Apologies for cross-posting


We would like to draw your attention to the Big Data and Analytics Summer School which will take place at the University of Essex, Colchester campus from 5-16 September 2016.

The Summer School is being organised by the Institute for Analytics and Data Science and is open to both internal and external delegates.

Data is the gold rush for the 21st Century. Smart phones, social media, the Internet, apps, devices, sensors, smart cards, telematics and GPS are changing how we interact with the world around us and each other. Some predictions put the rate of growth of data between 2013 to 2020 at over 200% a year with an estimate that by 2020 there will be more than 16 zettabytes of useful data (16 trillion GB). The big data and analytics market is growing six times faster than the ICT market, according to the IDC.

Our summer school is for graduates, postgraduates, researchers and professionals in the emerging fields of big data, data science and analytics who would like to find out more or be updated on the current trends and developments in this exciting and fast-developing field.

  *   Hear keynote talks by leading experts.
  *   Attend state-of-the-art courses delivered by academics from Essex and other leading institutions and our industrial partners.
  *   Network with your peers in an invaluable forum for knowledge exchange.
Whether you are interested in the curation and management of big data, advanced techniques and methods including artificial intelligence, multi-agent systemsmodelling and statistical methods, or applications of big data in fields ranging from business and finance to bioinformatics, you will find a set of relevant courses for you.

Courses will be available covering a wide range of topics from multiple perspectives. Courses are available at various levels. They will be delivered in parallel over the ten days and you can choose the courses of most interest to create your own programme of study. A programme detailing the courses can be found at:

Participants can either attend just one week or both.
