Details

  • This Summer School is aimed at graduate students who know how to program and want experience using Hadoop, working in teams and under time pressure. Senior undergaduates can also apply.
  • Hosted within the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh.
  • Tutorial material on Hadoop will be given at the start of the event.

  • People will work in teams and will be largely self-directed. The proposed projects usually do not have predefined solutions! You will need to prepare for this project in advance, so do not expect to simply start on it when you arrive. We will help where possible.
  • Numbers will be limited to 40 people and we cannot guarantee that all applicants will be able to attend.
  • Affiliated with EMNLP 2011
  • There is no registration fee and financial help is provided.
