2nd ACM Europe Summer School on Data Science
ACM invites students to the 2nd ACM Europe Summer School on Data Science to be held in Athens (Greece) on 12–18 July 2018. Students will have the opportunity to attend keynote lectures and multi-lecture courses by distinguished academics and researchers on several forms of data analytics and machine learning, including the interplay between advanced data processing and machine learning, visual analytics, social analytics and recommendation systems, medical analytics, spatiotemporal analytics, and ethics of data science.
Fees, Terms, and Requirements
Participants to the School will be advanced undergraduate and graduate (MSc and PhD) students, postdocs, young faculty, and other academic and industrial researchers interested in an intensive study of key topics on Data Science.
They are required to already have some exposure to databases, data mining, and machine learning. They should speak and understand English. Admission to the Summer School will be based on the candidate’s profile and academic and professional experience (as captured in their CV), together with their motivation for participating (as captured in their statement of purpose) and the recommendation letter from their supervisor.
Students are required to pay a fee of 300 euros as a contribution towards the Summer School costs. All the rest is covered by ACM and the other School sponsors. Students will be offered the following: all course material and documentation, accommodation for 8 nights (in: 11 July, out: 19 July) in the 4* Royal Olympic Hotel (in double occupancy -for students appropriately paired up-, with breakfast and lunch included), and several social activities (details to be announced soon). Personal expenses and any other expenses (e.g. flights to and from Athens, single occupancy accommodation etc) not expressly stated here are not covered by the School. A limited number of fee waivers may be available to applicants for whom this amount poses a financial burden. For such requests contact the organizers at email@example.com.
Surrounded by a lining of stunning coastline and mountains, Athens is filled with gems just waiting to be discovered. Located at the crossroads of three continents, the capital of Greece with an overall population of close to 4 million people has often been the melting pot of many cultures. Characterised by a culture and people that are welcoming and relaxed every visitor will feel like home.
There is a number of magnificent historical sites worth visiting very near to the Royal Olympic Hotel (walking distance): Acropolis Museum 300m | The temple of Zeus 300m | Roman Agora 1km| Acropolis of Athens 1,2km
An interesting and stimulating social program will take advantage of the historical and cultural identity of Athens and complement the technical program of the School.
