The first Cascadia Urban Analytics Cooperative¬†Summit took place on the University of British Columbia campus July 13 – 14. eScience Data Science for Social Good (DSSG) student fellows and project leads joined with UW faculty to meet their counterparts in UBC’s pilot DSSG program.

Events included mid-term presentations by the four UW and the four UBC DSSG project teams, as well as a lightning talks and breakout discussions focused on identifying fruitful topics for research collaborations between the UW and the UBC under the broad umbrella of urban analytics.

Great food and conversations coupled with beautiful summer weather to make this an enjoyable, educational addition to our annual DSSG program.
