CNECT EU CODE WEEK
Venue: 
Philippe Le Bon, Brussels
Contact: 
cnect-eu-code-week@ec.europa.eu

Since its beginnings in 2013 the Code Week EU has grown exponentially. In 2015 over half a million people in 46 countries participated in over 7,000 events, learning to program and cooperate in a digital environment. Also, born in the EU, the Code Week went global. In 2015 the Africa Code Week was created; also we now have ambassadors in countries like China and the US. This European initiative, aiming at fostering coding skills, digital literacy and tech-enabled collaboration is carried out by a network of passionate volunteers – the EU Code Week Ambassadors. Code Week brings together people from all walks of life – programmers and tech entrepreneurs, teachers, policy makers, big tech industry players – and most importantly – kids and young people.

The objective of the session

We are all very excited about the 4th edition of Code Week EU and are working towards reaching even higher numbers of participants. At the same time, it is an ideal moment to reflect together on how far we have gone, how this was possible, and how to move forward and reach out even further. How do we foster programming and other digital skills for 21st century work and life in an even more collaborative and sharing environment for everyone? What is the role of European policy? In other words – how do we make every week Code Week?

Chair: Mrs Claire BURY, Deputy Director General of DG CONNECT

Speakers:

  • Mrs Miapetra KUMPULA-NATRI, Member of the European Parliament, Member of the ITRE Committee
  • Mr Alessandro BOGLIOLO, Coordinator of Code Week 2016 and 2017
  • Mrs Ilona KISH,  Director of Public Libraries Association, gathering 65.000 Libraries across Europe
  • Mr Liam RYAN, Managing Director of SAP Labs, co-organizer of Africa Code Week 

The debate will look at following questions:

  1. What are the most important reasons for which individual people and organisations engage in fostering programming and related digital skills needed for today's world?
  2. How to best connect with people across the continent and the world and make a common project on these issues happen – lessons learnt 2013-2016 and a message for the future?
  3. How can we bring Code Week to the next level?

You can register for the debate here until 25 September.

Code Week EU 2016 – Skill up for the digital world with #codeEU!

New record for the EU Code Week: more than half a million people took part in 2015

Come and meet the Ambassadors of Code Week on 27 September in Brussels! This amazing network of volunteers has been active since 2013 in engaging hundreds of thousands of kids and adults in coding activities across Europe and beyond. We are planning a very interactive discussion on how to work together for promoting digital skills and competencies for the 21st century work and life. This debate is hosted by Claire Bury, Deputy Director General of DG CONNECT.

Identification of long-term concept-symbols among citations: Do common intellectual histories structure citation behavior? le : 21/02/2017

“Citation classics” are not only highly cited, but also cited during several decades. We explore whether the peaks in the spectrograms generated by Reference Publication Years Spectroscopy (RPYS) indicate such long-term impact by comparing across RPYS for subsequent time intervals. Multi-RPYS enables us to distinguish between short-term citation peaks at the research front that decay within 10 years versus historically constitutive (long-term) citations that function as concept symbols. Using these constitutive citations, one is able to cluster document sets (e.g., journals) in terms of intellectually shared histories. We test this premise by clustering 40 journals in the Web of Science Category of Information and Library Science using multi-RPYS. It follows that RPYS can not only be used for retrieving roots of sets under study (cited), but also for algorithmic historiography of the citing sets. Significant references are historically rooted symbols among other citations that function as currency.

A semantic-based approach for querying linked data using natural language le : 25/11/2016

The semantic Web aims to provide to Web information with a well-defined meaning and make it understandable not only by humans but also by computers, thus allowing the automation, integration and reuse of high-quality information across different applications. However, current information retrieval mechanisms for semantic knowledge bases are intended to be only used by expert users. In this work, we propose a natural language interface that allows non-expert users the access to this kind of information through formulating queries in natural language. The present approach uses a domain-independent ontology model to represent the question’s structure and context. Also, this model allows determination of the answer type expected by the user based on a proposed question classification. To prove the effectiveness of our approach, we have conducted an evaluation in the music domain using LinkedBrainz, an effort to provide the MusicBrainz information as structured data on the Web by means of Semantic Web technologies. Our proposal obtained encouraging results based on the F-measure metric, ranging from 0.74 to 0.82 for a corpus of questions generated by a group of real-world end users.

Only 27.96% of the total global publications were cited one or more times during 2005–2014. Among subjects contributing to IoT, computer science contributed the highest publication share (64.93%), followed by engineering (43.01%), social sciences (4.65%), business, management and accounting (3.73%), physics (2.94%), and decision science (2.72%) during 2005–2014. Under broad subjects, the major priorities have been assigned to hardware (technology) with 43.87% share, followed by applications (42.93% share), architectural aspects of technology (22.69% share), security aspects (17.43% share), software (technology) (7.10% share), privacy (6.13% share), business models (0.85% share), governance (0.62% share), legal aspects and accountability (0.5% share), etc. Among the various organizations and authors contributing to IoT, the 20 most productive organizations and authors together contributed 16.78% and 6.13% publications share and 25.63% and 23.16% citation share to the cumulative global publications and citations output during 2005–2014. The top 15 most productive journals contributed 24.54% share to the total journal global publication output during 2005–2014, with largest number of papers (55) is published in Jisuanji Xuebao Chinese Journal of Computers, followed by International Journal of Distributed Sensor Network (50), Sensors Switzerland (46), China Communication (34), Wireless Personnel Communication (33), IEEE Sensors Journal (28), etc. There were only 10 highly cited papers (which came from 8 countries and involved 24 institutions and 41 authors), which had received 100 or more citations, and together got 2951 citations during 2005–2014.
