On November 5-8, 2019, a broad group of eScience community members flew down to Sante Fe, New Mexico for the annual Moore Sloan Data Science Summit. The conference served to bring together academic data scientists and researchers from a range of disciplines to share advancements in academic research, domain applications, and structural approaches to running programs in data science. This year, over 100 people attended, including Moore-Sloan Data Science Environments partners from the New York University (NYU) Center for Data Science and the University of California, Berkeley’s Institute for Data Science. UW eScience Institute Data Scientists Anthony Arendt, Valentina Staneva, and Amanda Tan were among those who led discussion sessions. The program also featured seminars, lightning talks, networking activities and more.

The following are snapshots from the summit:
