The 1st Data Science Summer School will take place on September 24-26 2014 at Saarland University.

The summer school is an intensive, half-week hands-on introduction to data science for college students. It addresses the need for future experts in data science that venture to solve big-data challenges with skills in business, science and computing – “a combination that is still hard to find” (cf. Mattmann, Nature 2013). We will introduce you to basic but also advanced statistics and its application in business and healthcare situations. Lectures are combined with hands-on modules that will help you to understand theoretical principles and how to apply them.

No previous knowledge of the subject is required, although attendants should have a minimal programming skill set. As an introduction or refreshment of these programming skills, we can recommend the courses in JavaScript and Python offered by CodeAcademy.

The Data Science summer school is taught by leading scientists from Europe and the US as well as by industrial experts. It is held at the Saarland University within the facilities of the department of Business Administrations.
