Call for Expressions of Interest to host EDF 2015 in Latvia or Luxembourg

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 Open Data, Big
Data, 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 2015.

The European Data Forum follows the country of the EU Presidency:
* EDF 2012 in Copenhagen: http://2012.data-forum.eu
* EDF 2013 in Dublin: http://2013.data-forum.eu
* EDF 2014 in Athens: http://2014.data-forum.eu

In 2015, Latvia and Luxembourg will hold the EU Presidency. Hence, we
are looking for local organizers from these two countries.

The requirements and duties of a local host/organizer include (but are
not limited to):
* Arrangement of an attractive and accessible venue, catering, social
* Outreach and engagement of local communities including politicians
and industry representatives, etc.
* Management of the event budget

As the local host/organizer of the EDF 2015, you would be uniquely
positioned in the European Data community with hopefully many
collaboration opportunities arising from this extremely important
community service.

Interested persons/institutions should submit an EoI including
background information about yourself, your organization, your event
organization experience and your local community outreach
capabilities. Please submit your EoI until 31 February 2014 to

We look very much forward to receiving your Expression of Interest to
become the EDF 2015 local host.

Dieter Fensel and Sören Auer
(On behalf of the European Data Forum Steering Committee)
