The 7th EMB Forum aims to foster discussion and collaboration between diverse stakeholders to work towards solutions enabling the development of big data to support marine science. Talks and panel discussions will include representatives from science, industry, policy, governance, data services and NGOs. Key challenges and recommendations will be discussed relating to societal issues including sustainable fisheries and aquaculture, climate change and the oceans, and ocean observations. Cross-cutting issues of data acquisition, data handling and management, service interoperability, data accessibility, computing infrastructure, data sharing, big data analytics, training networks and collaboration will be explored.
