The International Conference on Open and Big Data (OBD 2015)

24-26 August 2015, Rome, Italy


Data has become a key asset in modern societies, economies, and 
governmental organizations. Big Data encompasses various kinds of 
complex and large scale information that are beyond the processing 
capabilities of conventional software and databases. Open Data on the 
other hand can make Big Data more useful and widely accessible. The 
combination of Open and Big data can benefit users, developers, 
companies and various kinds of organizations to carry out useful

solve complex problems that can help societies and economies and speed 
up innovations.
