- The sidetrack sessions were a key part of EDF 2013. Taking place at the Canal Cafe adjacent to the main hall in Croke Park the smaller sessions offered a more interactive and informal setting than the large stage in the main hall. As can be seen in some of the pictures below the sessions proved popular with delegates, none more so than the first tutorial entitled 'Introduction to Big Data'. The afternoon sessions on Day 1 featured a discussion on the challenges of data in Earth Sciences as well as a panel on such varying technologies as Linked Data and 'The Anthropology of Big Data'.
