Summer School 2016

From July 11-15, 2016, the Big Data Center of Excellence (ScaDS Dresden/Leipzig) was excited to host its 2nd International Summer School on Big Data in Leipzig. The summer school took place at the lecture hall building of the Leipzig University.

Participants of the Summer School 2016 at the Augustplatz in Leipzig


Program & Highlights

The summer school provided overviews as well as deep dive sessions about the following topic highlights:

  • Big Data Storage/ NoSQL
  • Distributed Data Processing (HPC/MapReduce/Streaming/Spark/Flink)
  • Graph Analytics/Management
  • Big Data Integration

Supervised hands-on sessions were offered in three parallel tracks. Each track covered the same basic big data concepts but with a different use case from a different domain:

Track A: Text Mining (text reuse)
Track B: Genome Alignment Processing
Track C: Logistics

Below you can find the full program with additional information on the speakers and their topics:
