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 summer school on Big Data and Machine learnuing in its series of summer schools (20162017). The event aims at graduate students, Ph.D. students, researchers and practitioners  starting or being active in the fields of Big Data and machine Learning. Within the program, we offer inspiring insights into the area by selected keynotes from international experts combined with industrial talks.  Prior to the summer school, there will be a "streamline" hackathon for hands-on development of an application for real-time analytics of streaming data.  Furthermore, there will be plenty of opportunities to exchange ideas and to discuss the topics with other participants and speakers. The summer school also hosts several social activities such as a city walk and a dinner in a traditional restaurant.

Big Data in Business workshop - 15./16. Juni  2017 in Leipzig

Nach der positiven Rückmeldung zum Big Data in Business Workshop 2015 ( haben wir uns entschieden den Workshop als 2-Tages Veranstaltung zu wiederholen. Der Big Data in Business Workshop ermöglicht Vertretern regionaler und international agierender Unternehmen sowie Wissenschaftlern aus der Informatik einen praxisbezogenen fachlichen Austausch. In Zeiten der Digitalen Transformation werden weite Teile der Industrie zunehmend mit der Problematik enorm großer und komplex aufgebauter Datenmengen konfrontiert, die einerseits großes wirtschaftliches Potential, anderseits viele bisher nicht umfassend adressierte praktische Hürden mit sich bringen. Der IT-Sektor erarbeitet unter dem Schlagwort Big Data derzeit Schlüsseltechnologien, mit dem sich die Verwaltung und Analyse großer Datenmengen gewinnbringend und verlässlich durchführen lassen.

Die Referenten berichten im Rahmen des Workshops über Strategien und gefundene Best Practices aus Ihren Organisationen und diskutieren mit den Teilnehmern über aktuelle Fragestellungen, Technologien und ihre bisherigen Erfahrungen. Zusätzlich informieren die Leipziger Forscher über ihre bisherigen Ergebnisse und prototypischen Lösungen. Der Workshop soll daher insbesondere bestehende Kooperationen festigen und ausbauen sowie den Kontakt zu weiteren Kooperationspartnern schaffen.

Während des Workshops werden viele Freiräume für die Interaktion der Teilnehmer zur Verfügung stehen, um über vorgestellte Lösungen und Problemstellungen ausführlich diskutieren zu können. Zusätzlich laden wir alle Teilnehmer am Abend zu einem Big Data Buffet im Bayrischen Bahnhof ein und freuen und auf spannende Diskussionen und Austausch.
