SIRIUS General Assembly held 21-22 May 2019

SIRIUS holds a meeting of its General Assembly twice a year, in May and November. The meeting brings together the academic and industrial partners in the centre for two days of discussing research results and networking. This year the meeting was hosted by Schlumberger at their technology centre in Asker. The program consisted of plenary lectures by innovation leaders in Schlumberger, Equinor, IBM and SINTEF. These were followed by posters and demonstrations of work from the SIRIUS Beacons. Day one concluded with demonstrations of partner’s tools and integration frameworks: Schlumberger’s DELFI platform, Kadme‘s WhereOil, Equinor’s Sepes sandbox for data sharing, DNV GL’s Veracity, IBM’s Cognitive Discovery Pipeline and SAP’s HANA integration platforms.
