7th International School on Big Data

BigDat 2021 Autumn
10-14 October 2021, Beersheba, Israel

BigDat 2021 Autumn will be a research training event with a global scope aiming at updating participants on the most recent advances in the critical and fast developing area of big data. Previous events were held in Tarragona, Bilbao, Bari, Timișoara, Cambridge and Ancona.

Big data is a broad field covering a large spectrum of current exciting research and industrial innovation with an extraordinary potential for a huge impact on scientific discoveries, medicine, engineering, business models, and society itself. Renowned academics and industry pioneers will lecture and share their views with the audience.

Most big data subareas will be displayed, namely foundations, infrastructure, management, search and mining, security and privacy, and applications (to biological and health sciences, to business, finance and transportation, to online social networks, etc.). Major challenges of analytics, management and storage of big data will be identified through 24 four-hour and a half courses and 3 keynote lectures, which will tackle the most active and promising topics. The organizers are convinced that outstanding speakers will attract the brightest and most motivated students. Interaction will be a main component of the event.

An open session will give participants the opportunity to present their own work in progress in 5 minutes. Moreover, there will be two special sessions with industrial and recruitment profiles.
