In December, the Post Summit Paper by Christian Bizer, Peter Boncz, Michael Brodie and Orri Erling has been published in the newest volume of SIGMOD Record.

The report results from discussions held at 2011 STI International Semantic Summit within a group of twenty-five researchers, on the meaningful use of Big Data. The four authors each put forward a challenge: multi-disciplinary Big Data integration, the Billion Triple Challenge from the Semantic Web community, getting value out of government linked open data, and integrating linked data in regular DBMSs.

The EU's research for the benefit of SMEs call for project proposals takes place annually and in 2010 offered a budget of €189.000.000 for new researcher-SME collaborations around innovative, commercially marketable research and development.

The call foresees projects in which small groups of innovative SMEs subcontract work to research and development performers in order to solve technological problems and acquire technology know-how. As a result, SME participants should be enabled to develop new or improved products, systems, processes or services.
