Originating Calendar NCSA-related events

The Data Intensive Summer School focuses on the skills needed to manage, process and gain insight from large amounts of data. It is targeted at researchers from the physical, biological, economic and social sciences that are beginning to drown in data. We will cover the nuts and bolts of data intensive computing, common tools and software, predictive analytics algorithms, data management and non-relational database models. Given the short duration of the summer school, the emphasis will be on providing a solid foundation that the attendees can use as a starting point for advanced topics of particular relevance to their work.

The course is offered via videoconference to multiple sites across the country, including NCSA at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. For complete course details and instructions on registering, visit http://www.vscse.org/summerschool/2013/bigdata.html.
