“Learning and Doing Data for Good: A conference for academics & their partners”
Friday, September 9th to Sunday, September 11th, 2022
The eScience Institute and the West Big Data Innovation Hub are hosting the “Learning and Doing Data for Good: A conference for academics and their partners” will be a forum for current students and alumni of university-based data for good programs to have the opportunity to present their work alongside past partners and data science professionals.
The Data for Good conference will be held from Friday, September 9th at 4:00 p.m. through Sunday, September 11th at 12:30 p.m. in the Zillow Room at the Bill and Melinda Gates Center for Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. We hope this will be a space of interesting and inspiring discussions and a time for connecting with colleagues and partners who are motivated to learn from and meet the needs of communities and people using data for change.
The conference will be both in-person and virtual this year. We are also excited to support travel to Seattle on a case-by-case basis for current students and alumni participating in this event. Please note if funding support is requested, early registration is strongly recommended.
Call for Presenters: Current and former students who have participated in university-based data for good programs and/or related research are eligible to present a poster or talk. Team presentations are encouraged.
