Research Skills for the World of Big Data

Dates:
  • Tue 30 Apr 2013 09.00 - 17.00
  Add to Calendar 2013-04-30 9:00 2013-04-30 17:00 Europe/Paris Research Skills for the World of Big Data

The SPS-EUDO Big Data workshop will be a multi-day event organised at the European University Institute. The event will combine theoretical sessions on the challenges involved in creating, storing and manipulating very large datasets with practical sessions teaching programming skills in the Python language and a series of clinics where researchers can discuss their own data challenges. The workshop builds on EUDO’s experiences in managing large datasets (in particular the data generated by the EU Profiler and the related EUDO Dataverse project), and will feature both talks from researchers involved in these projects and hands on work with the data generated. The aim of the event is to allow researchers to both share knowledge on large data handling and to build skills  to support future large scale research projects on European democracy.
