Location:
Sofitel Europe, Place Jourdan 1, Brussels
24 April 2013
Keynote speech by Michail Bletsas, MIT Media Lab

The European Committee for Interoperable Systems (ecis.eu) cordially invites you to a symposium about the challenges government faces in fostering a competitive and innovative environment for cloud computing, to benefit consumers and businesses.

The symposium features the Director of Computing of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (“MIT”) Media Lab, Michail Bletsas. The name “cloud” obscures a complex collection of technologies, along with the problems they raise for privacy, security, interoperability and data portability. Bletsas will help untangle the issues and clarify how we can best take advantage of this emerging sector. In addition, two panels will look at the issues.
