We are pleased to announce the Sixth European Business Intelligence & Big Data Summer School. This summer school, presented by leading researchers in the field, represents an opportunity for postgraduate students to equip themselves with the theoretical, practical, and collaboration skills necessary for developing challenging Business Intelligence applications. To ensure a high ratio between tutors and students the school will be limited to 50 participants. Furthermore, industrial presentations will allow participants to gain a deep understanding of current product offer.
The summer school will provide a stimulating and enjoyable environment in which participants will benefit not only from the formal and practical sessions but also from informal and social interactions with established researchers and the other participants in the school. To further facilitate communication and feedback all attendees will be obliged to prepare and present a poster on their own research. The electronic copy of all course lectures will be available to participants through the web site. A special issue containing the revised lecture material of the summer school will be published in the series Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP) from Springer.
We welcome applicants from anywhere in the world. Normally, but not exclusively, applicants will be postgraduate students in relevant disciplines with some knowledge of database and information systems. Some basic acquaintance with data warehouses is required.
Accepted candidates are expected to arrive on Sunday, July 3rd between 4 pm and 8 pm and to participate fully in the activities of the school until it ends, on Friday, July 8th at 4 pm. We will not consider applications from students who cannot commit themselves to full participation for the whole duration of the school.
Participants are also required to bring a poster (A1 paper format) describing their own research to the summer school. Two special sessions on Monday and Tuesday evening are dedicated to the poster presentation.
