Thematic sessions

The symposium will feature 5 thematic sessions showcasing world-class data-driven and compute-intensive research in different fields:

  • Internet of Things
  • Energy Science
  • Natural Language
  • Brain, Cognition and Behavior 
  • Future of Machine Learning 

The thematic sessions are organized in partnership with SURFnet, NWO-Shell programme, CLARIAH, NeurolabNL and Commit2Data.


Digital technology cross-cuts all scientific domains. Our understanding of the universe, dealing with the challenges of climate change and discovering new energy sources, analyzing human behavior, or tracking athletes' performances are just a couple of areas where digital technology is being used to enhance scientific research.

For whom?

The cross-cutting aspect means that technologies used in one field can be applicable across other fields. This annual symposium is an opportunity for anyone working in academia or industry with an interest in digital technology and scientific research. It is thé place to meet researchers, students, data scientists, scientific administrators, CIOs and CTOs dealing with the challenges and potential of digital technologies; from the humanities to physics and beyond.
