ATHENA Super Summer School

Welcome to the first edition of the ATHENA Advanced Databases Super Summer School!

This Super Summer School organised by the ATHENA European University offers you the core knowledge and practice to start exploring advanced data technologies topics in cooperation with professors and colleagues from all over Europe in a hybrid learning environment.

You will be attending short courses on advanced database concepts together with colleagues from your home university in a local lab (for Portuguese students it will be room B402 at ISEP – Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto) as well as with students from other universities attending remotely. From Monday, the 10th July 2023, to Thursday the 13th July 2203, a lecturer from one of the partner universities will lead the day. On the 17th July 2023, students teams will work on a final assignment. All activities will be run in hybrid mode with students attending face-to-face and others attending online via the Teams videoconferencing platform. All activities are held in international teams.

You will acquire knowledge and practice on how to use data analytics in decision-making contexts, on graph databases using the Neo4j Database Management System, on multidimensional data bases and Online Analytical Processing – OLAP, on Data Streaming concepts and on big data architecture design. The courses are designed for people who have acquired the basic concepts and skills related to databases and programming.

Distinguished lecturers will lead each of the first four days of the school, the fifth day being devoted to assignments to be carried out by international groups of students: Dr. Martina Šestak from the Institute of Informatics, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (University of Maribor, Slovenia), Prof. Carlo Drago from the University Niccolò Cusano, Rome, Italy, Prof. Nuno Escudeiro and Prof. Bruno Oliveira from the Instituto Politécnico do Porto, Portugal.
