Learning Opportunity / Event

From the Research at UW Newsletter: UW-Madison’s Data Science Research Bazaar is a two-day conference, where researchers and data scientists from various disciplines and industries will have opportunities to share their work, collaborate, and discuss their data science interests. With a focus not just on research and training in data science, but on fostering a collaborative data science community, the Data Science Research Bazaar is an event unlike any academic conference you have ever attended. The Data Science Research Bazaar is modeled off of the internationally occurring Research Bazaar, a worldwide festival promoting the digital literacy emerging at the center of modern research. The aim of these events is to equip researchers from all career stages with the digital skills and tools required to do their research better, faster and smarter. Throughout 2020, events will be held at a number of universities around the globe.

UW-Madison will host its Data Science Research Bazaar on January 24-25, 2020. Click here for more information.
