You are cordially invited to participate in the NIST Big Data Workshop to be held on September 30, 2013 in Gaithersburg, Maryland, NIST campus. The workshop is free and open to the public. The information you.ll need for attending this workshop can be found at the bottom of this message.
This workshop enables public interaction with the NIST Big Data Public Working Group, established in June 19, 2013, and members from industry, academia, and government with the objective of developing a Big Data Technology Roadmap which will define and prioritize requirements for interoperability, portability, reusability, and extensibility of big data source, analytic techniques, technology infrastructure, and data usage in order to support secure and effective adoption of Big Data. The NBD-PWG scope includes:
The focus of the NIST Big Data Public Working Group (NBD-PWG) is to form a community of interest from industry, academia, and government, with the goal of developing a consensus definitions, taxonomies, reference architectures, and technology roadmaps. The aim is to create vendor-neutral, technology and infrastructure agnostic deliverables to enable Big Data stakeholders to pick-and-choose best analytics tools for their processing and visualization requirements on the most suitable computing platforms and clusters while allowing value-added from Big Data service providers and flow of data between the stakeholders in a cohesive and secure manner.
Deliverables by September 27, 2013
- Produce a working draft for Big Data Definitions
- Produce a working draft for Big Data Taxonomies
- Produce a working draft for Big Data Requirements
- Produce a working draft for Big Data Security and Privacy Requirements
- Produce a white paper for Big Data Reference Architectures Survey
- Produce a working draft for Big Data Reference Architectures
- Produce a working draft for Big Data Security and Privacy Reference Architectures
- Produce a working draft for Big Data Technology Roadmap
Due to time constraints, the NBD-PWG formed five subgroups: Definitions and Taxonomies, Requirements and Use Cases, Security and Privacy, Reference Architecture, and Technology Roadmap, with the goal of accomplishing the above deliverables. After many weekly of teleconferencing sessions, the subgroups will be presenting their results for public comments and discussion.
The workshop format will include:
Welcome address from NIST leadership
AM: presentation and discussion of all deliverables
PM: subgroup breakout sessions to incorporate feedback and set next steps
PM: announce NBD-PWG next steps
Participants: The NIST Big Data Workshop is open to everyone. We hope to bring together stakeholder communities across industry, academia, and government sectors representing all of those with interest in Big Data applications, techniques, technologies, and infrastructures. The NBD-WG needs your input to further develop the Big Data technology roadmap so please join us and contribute your ideas and insights.
Registration is free but required and the cut-off date is September 23, 2013:
