Essex Big Data and Analytics Summer School

May 30, 2017

The Institute for Analytics and Data Science (IADS) at the University of Essex will be running the 3rd Big Data and Analytics Summer School at our Colchester Campus between 24th July – 4th of August

The Essex Big Data and Analytics Summer School is a multidisciplinary research training event and forum for knowledge exchange and networking for graduates, researchers, practitioners and professionals in the emerging fields of data science, analytics and big data who would like to find out more or be updated on the current trends and developments in this exciting and fast-developing field.

Following the successful events in previous years, the programme covers a range of topics from the curation and management of big data, advanced techniques and methods including artificial intelligence and statistical methods, and applications of big data in fields ranging from business and finance to bioinformatics. Courses are offered for participants with a science, social science or humanities background at different levels (Beginners, Intermediate or Advanced). Courses range from theoretical to lab-based or a mixture of theory and lab-based instruction and practice. Thirty five courses will be delivered by academic and industry experts in parallel sessions over the two week period.  Participants can attend either one week or both and can choose the courses of most interest to them to create their own programme of study.

Other information

The Summer School includes keynote lectures from academic and industry experts delivered over the two weeks.

Social events will be organised each week to enable participants to network and share ideas and experience of data analytics, data science and big data.
