Day 2: 16:15-17:30 Second Afternoon Session & Closing

Chair: Nuria De-Lama Sanchez (ATOS)


  1. After such a successful few days the final session of EDF 2013 had a lot to live up to, and it didn't disappoint. Five speakers gave their take on the sessions general theme of 'Open Data', with some of the public open data projects in particular causing much discussion over social media. All that was left then was for the conference chairs to close the forum with thankyous and wishes of good luck for EDF 2014 in Athens before the delegates began to filter out of the old stadium before heading back to their particular corner of Europe filled with fresh ideas on how to tackle the problems and challenges created by big data.
