The Social Computing Research Centre at the Cyprus University of Technology provides a select cohort of Postgraduate and PhD students the opportunity to network, expand their knowledge and enhance their skills.
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), Aristotelio Panepistimio 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.
We encourage submissions from Postgraduate and PhD students with interest in Social Computing. Prospective applicants should review the particular focus of each summer school and select the one they wish to be considered for.
