Call for Expressions of Interest to host EDF 2016 in United Kingdom or Malta

The European Data Forum, http://data-forum.eu/, is a meeting place for
industry, research, policymakers and community initiatives to discuss
the challenges of the emerging Data Economy (Linked Data, Big
Data, Open Data, respective business models, etc.).

The European Data Forum Steering Committee solicits Expressions of
Interest (EoI) to act as local host/organizer of the European Data Forum
in 2017.

The European Data Forum follows the country of the EU Presidency, i.e.
Copenhagen (2012), Dublin (2013, Athens (2014), Luxembourg (2015 and
Eindhoven (2016) cf. http://data-forum.eu

In 2017, the United Kingdom and Malta will hold the EU Presidency.
Hence, we are looking for local organizers from these two countries.

The requirements and duties of a local organizer include:
* Arrangement of an attractive and accessible venue, catering, social
event/dinner
* Outreach and engagement of local communities including politics and
industry etc.
* Management of the event budget

As the local host/organizer of the EDF 2017, you would be uniquely
positioned in the European Data community with many collaboration
opportunities arising from this extremely important community service.

Interested persons/institutions should submit an EoI including
background information about the key people in the local organization
team, organizational support, event organization experience and local
community outreach capabilities. Please submit your EoI until April 15
2016 to auer@cs.uni-bonn.de.

We look very much forward to receiving your Expression of Interest to
become the EDF 2017 local host.

Sören Auer
on behalf of the European Data Forum Steering Committee
