Join University of Washington President Michael K. Young, University of Washington Provost Ana Mari Cauce, University of Washington Vice Provost for Research Mary Lidstrom, representatives of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and your faculty and student colleagues from 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm on Friday February 7 in Mary Gates Hall:
- Learn about a 5-year $37.8 million "Data Science Environment" award to the University of Washington, Berkeley, and NYU from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation - an award that will help to ensure UW's leadership both in advancing the methodologies of data-intensive discovery, and in putting these advances to work for the broadest possible range of researchers.
- Learn about a 5-year $2.6 million NSF IGERT award to establish an interdisciplinary graduate program in data science - an award that will help to ensure that UW graduate students in a wide range of fields are prepared for these new approaches to discovery.
- Learn about the establishment of a campus-wide Data Science Studio as a center for collaborative activities in data science research, education, and software development involving faculty, students, staff Data Scientists, and Data Science Fellows.
- Learn about the Moore Foundation's new Data-Driven Discovery Initiative - 15 $1.5M awards with a pre-application deadline of February 24.
- Learn about the Northwest Institute for Advanced Computing, a joint initiative of the University of Washington and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
- Learn the many ways in which you can participate in and help shape these and other related activities, ensuring that UW is a leader in data-intensive discovery.
- Connect with others at a campus-wide poster session and networking event. Learn about your colleagues' data science activities and present your own data science activities. These activities may involve advancing data science methodologies, employing them in research and teaching, or both. Further information on the poster session and networking event here - please participate!
Agenda for the afternoon:
- 2:00-3:00 - Overview presentations in the Mary Gates Auditorium (MGH 389)
- 3:00-5:00 - Posters, refreshments, and conversation in the Mary Gates Commons
Please participate - not just by attending, but by presenting a poster describing your own data science activities and by networking with colleagues from across the campus and the region. Further information here.
