Due to the COVID 19 pandemic our Summer School cannot take place as planned in 2020. We regret this very much. If the situation has become stable again by next year and worldwide travel should be possible, then we could imagine a Summer School again. Possible dates could be July 29 - August 06, 2021 (arrival on July 28, 2021). However, due to the current pandemic we can only decide on this in late autumn. Registrations could then be accepted from December 2020 at the earliest.

In virtually every subject people need to work with large amounts of data nowadays. In our Summer School you will receive a hands-on introduction to data science and get familiarized with many useful tools, in particular, but not only "R". Learn about the latest trends, e.g. "deep learning", visit leading technology companies and work on practical case studies. Benefit from intercultural competence in an intercultural training as well as through cooperation with students from all over the world and get to know Bavaria in a great social program. Enjoy a day trip to Munich and experience BMW world, visit Castle Neuschwanstein and the Bavarian Alps, enjoy a Bavarian Get together and the historic city of Kempten. After the Summer School you have the opportunity to experience a real traditional Bavarian festival in Kempten. The "Kemptener Festwoche" starts on Saturday, August 07, 2021. Make it your summer! Welcome to Kempten Summer School!

Course leader

Prof. Dr. Jochen Stauchdacher

Target group

Bachelor students of all study programs, in particular technical or economics degree programs from the end of the first academic year. Master students of all study programs are of course also welcome. Previous knowledge in Data Science is not required.

Course aim

You can run your own little analysis in "R" and present your own case study. You know how to go from one simple source format to multiple possible output formats, like e.g. HTML, PDF and MS-Word, using "R Markdown". You are informed about some of the lastet trends as well as about some strategies to defend yourself against the possible misuse of big data algorithms. You experienced an intercultural training and benefited from lots of practical exercices with the support of our tutors.
