The Future Cloud Summer School  2015  will be held the first week (from August 3 to 9) at Bergendal, and the second week (from August 10 to 14) at EIT-ICT Labs Stockholm Co-location Center.

 

The FCSS is a two weeks event open to EIT-ICT Labs MSc students and EU Marie Curie ITN "iSocial" fellows as well as PhD students and postdocs from Europe. Students following this school will attend lectures from leading researchers and practitioners from academia and industry. The FCSS also includes a business proposal competition organized between student groups. Moreover, FCSS organizes the Big Data Analytics seminar on Friday, August 7, which is an open one-day, high quality event focusing on Cloud business and technology and opened to a large audience. The goal of this summer school is to teach advanced topics related to algorithms and platforms for Big Data as well as to enhance the innovation and entrepreneurial awareness among students. The FCSS will cover both presentations by researchers on Big Data analytics and platforms as well as presentations by company experts on business models. Through the two weeks students will work in teams of two to four on problems that will be initiated by leading European companies working on Big Data.
