Data Week 2022 is the spring gathering of the European Big Data and Data Driven AI research and innovation communities.

Data Week also links the communities and their results to the European policies and market needs and brings European initiatives and activities closer to local communities.

This year’s edition is organised in collaboration with CEA and Poznan Super Computing and Networking Center and the event will take place during a period of 2-3 weeks. An online opening event will kick-start the activities on the 24th of May. The event weeks includes local events organized by the BDVA i-Spaces and international online sessions/workshops by the community, running until June 3rd. Finally, Data Week culminates at the 2-day physical event on June 8th and 9th (date and venue to be confirmed), where the major topics discussed throughout the event weeks will be tackled through keynotes, panels, round tables and presentations by experts. The online activities to the Data Week are free of charge, requiring only registration. The physical conference will have an entry fee. Registrations will open in April.

The initial indication of workshops to be selected will be 4 per topic. However, the final number of selected workshops will depend on the demand and quality of the proposals. In case there are multiple similar proposals for addressing the same topic, the Data Week programme committee may propose merging the sessions.
