The Essex Big Data and Analytics Summer School is a multidisciplinary research training event and forum for knowledge exchange and networking for graduates, postgraduates, researchers and professionals in the emerging fields of data science, analytics and big data who would like to find out more or be updated on the current trends and developments in this exciting and fast-developing field. The Summer School is organized by the Institute for Analytics and Data Science (IADS) at the University of Essex, UK.
This is the third year that the Big Data and Analytics Summer School is running and following the successful events in previous years, the programme covers a range of topics from the curation and management of big data, advanced techniques and methods including artificial intelligence and statistical methods, and applications of big data in fields ranging from business and finance to bioinformatics. Courses are offered for participants with a science, social science or humanities background at different levels (Beginners, Intermediate or Advanced). Courses range from theoretical to lab-based or a mixture of theory and lab-based instruction and practice. Thirty five courses will be delivered by academic and industry experts in parallel sessions over the two week period.  Participants can attend either one week or both and can choose the courses of most interest to them to create their own programme of study. For more detailed information on the range and content of courses visit:

The Summer School includes keynote lectures from academic and industry experts delivered over the two weeks.


Social events will be organised each week to enable participants to network and share ideas and experience of data analytics, data science and big data.

Spaces in the various courses are allocated on a first come first served basis and are limited, so early registration is advised to avoid disappointment and take advantage of the early registration  discount.


A number of scholarships are available, in particular for participants from developing and transitioning countries (see website for information).
