Nach der positiven Rückmeldung zum Big Data in Business Workshop 2015 haben wir uns entschieden den Workshop als 2-Tages Veranstaltung zu wiederholen . Der Big Data in Business Workshop ermöglicht Vertretern regionaler und international agierender Unternehmen sowie Wissenschaftlern aus der Informatik einen praxisbezogenen fachlichen Austausch.

 

Die TU Dresden und die Uni Leipzig bieten für das Sommersemester 2017 eine gemeinsame Big Data Ringvorlesung an. Einschreibung läuft!

Ziel der Ringvorlesung ist den Teilnehmern einen Überblick über aktuelle Anforderungen und Lösungen zu Big Data Technologien und Anwendungen zu geben. Die Schwerpunkte liegen dabei in den im Big Data-Kompetenzzentrum ScaDS (Competence Center for Scalable Data Services and Solutions) Dresden/Leipzig bearbeiteten Gebieten. Referenten sind an ScaDS Dresden/Leipzig aktiv beteiligte Professoren (principal investigators). 

Die Veranstaltung findet in Blöcken von je 2 Vorträgen/Vorlesungen (jeweils etwa 1 h) abwechselnd an der Universität Leipzig und an der TU Dresden statt. Die Vorträge werden per Video-Streaming an den jeweils anderen Standort übertragen. 

Die Veranstaltung richtet sich an Studierende der Bachelor- und Masterstudiengänge der Informatik, Doktoranden und alle Interessenten.  Die Abrechnungsmodalitäten für Studierende werden standort-spezifisch gemäß den Rahmenbedingungen der jeweiligen Studiengänge geregelt. Weitere Informationen finden Sie hier.

Wir laden Sie herzlich zu einem sehr spannenden Vortrag von Herrn Jan Aerts von der KU Leuven im Rahmen unseres ScaDS-Kolloquiums ein.

Abstract:
With datasets becoming more and more complex, generic representations often cannot convey the richness hidden inside them anymore which can result in patterns being missed and insights that stay just across the horizon. This talk will highlight the reasons why we need advanced data visualization, illustrate the strengths and weaknesses of visualization, and explore ways of thinking systematically about the topic.

Short biography of Jan Aerts:

Jan Aerts has a background in genetics and genomics, and performed his doctoral research at the University of Wageningen (Netherlands) on the Chicken Genome Sequencing Project. He then moved to Scotland to work as a postdoctoral researcher at the Roslin Institute on the Cow Genome Sequencing Project. Next, he continued his research at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute near Cambridge (UK) focusing on structural variation in the human and other primate genomes. At his return to Belgium in 2010, he shifted focus to data visualization and visual analytics, with the aim of finding interesting questions in large datasets (big data). His main research topics revolve around visual design, interaction design, and (human and computational) scalability. He collects inspiration for (both good and bad) visualizations on his pinterest board.

Jan Aerts is on the organizing committees of BioVis and Beyond The Genome, and has chaired visualization-related sessions at conferences including VIZBI, the Bioinformatics Open Source Conference BOSC and EuroVis/VMLS. He is also Associate Editor for the BioMedCentral Thematic Series on Biological Data Visualization, and academic editor for PLoS One. He is member of the Young Academy – Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Sciences and the Arts.

Dresden Computer Graphics and Visualization Group wins IEEE SciVis Contest 2016

Each year the so called SciVis Contest takes place at the renowned international conference for visualization, the IEEE VIS. In 2016, the staff of the Computer Graphics and Visualisation Group of the TU Dresden, together with colleagues from the Visualization Research Centre of the University of Stuttgart, have won the contest.

With the SciVis Contest the visualization community can confront themselves with challenging visual analysis tasks on real data scenarios. The 2016's contest asked questions about large ensemble data sets of chemical processes of salt dissolution, namely the appearance and influence of viscous fingers. The entry by TU Dresden was deemed being the most wholesome and versatile solution, and thus gained the winning edge over its competitors.

ScaDS Dresden/Leipzig at CeBIT 2017

Also this year, ScaDS Dresden/Leipzig will continue to present Big Data related research topics at the IT conference and exhibition CeBIT from 20 - 24 March 2017 in Hannover. On the shared booth together with other universities of the Free State of Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and the Free State of Thuringia we will be part of the TU Dresden exhibit and inform the public in particular about recent developments in Big Data application areas. ScaDS Dresden/Leipzig presentations will be accompanied with other research topics form the Center of Informations Services and High Performance Computing (ZIH) of the TU Dresden, the 5G Lab and the Cluster of Excellence Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed).

In particular, ScaDS Dresden/Leipzig and ZIH will inform the interested public about highlights in its research activities, including amongst others:

  • Big Data and data intensive computing
  • Data analytics and data life cycle management
  • High Performance Computing, Distributed and Cloud Computing
  • Scalable software tools for application support and energy efficient computing

All visitors and interested attendees of the exhibit are very welcome to visit our boot at Hall 6, Booth B24 in the research and innovation hall of the CeBIT 2017 (see convention center map for further details)

 

Impressions from the past

In the past we had lively discussions about actual research topics on our booth with visitors of the CeBIT conference and exhibition from media, politics and the general public.

Dr. René Jäkel, management director of ScaDS Dresden/Leipzig, informs EU politician Reinhard Bütikofer about energy efficient computing and service-oriented research in the area of Big Data on CeBIT 2015.

 

Also on CeBIT 2015 we had prominent visit of our Minister President of the Free State of Saxony Stanislaw Tillich, who was interested in the new area of Big Data research.
