Running from the 10th – 14th of June at the Data Science Institute, NUI Galway, Ireland, the KDU Visual Analytics Summer School will provide students, researchers, academics and industry professionals with an opportunity to come together to learn, share experiences and to develop new cross-disciplinary partnerships.

Over the course of this 5 day-long workshop we will:

  • learn from key researchers in the field,
  • take part in hands-on sessions to deepen these learnings, and
  • work together on case-study oriented mini-projects.

The target audiences include postgraduate students and early career researchers in the fields of data analysis, visualisation, digital humanities, Human Computer Interaction (HCI), business and IT. This diverse group of disciplines is important, as it will enable interdisciplinary approaches to both the mini-projects within the workshop, and to future collaborative research projects. We are also keen to include participants drawn from local industry and the civil service, especially those whose role includes data-led decision-making.

For details of the full programme, please see the schedule.
