Data Science Poster Session Draws Crowds


The eScience Institute hosted a very successful and well-attended Data Science Poster and Networking Session in Mary Gates Hall Commons on February 10th, 2016. As the second (soon to be annual) event of its kind, this session drew participants from over 25 different departments and organizations from across the UW campus and beyond.

Anyone engaged in research or teaching involving data-intensive discovery was invited to present. Sixty-two posters were displayed representing fields as diverse as Political Science, Physics, and Forest Sciences. Researchers found commonalities in extracting knowledge from large, noisy, and complex datasets as well as in using and developing advanced statistical techniques, data management platforms, and visualization methods.

This was an incomparable opportunity to network with others involved in advancing the forefront of data-intensive discovery.
