We are pleased to announce the Third European Business Intelligence Summer School.  This summer school, presented by leading researchers in the field, represents an opportunity for postgraduate students (PhD or MSc), postdoc and other young researchers to equip themselves with the theoretical, practical, and collaboration skills necessary for developing challenging Business Intelligence applications. To ensure a high ratio between tutors and students the school will be limited to 50 participants. Furthermore, industrial presentations will allow participants to gain a deep understanding of current product offer. 

The summer school will provide a stimulating and enjoyable environment in which participants will benefit not only from the formal sessions but also from informal and social interactions with established researchers and the other participants in the school. To further facilitate communication and feedback all attendees will present a poster on their own research. The electronic copy of all course lectures will be available to participants through the web site.
