EIT ICT Labs and Cloudberry Science & Innovation days

EIT ICT Labs and Cloudberry Datacenters welcome you to the city of Luleå and Luleå University of Technology, in the north of Sweden, for a two day program in June 4-5, 2014, focussing on Cloud and Big Data.

North Sweden offers a uniquely reliable and competitive environment for green datacenters. The region is instrumented by renewable energy, redundant broadband infrastructure, cool air and educated people. With headquarter in this dynamic region, Cloudberry is a research and innovation initiative that supports, coordinates and integrates research, innovation, design and education activities in the area of green datacenters and cloud computing. EIT ICT Labs partners, SICS and Luleå University of Technology, are members of Cloudberry.

Welcome to come and listen to and discuss current research and innovations in the areas of Cloud, Big Data, Future Networking, Data Centers and related topics. This event will give you an increased knowledge on the research and innovation front and on the on-going Cloudberry pilots and new multidisciplinary pilot projects. Moreover, it will encourage collaboration within EIT ICT Labs thematic groups and give an opportunity to discuss and create joint carrier projects, such as within Horizon2020. This event will also prepare Datacenters as an area in EIT ICT Labs.

The entire two day event is free. Sign up to the left before May 23.
