Leiden hosts international ERCIS workshop on data science

The annual workshop of the European Research Center for Information Systems (ERCIS) was held in Leiden this year. The Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science (LIACS) and the Leiden Centre of Data Science (LCDS) hosted the event.

Some 60 researchers from all over Europe gathered in Leiden to join the workshop, which took place from 28 until 30 August. This year’s event, organised by Michael Emmerich (LIACS), was focused on the confluence of data science and information systems. After an opening by Aske Plaat (LIACS) and Jaap van den Herik (LCDS), the thematic focus was explored, as well as future possibilities for European project collaborations.
