Cloudscape Brazil 2015, taking place on 1-2 December at the Brazilian Center for Research in Physics (CBPF), Botafogo in Rio de Janeiro, is a 2-day workshop giving public entitites and companies essential and unique insights into what cloud services means for their organisation today.
The event showcases an impressive array of cloud user stories, from cutting-edge research in the life sciences to newcomers competing with established players. A strong focus is on how cloud federated infrastructures are enabling researchers to tackle major societal challenges, from neglected diseases and cardio-vascular diseases affecting mostly poor groups to understanding the role of biodiversity ecosystems in buffering climate change. The resulting services simply would not be possible without international co-operation.
The number of start-ups in both Brazil and Europe is rising rapidly, bringing innovation and growth prospects. The cloud plays a big role here as it lowers the entry barrier to almost every sector. Cloudscape Brazil 2015 offers a forum for start-ups and looks at how new opportunities can help take outstanding research results to market.
Cloudscape Brazil also zooms in on European and Brazilian co-operation priorities, cloud computing and big data strategies with insights from policy makers in both regions.
