COM.BigData 2014 is the International Summit on Big Data Computing. The summit offers a timely venue for researchers, government decision-makers, and industry partners to present and discuss their latest insights, challenges, and results in big data computing.
Big data provides an opportunity to find insight in new and emerging types of information constructions. How will you take advantage of this opportunity? Big Data definitely presents a number of challenges related to its complexity, heterogeneity, and immensity. Many of these novel challenges necessitate rethinking various aspects of information processing philosophy, data management platforms, and computing methodologies in science, engineering, medicine, and business.
This year, it features a very exciting event program on Big Data, including leading-edge keynotes, panels, tech shows, workshops, federal lab tours, etc. from governments, industries, and academia. There will be a great opportunity for everyone to learn the latest innovation, trends, and interrelation, vision, future impacts and challenges, and new perspectives from other world-class leaders of all three sides at the event.
In particular, here is a key list of the Big Data sessions:
1) Federal Big Data Working Group Keynote: The Federal Big Data Initiative: Where it has been and where it is going
2) Northrop Grumman Keynote: Big Data - A System Integrator's Perspective

This 3-day application training will introduce attendees to the fundamental, core theoretical and technical concepts of the eCognition software, including project setup, segmentation, classification and other essential processing procedures required for the generation of results. The training is intended for eCognition beginners or customers looking to refresh their knowledgebase in the core functionality and features of Trimble’s eCognition software.
To register for the courses, please visit http://www.trimblelms.com. You can find the courses by clicking “Application” training and searching for “eCognition.”
If you would like more information before registering, please contact Cliff Holle (Cliff_Holle@trimble.com).
The Summer Institute of Geospatial Technology is designed for the adult professional looking to sharpen their technical skills. Hosted by Washington College in the scenic colonial town of Chestertown, Maryland, our location offers a chance for you to escape from your busy schedule and focus on learning. All workshops are being taught by experienced geospatial professionals who are experts in their fields. Workshops costs are extremely competitive, and discounts are offered for early registration. Members of Maryland law enforcement agencies or criminal justice organizations may sign up for workshops related to crime analysis at no cost. For those whose organizational budgets offer no funding for professional development, we may also be able to offer some scholarship support.
