Following last year's success, we're pleased to announce the 2nd International Summer School on Data Science (SSDS 2017), to be held on 25-29 September 2017 in Split, Croatia.

The SSDS 2017 is organized by the Center of Research Excellence for Data Science and Advanced Cooperative Systems, Research Unit for Data Science.

The SSDS 2017 is open to all graduate students, researchers, and professionals in the area of data science. The program consists of lectures taught by renowned researchers in the field. This year's edition focuses on machine learning, in particular deep learning, which has grown to be an important and lively area of research, and an important and effective tool for many data science applications.

The five-days lectures will present the fundamental and advanced concepts of deep learning. In the accompanying hands-on sessions, the participants will have an opportunity to experience the practical aspects of deep learning. In addition, the SSDS 2017 will include a poster session giving participants an opportunity to present and discuss their research results.

The deadline for application for the SSDS 2017 is 14th of August or until all available positions are filled.

First International Workshop on Data...

Research Unit for Data Science, Centre of Research Excellence for Data Science and Cooperative Systems is proud to announce The First International Workshop on Data Science (IWDS 2016), to be held in Zagreb, Croatia, on 30th November, 2016.

The workshop aims at fostering the interaction of researchers and exchange of new ideas in the diverse area of data science. Furthermore, the workshop seeks to encourage the interaction and networking between data science researchers and practitioners from both industry and government organisations. 

The scientific program of the workshop includes invited lectures as well as oral and poster presentations. The workshop audience will include doctoral students, postdocs, and researchers and developers working in academia and industry, who are active in the area of data science theory and applications. The workshop is open to the members of the Centre of Research Excellence for Data Science and Advanced Cooperative Systems and to all other national and international participants interested in data science.

More information about IWDS 2016 can be found here.

CompleNet 2017 to be held in...

The 8th Conference on Complex Networks (CompleNet 2017) will be held on 22-25th March 2017, in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

CompleNet aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners working on areas related to complex networks. In the past two decades we have been witnessing an exponential increase on the number of publications in this field. From biological systems to computer science, from economic to social systems, complex networks are becoming pervasive in many fields of science. It is this interdisciplinary nature of complex networks that CompleNet aims at addressing.

Submission deadline is 13th November 2016. More information can be found here.
