SDSC offers Virtual Data Intensive Summer School Monday June 30 - Wednesday July 2 2014 (8:00AM - 2:00PM)

The San Diego Supercomputer Center will be one of 21 sites across the country hosting the Virtual Data Intensive Summer School on Monday June 30 - Wednesday July 2. It is intended for participants who are local to San Diego or one of the other 20 sites that will be linked using videoconferencing technology. 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.

They 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.
