6th ESWC Summer School, Dubrovnik 2016
The overall goal for the 6th ESWC Summer School 2016 is to provide intensive training and networking opportunities for the next-generation of scientists and researchers in the digital age. In particular we wish to facilitate the creation of a new cohort of Master, PhD students, and junior researchers, who will in time become the next leaders of the Data Science and Semantic Web communities.
The topics of the summer school are aligned with the most prominent and emerging topics of the ESWC conference and the broader area of knowledge and data technologies that spans across a number of research areas, from knowledge representation and Linked Data to machine learning and big data.
This year’s motto is ‘The rise of the data scientist’ – the school features a mixture of invited talks and tutorials on several aspects of data science, including statistics, exploratory data analysis, data publishing and interlinking, machine learning, and data visualization as well as group projects, in which the participants will have the chance to apply what they have learned by developing their own data science research ideas and demos as part of a team.
We create opportunities for attendees to network with their peers, the school tutors, and keynotes as well as senior members of STI International and the research community who are participating in associated events.
