SURF Research and Innovation Event

Thursday, February 28, 2013 - 08:30 to 16:00
On 28 February 2013 the SURF Research and Innovation Event is being organized in The Hague. Scientific research in the 21st century is inconceivable without ICT resources and methods. During this event, which will take place at the Haagse Hogeschool, researchers will present striking practical examples of the innovative and creative use of ICT.

New insights

SURF offers you two keynote speakers and four tracks which consist of presentations of sixteen researchers coming from diverse research fields. By managing and exploiting (big) data researchers can identify previously unknown links, trends and patterns. The presentations will focus on how multidisciplinary and data intensive research is assisted and strengthened by and with ICT. The research results can lead to new insights and pioneering research questions.

For whom?

The SURF Research and Innovation Event 2013 invites researchers and those supporting them to come and be inspired by research that utilises innovative and creative ICT solutions. The event will display a wide range of best practices taken from a variety of scientific disciplines.


Arnold Smeulders is one of the keynote speakers. Prof. Smeulders, director of COMMIT, recently received the annual Dutch ICT Personality of the Year Award for his prominent role in ICT research in the Netherlands. During the parallel sessions attendees can make a selection out of four tracks with four different sessions each:
• Big Data & eScience
• Collaboration & Polydisciplinarity
• Making Connections
• Citizen Science & Social Media
