Smart Data Forum

25-26 June 2014, Nice, France

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

The exponential growth in the volume of personal and professional data raises new challenges. The digital deluge will lead to radically different patterns of behavior on the part of individuals and corporations, revolutionizing service delivery and value creation. Properly processed and analyzed, this data can become “Smart Data”.

Smart Data 2014 is positioned as a think tank for the monetization of digital assets, delivering: • new viewpoints for project initiators in corporate and governmental environments • expert guidance on the protection and analysis of big data • an overview of best practices and the latest solutions.


Transfigurations: Curatorial and Artistic Research in an Age of Migrations

19-26 June 2014, MACBA - Capella, Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

Within the framework of MeLa Research Field 04, the fieldwork developed by the Royal College of Art into curatorial and artistic research will culminate in the exhibition “Transfigurations: Curatorial and artistic research in an age of migrations”.

How are globalisation, digital media and changing patterns of migration affecting our understanding and experience of the contemporary work of art, and how are contemporary artists engaging with curators to think about the condition of the contemporary through their work, its display and collection? How are curators working with new forms of artistic production, particularly ‘immaterial’ works of art, that fall outside conventional forms of display, collection and archive?

 

This research exhibition brings together a rich group of international artists and curators:

• MACBA in Barcelona with curator Bartomeu Marí and artist Lawrence Abu-Hamdan
• Bétonsalon in Paris with curator Mélanie Bouteloup and artist Camille Henrot
• Whitechapel Gallery in London with curator Sofia Victorino and artist Kader Attia
• Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam with curators Jelle Bouwhuis / Kerstin Winking and artist Quinsy Gario
• Royal College of Art in London with Paul Goodwin and artist Leo Asemota

In particular, the research exhibition reflects on the challenges and opportunities of curatorial and artistic research in the 21st century, and the rise of new forms of practice such as performance, sound, and video which are both expanding the range of artists’ interests and challenging conventional ideas of the ‘art object’ in museums and galleries. Following what has been described as ‘the curatorial turn’ and ‘the educational turn’ the exhibition considers how complex the interface is between issues of representation, globalisation, collection and object, curating, programming, audiences, and technology.


Energy Systems Integration – a global innovation challenge

25 June 2014, Brussels

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

Our energy system is very complex. It includes not only renewable, nuclear, and fossil energy sources but also electrical, thermal, and fuel energy pathways that convert, store and deliver energy services at different physical scales.

The integration of various energy sources and vectors in the energy system is a practical challenge with important contributions to security of supply.

The objective of the workshop is to highlight the complementarity of this research area compared with smart grids and storage. It also aims at exploring the added value of the cooperation with international partners.

Do not forget to register!

Please note the time: 16.45-18:30


MILESCURE-2050 Energy Day on “Transition towards low carbon energy society”

In the frame of the EU sustainable energy week (23-27 June 2014) the MILESECURE-2050 project presented its preliminary results to 60 EU decision-makers and stakeholders on 25 June 2014 at ENEA Brussels headquarter.

Both techno-economic and socio-cultural aspects of low carbon society and EU energy security of supply were addressed using quantitative and qualitative approaches. They dealt with trends and scenarios as well as with the human factor in energy transition.
