The capacity and capability to process big data and convert them to smart data generate tremendous potential for creating value. It is as fact that big data can trigger new innovative business models and products. At the same time, the smart processing of data creates vast opportunities for innovation and growth, while raising questions that need to be addressed, such as how can vast data amounts be processed efficiently and effectively, how relevant data processing procedures conform to prevailing legal norms, how can data classified as sensitive best be processed, when is it imperative to anonymize personal data etc.
At this year´s Smart Data Conference we will address a wide range of data aspects related to technology, economy and to the legal system in terms of sensitive data protection and security solutions.

The European Population Neuroscience symposium is a Satellite Event of the FENS Forum 2016. The symposium is organized by the Danish Research Centre for Magnetic Resonance (DRCMR; part of Regionhovedstaden - Capital Region of Denmark - in collaboration with CreoDK and the European Brain Council (EBC).
Date and venue: July 1st 2016, 8.30 AM-4.30 PM. DGI-byen, Tietgensgade 65, 1704 Copenhagen V, Denmark.
The symposium addresses key scientific challenges of a European Population Neuroscience Strategy. The main goal of such a strategy is to model the often subtle but decisive interplay of multidimensional factors across the life span in large European cohorts representative of general populations, thereby capturing differences in e.g. genetic makeup, age and sex distributions, social-economic and health status, and culture, in order to predict physical (i.e. body) and mental and cognitive (i.e. brain) health and illness, resilience and potential.
Central topics include (1) the relationship between genes (Genome) and exposures (Envirome; e.g. body and environment) shaping brain outcomes (Phenome; e.g. cognition, behavior and structural and functional in vivo brain measures), (2) strategies to ensure that cohorts are representative of populations, (3) mobile sensing technologies for an ecological sampling of physical and environmental variables, (4) large-scale infrastructures for integrating, sharing and exploiting huge amounts of prospective multidimensional data in a secure manner, and (5) analytical and modeling strategies and approaches to analyze and exploit complex multimodal, multidimensional and multisite prospective data.
Participation is free of charge, but registration is mandatory. Please visit our FENS forum satellite symposium webpage for the program and registration.
The organizing committee: Prof. Hartwig Siebner (DRCMR), Prof. Tomas Paus (Rotman Research Institute and University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada) and Prof. Thomas Werge (Mental Health Centre Sct. Hans, Capital Region of Denmark, Denmark)
