CDT student Fernando Santos Sanchez, based in the Faculty of Medicine, attended the 2018 WST Summer School which was held in Hannover, Germany.

The programme spanned a wide range of topics in Data Science, Web mining and information extraction, social Web and online learning, Web-scale crowdsourcing and human computation, Big Data and Web semantics, and Web and society.  The timetable incorporated thematic talks, practical tutorials and social activities and the opportunity for participants to present research posters.

Fernando also participated in a team project to design a novel solution for a Web Science problem:  Can more meaningful indicators be extracted from written resources (webpages) to measure the complexity of the text? 

“The activities, presentations and tutorials presented during this summer school have greatly enriched my understanding of the vanguard research topics in the Web Science area.” He commented.
