Utilizing Linked Data and Big Data for organisational and enterprise purposes will be one of the next big challenges in the evolution of the web. Big Data takes account of the fact that new techniques and technologies are needed for the sustainable and socially balanced exploitation of huge data pools. The Linked Data paradigm is one approach to coping with Big Data, as it advances the hypertext principle from a web of documents to a web of rich data.

It's very promising to combine both worlds: In our meetup, we will discuss how Big Data & Linked Data technologies could become a perfect match.

On the eve of SEMANTiCS conference, this meetup gathers experts on Big and Linked Data to discuss the future agenda on research and implementation of a joint technology development.
