SCRC Summer Schools

There are two summer schools to choose from under the themes ‘Social Computing in the Big Data Era’ and ‘Usable Security and Privacy in Online Social Networks’, within the scope of the EU-funded projects NOTRE and ENCASE respectively.

Both summer schools feature a range of speakers from renowned institutions that include the University College London (UCL), Aristotle University of Thessalonikis (AUTH) and the University of Düsseldorf as well as industry partners such as Telefonica. The summer schools are taught in parallel with intensive morning lecture sessions and afternoon study sessions while one day has been allocated for a visit.
