions. We invite researchers and business practitioners to publish the latest results in Big Data Analytics research. Our goal is to inspire you to think outside the box by sharing theoretical and practical knowledge of ongoing Big Data solutions and technologies.
The BIS conference is a well-respected event joining international researchers to discuss the wide range of the development, implementation, application and improvement of business applications and systems. It is addressed to the scientific community, people involved in the development of business computer applications,consultants helping to properly implement computer technology and applications in the industry.

The new biennial conference series on Language, Data and Knowledge (LDK) aims at bringing together researchers from across disciplines concerned with the acquisition, curation and use of language data in the context of data science and knowledge-based applications. With the advent of the Web and digital technologies, an ever increasing amount of language data is now available across application areas and industry sectors, including social media, digital archives, company records, etc. The efficient and meaningful exploitation of this data in scientific and commercial innovation is at the core of data science research, employing NLP and machine learning methods as well as semantic technologies based on knowledge graphs.

Public and private organizations are entering into the digital world where real time data is available about their operations and operating environments, third-party services offered to increase their performance, and changes in the demands of their customers. Such abundance of data offers new opportunities but also raises new challenges for information systems. The systems have to exploit these data to help (networked-) organizations to decide and conduct appropriate business transformations that are necessary to guarantee their survival in an ever changing world.
The digitalization of the world, the availability of data in real-time and the increasing connections of things, IT-systems, and organizations have significantly increased the role of information systems in the organizations during the last decades. Historically, enabled by databases and file systems technologies supporting data storage and retrieval facilities, information systems have proven instrumental in supporting management issues associated with the optimization and partial automation of processes and document flows in more efficient organizations.
With the internet and web technologies, enhancing the quality of the information, information systems are increasingly regarded as a centre of profit rather than a centre of costs. The transformation of data into information intensive services creating new customer/client value has led organizations to reshape their business value proposition. Architecture of information systems has evolved to enable increasingly interconnected service systems.
