4th International Summerschool for Big Data June 30th to July 6th 2018 in Leipzig
From June 30th to July 6th 2018 the two in Germany based Big Data Competence Centers ScaDS Dresden/Leipzig and BBDC are organizing the fourth international Big Data summer school in its series (2016, 2017). The event aims at students, graduate students, as well as academic and industrial practitioners and researchers starting or being active in the field of Big Data. Within the program, we offer inspiring insights into the diverse field of Big Data by selected keynotes from international experts combined with possibilities for practical sessions to directly try out state-of-the-art techniques on relevant practical topics. The summer school covers the basics of working with large and complex amounts of data and provides an overview of relevant approaches and solutions. Thus, the participants can gain an insight into current research areas and acquire basic practical Big Data skills. Furthermore, there will be plenty of opportunities to exchange ideas and to discuss the topics with other participants and speakers. The talks and keynotes cover a broad range of relevant topics and will be held in English. The practical sessions start with a Hackathon prior to the actual school start and will be continued during the week in tutorial-style sessions.
