** Apologies for cross-posting **

The Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational 
Modelling, University of Warsaw, is organizing a winter edition of our 
European Summer School in Data Science under the auspices of the 
European Mathematical Society.

Rapid development of information technologies resulted in an increased 
availability of massive data sources in science as well as in business 
and public sectors. Together with the availability came the demand to 
use these data to test scientific hypotheses or extract knowledge and 
insight that can then inform decision making.

European Summer School in Data Science (ESSAM-ICM) is offered in 
response to the above mentioned demand and will provide opportunities 
for training in the form of workshops on numerous topics, including, but 
not limited to, Data Mining, Machine Learning, and tools, such as Apache 
Spark, R, and Python. During the training, attendees will participate in 
the following classes:

•Linear Models for Big Data (6 hours)

•Fast SQL on Hadoop (6 hours)

•Identification of Informative Features (4–5 hours)

•Big Data Analysis with Apache Spark (6 hours)

The winter edition event will take place on the *28th of November until 
the 2nd of December* in Warsaw. Knowledge exchange between academia, 
public administration, and industry is important because it enables us 
to adjust Data Science tools and methodologies to practical 
applications. Therefore, the school is also open for participants from 
the outside of academia who would like to share their experience and 
solve real problems they face in their everyday work.

ICM is a part of the University of Warsaw. As a centre of competence in 
Data Science and Data Management, it provides training, seminars, and 
conferences for both academic and non-academic participants. ICM is an 
RDA member and partner of the OpenAIRE2020 European Commission project.

We would be grateful if you would kindly convey the following 
information to PhD students researchers who might be interested in the 
topics of European Summer School in Data Science .

Details and registration forms are available on the following website:
