"Big Data" is now being managed by various academic and industry groups.
This workshop is organised by the LHC community and will bring
together a range of different participants from different disciplines
working with Big Data. The aim is to explore the current and future
challenges in data processing, storage, transfer and preservation.
The workshop focuses on the infrastructure, technologies, and
tools, with a view of bringing together communities.
This meeting will seek to achieve the following outputs:
- To build a cross-disciplinary community in Big Data who can exchange knowledge and best practice and work together as this field evolves in the future.
- The meeting discussion will be processed afterwards to form a working document that represent the current state of knowledge and future plans for big data communities.
