The popular ISC Cloud and ISC Big Data events are being held this week in Heidelberg, Germany.

ISC Cloud '14 took place on 29-30 September under the tagline 'where engineering and scientific computing meet cloud'. In a recent interview with iSGTW, Michael Resch, director of the High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) in Germany, described the events as being "important for today's knowledge-driven society, in which a constant flow of knowledge from academia to industry is vital."

ISC Big Data '14 is taking place on 1-2 October and focuses on the journey from data to knowledge. Among the many exciting discussions and presentations taking place at the event is a talk by Domenico Talia on the subject of big-data mining. Last month, in an in-depth interview with iSGTW, he cautioned: "Scientific sectors that fail to make full use of the huge amounts of digital data available today risk losing out on the significant opportunities that big data can offer."

Be sure to follow iSGTW on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ for further updates from ISC Big Data '14 under the hashtag #ISCBigData. Updates from ISC Cloud '14 are available under the hashtag #ISCCloud. We'll have a full roundup of these events later this month in iSGTW.
