Summer School on Big Data Science
The multi-institutional, interdisciplinary CREATE Program in Data Analytics and Visualization (DAV) at York University in Toronto offers an *all-expenses-paid undergraduate summer school on big data science.
The event includes talks by CREATE DAV faculty and industry experts on current research topics in big data science, as well as hands-on experience in York and OCAD U laboratories. The curriculum reflects the wide range of research areas at CREATE DAV, which includes research on machine learning, data mining, signal processing, computer vision, image processing, computer graphics, virtual human modeling, serious games, natural language processing, human perception & cognition, visualization & design.
The program accepts undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing a career a career in the big data science. It is intended mainly for students who are planning to apply to graduate school in late 2020, and are interested in investigating interdisciplinary research aspects of the big data science. Citizens of all countries are eligible.
The Summer School dates are May 19-22, 2020
The application deadline is March 9, 2020.
The application package consists of the following:
- A Completed Online Application Form
- A Reference Letter, which should be sent from a referee directly to CREATE DAV Program.
Who is eligible to apply?
- A senior (year 3, preferably) undergraduate students that have a background in Computer Science, Math, Engineering, Psychology, and Data Visualization.
- Current OCAD U’s senior undergraduate and prospective graduate students.
Is this event only for undergraduates?
Most of our applicants are undergraduates, but anyone who is considering applying to a master’s or Ph.D. program can apply.
Is this event only for Canadian university students?
We accept applicants from anywhere; however, the program will cover only a portion of the travel expenses (up to 1,300 CAD). In other words, should the cost of travel exceed allocated amount, the applicant will be responsible for paying the remainder of their travel expenses.
Is this program only for students with a background in computer science?
Big data science and visualization is a highly interdisciplinary field, and anyone with a background in Computer Science, Math, Engineering or Psychology and a strong interest in pursuing graduate studies in the subject is encouraged to apply.
