Aim and scope:
This summer school will provide opportunities to collect experience with modern data analysis, in particular Big Data analytics. This includes subjects to mine data in the Internet of Things. Our main and special guest lectures, which are recognized authorities in such a field, will address such a scope focusing on algorithms, computational models and practical results.
