On 23-27 November 2015, the Data Camp, a joint event organized by the Central Bureau for Statistics of the Netherlands (CBS) and the University of Twente (UT). During the camp, a set of CBS data analysts and UT researchers will answer research questions about statistics using big data technologies. On Monday, the participants will be presented with overview presentations about the research questions and technologies. The data camp participants will work in small, mixed teams in an informal setting. Experienced data scientists will support the teams by short mini-workshops and hands-on support. The hope is that the intense contact with the research question in an informal and spontaneous environment will produce valuable and innovative answers to the posed questions.
Guest speakers are Erik Tjong Kim Sang (Meertens Institute, Amsterdam) and David González (Vizzuality, Madrid).
