A crowd attends the UW Data Science Poster and Networking SessionThe UW Data Science Poster and Networking Session, hosted by the eScience Institute, was held on February 21, 2017, at the Mary Gates Commons. Over 50 students, postdoctoral candidates and researchers  representing more than 30 departments on campus presented posters. Topics ranged from tracking microbubbles to open data literacy to design technologies for treating depression in North Korean defectors.

One of the session’s objectives was to encourage the sharing of analysis and information, and it was open to all disciplines. This is the third year that the Institute has hosted the poster session, which was also attended by those interested in learning more about how researchers across disciplines are employing data-intensive tools and techniques to their field of discovery.
