O'Reilly Strata Conference Charts Data's Future
Strata 2013 Invites Proposals

Sebastopol, CA, August 27, 2012--Data science is the new black, according to Tim O'Reilly in early
2012. While we've all recognized the importance of big data by now, it's time to focus on making it
work for us and on shaping its potential impact on society. At O'Reilly's Strata Conference, the
best minds in data come together to explore the convergence of big data, data science, and
technology, and how we can use these tools to transform our lives. Following its first two sold-out
events, Strata returns to Santa Clara, CA, for the third year on February 26-28, 2013:

Strata has earned a reputation of programs rich with only the best and brightest, and we're always
looking for new expert voices. Chairs Alistair Croll and Edd Dumbill request proposals for Strata
2013 on topics, including but not limited to:

- Real world big data and data science case studies
- Data science: the profession and practice
- Hadoop: best practice, and what's coming next
- Data engineering, infrastructure and databases
- Analytics, predictive modeling and machine learning
- Real time and interactive analytics
- Location: geodata, mapping, mobile and location-based services
- Data driven business: using data and technology to tackle business problems
- Visualization, communication, and storytelling
- Bringing BI into a big data world
- Policy, ethics, and privacy
- Internet of things, ubiquitous computing, and augmented reality
