    The Smart Data Innovation Lab is among the first five Big Data Value Innovation Spaces in the EU.

    The Big Data Value Association (BDVA) granted a label to SDIL as an European Innovation Space (i-Space) acknowledging SDIL efforts to drive forward Big Data adoption across all domains within European industry.

    This label awards SDIL for its outstanding infrastructure, Quality of Services, Projects and Impact to Ecosystem. All these topics were evaluated according to a rigid criterion catalogue for the label grant, which awarded 5 data centers across Europe.

    SDIL received a trophy-award at the BDVA i-Space Label Ceremony during the Big Data Value Association Summit in Valencia on 30th November 2016.

    Within the first conference on Smart Data Innovation, the Smart Data Innovation Lab (SDIL) and its Data Innovation Communities has presented their work and provide a hands-on experience of the SDIL Platform.

    It is now 2 years since the Smart Data Innovation Lab was launched. An initiative of the national IT summit of the Federal Government has now become a central starting point for researchers and developers from industry and research with the help of members and partners from industry and research as well as with the support of the BMBF. In the meantime, “a number of projects are counting on the free and uncomplicatedly provided SDIL smart data hardware and software, and a whole community has emerged especially around the middle class.

    I would therefore like to invite you to the first conference on “Smart Data Innovation” and the Smart Data Innovation Lab. The conference is designed to accelerate the cooperation between business, government and research in the field of big data and smart data technologies.

    Enclose the preliminary program (https://indico.scc.kit.edu/indico/event/248/timetable/#20161013.detailed) with:

    • Lectures on many concrete SmartData projects, ecosystems and technologies (Thursday morning),

    • practical tutorials, where you can experiment on the systems yourself (Thursday afternoon),

    • Workshops of the Data Innovation Communities (Wednesday afternoon).

    The conference will take place at the Steinbuch Center for Computing (SCC) on the north campus of KIT. Registration is mandatory to organize access and transfer. At the SCC, the protected physical computing infrastructure of the SDIL and other large computers can also be viewed on the site of the former Karlsruhe Research Center.
