|Abstract:||The 2014 conference on Big Data from Space (BiDS’14), 12th–14th of November 2014) co-organised by the European Space Agency (ESA), the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission, and the European Union Satellite Centre (SatCen) is bringing together researchers, engineers, users in the area of Big Data in the Space sector. The focus is on the whole data life cycle, ranging from data acquisition by space borne and ground-based sensors to data management, analysis and exploitation in the domains of Earth Observation, Space Science, Space Engineering, Space Weather, etc. Special emphasis is put on highlighting synergies and cross-fertilisation opportunities. Big Data from Space is an emerging domain given the recent sharp increase in all three main dimensions of big data: volume, velocity, and variety. This is especially true for Space Science with the processing and data volume challenges given by the GAIA mission or for Earth Observation (EO) data with the public release of the complete archive of Landsat data by the United States Geological Survey (USGS). At an even larger scale, the unique and ambitious European Union Copernicus programme whose Sentinel missions operated by the European Space Agency (ESA) will deliver free, full, and open access to global data in optical, thermal, and radar ranges from a planned series of 24 EO satellites. A total of 132 papers were submitted for presentation at the conference. Following the peer- review process by members of the conference programme committee, 79 papers were selected for oral and 41 for poster presentations (for a total of 215 distinct co-authors with affiliations originating from more than 28 different countries). Among the 79 papers selected for oral presentation, 30 originate from invited sessions devoted to a series specialised topics related to horizontal themes as well as applications ranging from climate change to astronomy. All presented materials included in these proceedings provide a snapshot of the on-going applied and theoretical developments as well as projects related to the emerging domain of Big Data from Space.|
