Summer School on Data Assimilation and its applications in Oceanography, Hydrology, Risk & Safety and Reservoir Engineering

22 JULY, 2019 - 02 AUGUST, 2019

Summer School on Data Assimilation and its applications in Oceanography, Hydrology, Risk & Safety and Reservoir Engineering

Where The Bright Minds Meet

Our purpose is to get together experts in the field of data assimilation from different schools (statistics, decision analysis, system and control, pure mathematics, engineering, etc.) and to make use of their knowledge by:

  • educating graduate students, young and senior researchers;
  • transferring knowledge from the best lecturers to the students;
  • exposing the Romanian students, academics and researchers to the most recent theoretical/algorithmic approaches and their applications;
  • having extensive discussions and exchanging ideas;
  • working hands-on with academic and commercial dedicated software.

This summer school targets primarily students and researchers at an early stage of their career with/without previous experience in data assimilation.
