We are continuing to monitor developments related to the coronavirus outbreak emergency and its potential impact on the school. It is difficult to predict what it is going to happen in July in Lipari and in the rest of world. We do not even know if flights and other connections will be restored in time. However, your health, well-being, and safety is of primary concern to us. Our current advice is to wait further communications from us before buying your tickets: right now, the possibility that we will be forced to cancel the event cannot be neglected. We will keep you updated about our event, although we are still quite optimistic and we trust that this situation will be just a memory in July.

Aim and scope:
This summer school will provide opportunities to collect experience with modern data analysis, in particular Big Data analytics. This includes subjects to mine data in the Internet of Things. Our main and special guest lectures, which are recognized authorities in such a field, will address such a scope focusing on algorithms, computational models and practical results.
