An ICTP Meeting in presence

This activity focuses on building a range of data-related skills that are vital for addressing trans-disciplinary challenges in contemporary research work.

The Summer School builds competence in data analysis and security for participants from all disciplines and/ or backgrounds from sciences to humanities. Topics to be covered include principles and practice of research data management, authorship in the 21st century, data curation, data security, Open Science, visualization, machine learning and artificial neural networks.

The activity includes practical hands-on sessions on techniques and applications for large-scale data handling, analysis, visualization and modeling on a variety of compute infrastructure including high performance compute platforms/systems.
