The first day of the Summit (Conference, 26 June) will include keynotes, speeches and discussion panels focused on how Data, AI and Privacy should be used jointly to build a desirable future for citizen and economic actors with return on experience from nation decision support for governance, and from the new business model of Telecom and Smart cities and Transport pilots It will also include a whole session dedicated to Data Driven AI, with an exclusive deep dive on the yet to be released BDVA Strategic Research and innovation Agenda on Artificial Intelligence and will introduce the way on how forthcoming EU initiatives will support the community to create value from AI capabilities. Finally, the day will draw some perspectives on how could Quantum Computing be good for Big Data and AI and will conclude with the best story award and the social event in the floating art gallery NOASS.

The next two days (Meetup, 27th-28th June) will be devoted to parallel workshops by the BDV PPP community on different topics of interest (B2B Manufacturing Industry Data Spaces, Data-driven business models, 

Data Benchmarking, Federation of Data Services, Big Data for NLP, Policy4data, etc.), the BDVA General Assembly and the Big Data Value PPP Steering Committee.

While the general assembly of BDVA will take place, we dedicate some space for a new innovative session called Bring your own topic: the principle is as follow, before or after the event you tweet the topic title with the tags #arroba#BDVA_PPP #byot and the topics with the more like will get a flag on a table, you are ready to present, brainstorm, discuss around the table.

The event will also include an exhibition area where several BDV PPP projects will showcase their most relevant results. This will be the last opportunity to learn about some projects that are finishing this year.
