CBS / UT Data Camp 2016

6-9 December 2016, University of Twente


Venue

Main venue: Hotel Drienerburght @ University of Twente,
Drienerlolaan 5, 7522 NB Enschede, The Netherlands.

Content

The data camp is a joint event organized by the Central Bureau for Statistics of the Netherlands (CBS), the University of Twente (UT) and the Netherlands School for Information and Knowledge Systems (SIKS). During the camp, a set of analysts and researchers from the above organizations will answer research questions about statistics using big data technologies. On Tuesday, 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.

Research Questions

The research questions that we intend to answer during the data camp are societal relevant and aligned to the UN Sustainability Goals. A list of initially proposed questions can be found here.
