The Greek Interoperability Center co-organizes the Samos 2012 Summit on Open Data and Interoperability for Governance, Industry and Society

Date of Event: Monday, July 02, 2012

Despite the current challenging times for most ICT enterprises, researchers and practitioners, the Samos Summit has been organized both in 2010 and 2011 in Samos, Greece with significant success and great visibility. Notably, in 2011 only, the event had more than 120 on-site participants and up to 650 on-line viewers.

This year's Summit is an unprecedented opportunity for all interested stakeholders to brainstorm over the cutting-edge research field of Open Data. At the same time, Samos Summit focuses on innovative trends and developments in other highly technological research fields, such as Enterprise Interoperability and Future Internet Enterprise Systems. Samos Summit aims not only to forward science and research, but also to apply the developments of each one of these research fields for the benefit of Governance, Industry and Society. All participants will have the unique opportunity to attend and participate in a large number. They can discuss and brainstorm over the various challenges of ICT research. The Event has an Open-Host concept: anyone can participate both on-site and on-line through live web streaming via the Samos Summit's channel on Ustream

GIC researchers and scientists have an active role in participating in the event by co-organizing a set of speeches, questions and answers (Q&A) sessions, presentations, workshops and other relevant activities within the framework of various FP7 research projects that will be hosted in the Samos Summit.

The Samos-Summit is hosted and supported by the University of the Aegean. The Event is co-organized by the Decision Support Systems Laboratory of the National Technical University of Athens and the Greek Interoperability Center. Other parties that support the organization of the event are the European Commission (DG Information Society & Media), several EU-FP7 projects, as well as distinct international R&D Centers, such as Google, IBM, Microsoft, INTRASOFT International S.A., etc.
