Midwest Big Data Summer School will Happen!

Myself and Pavan Aduri wrote to the Midwest Big Data Hub to seek support for organizing the Inaugural Midwest Big Data Summer School in June 2016. Just heard that proposal was accepted, although with a significant reduction in budget.

Our aim to organize this summer school as a one week, intensive curriculum aimed at early career researchers to get them started in data‐driven research. The school will include full day lectures on topics ranging from: data acquisition, data preprocessing, exploratory data analysis, descriptive data analysis, data analysis tools and techniques, visualization and communication, ethical issues in data science, reproducibility and repeatability, and understanding of domain/context. The summer school will also include hands‐on data analysis experience. No prerequisites will be assumed.

Looking forward to organizing the event. More details will become available here at the Midwest Big Data Summer School web-site.
