SBDI Days: Towards Data-Driven Ecology

Start: January 24th, 2024

End: January 25th, 2024

The SBDI consortium extends a warm invitation to the entire scientific community passionate about data-driven research. Join them at the Swedish Museum of Natural History in Stockholm for a two-day event focused on reshaping ecology research through the power of big data.

Unlocking the Potential of Big Data in Ecology: Ecology research stands at the cusp of a profound transformation with the impending 'data deluge.' While the abundance of biodiversity and environmental data opens unprecedented opportunities, it also presents challenges for researchers in biodiversity, ecology, conservation biology, and systematics.

Why Attend? This symposium offers a unique platform for the Swedish biodiversity research community to come together, collaborate, and address the challenges brought by the data revolution. Whether you are an experienced researcher or a curious mind, this event is tailored for everyone interested in harnessing the upcoming big data wave.

Symposium Highlights:

  • Big Data in Macroecology: Explore the potential of big data in reshaping macroecology research.
  • Challenges in Biodiversity Data Research: Navigate the hurdles and opportunities presented by vast biodiversity datasets.
  • Machine Learning and AI in Conservation: Discover applications of cutting-edge technology in conservation efforts.
  • Digital Twins for Ecosystems: Gain insights into perspectives on digital twins for understanding ecosystems.
  • Scaling up DNA-Based Ecology Research: Explore advancements in scaling up ecology research through DNA data.

Event Details:

  • Host: Swedish Biodiversity Data Infrastructure (SBDI)
  • Date: January 24th-25th, 2024
  • Venue: Swedish Museum of Natural History, Stockholm

What to Expect:

  • Keynotes and Presentations

AquaINFRA Participation: We are thrilled to announce Arne Jørgen Berre (SINTEF Digital, Smart Data group in Sustainable Communication Technologies department and, an AquaINFRA partner, as an invited keynote speaker. Arne, responsible for digital twins and EOSC interoperability in the AquaINFRA EOSC project, will present "Ecosystem Digital Twin Pipelines with Big Data and AI." This talk will delve into a standards-based framework, drawing insights from European projects like DTO-BioFlow, BioDT, Destination Earth/DestinE, and Iliad/EDITO Digital Twins of the Ocean, promising a rich tapestry of knowledge.
