      AIM:

      BigDat 2015 is a research training event for graduates and postgraduates in
      the first steps of their academic career. It aims at updating them about the
      most recent developments in the fast developing area of big data, which
      covers a large spectrum of current exciting research, development and
      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.

      All big data subareas will be displayed, namely: foundations,
      infrastructure, management, search and mining, security and privacy, and
      applications. Main challenges of analytics, management and storage of big
      data will be identified through 4 keynote lectures and 24 six-hour courses,
      which will tackle the most lively and promising topics. The organizers
      believe outstanding speakers will attract the brightest and most motivated
      students. Interaction will be a main component of the event.

      ADDRESSED TO:

      Graduate and postgraduates from around the world. There are no formal
      pre-requisites in terms of academic degrees. However, since there will be
      differences in the course levels, specific knowledge background may be
      required for some of them.

      BigDat 2015 is also appropriate for more senior people who want to keep
      themselves updated on recent developments and future trends. They will
      surely find it fruitful to listen and discuss with major researchers,
      industry leaders and innovators.

      REGIME:

      In addition to keynotes, 3 courses will run in parallel during the whole
      event. Participants will be able to freely choose the courses they will be
      willing to attend as well as to move from one to another.
