Participants to the School will be advanced undergraduate and graduate (MSc and PhD) students, postdocs, young faculty, and other academic and industrial researchers interested in an intensive study of key topics on Data Science.

They are required to already have some exposure to databases, data mining, and machine learning. They should speak and understand English. Admission to the Summer School will be based on the candidate’s profile and academic and professional experience (as captured in their CV), together with their motivation for participating (as captured in their statement of purpose) and the recommendation letter from their supervisor.

Students are required to pay a fee of 395 euros as a contribution towards the Summer School costs. All the rest is covered by ACM and the other School sponsors. Students will be offered the following: all course material and documentation, accommodation for 8 nights (in: 10 July, out: 18 July) in the 5* Athens Marriott Hotel (in double occupancy -for students appropriately paired up-, with breakfast and lunch included), and several social activities (details to be announced soon). Personal expenses and any other expenses (e.g. flights to and from Athens, single occupancy accommodation etc) not expressly stated  here are not covered by the School. A limited number of fee waivers may be available to applicants for whom this amount poses a financial burden. For such requests contact the organisers at
