PhD Winter School in Data Mining & Bioinformatics
About the School
The main purpose of the 2006 EII PhD Winter School is to expose students to research opportunities in the areas of Data Mining and the Bioinformatics, as well as offering essential instruction in technical writing, research methodologies and research ethics. EII PhD Schools bring PhD students together with experienced researchers from top institutions across the EII network to enhance and invigorate their research education, and to improve their depth of understanding of emerging and fundamental topics in ICT. The Schools offer an opportunity for PhD students to share and discuss their research with peers and mentors, and to start developing ideas & concepts into research papers for submission to major international journals and conferences. The experience will also advance the development and raise the standard of the students’ dissertations.
EII and member institutions will provide financial support for successful nominees to attend the workshop. This support includes where relevant, return economy airfare, local transport to and from the venue, shared accommodation, catering, and PhD School materials.
