IRIXYS and the AIDA consortium (Artificial Intelligence for Data Analytics) in collaboration Atos International Germany jointly organised a Summer School for PhD students and junior scientists with the title “Big Data and Business: Methods, Technologies and Innovation”.

The Summer School intended to build a strong network of young and experienced scientists for future cooperations. Addressing different approaches in the field of Big Data Analytics, Internet of Things and Machine Learning, the event aimed at getting a deeper insight into fundamental research works as well as technological transfer and industrial purposes.

The Summer School particularly targeted PhD students. Master students who were interested in pursuing their academic path in the research field could participate within the number of available places.


The Summer School took place at Frauenwörth, a Benedictine abbey located on the Fraueninsel in Lake Chiemsee, Bavaria. Beside the monatisc life of the Benedictine community, the abbey is used all over the year as a venue for conferences or seminars.

The Chiemsee Lake also called the “Bavarian sea” is the biggest lake in Bavaria and is situated in the Bavarian Alps, around 90 km from Munich.
