We are preparing for Data Science Day 2018 and are eager to make it a valuable experience for you. Your input in setting up the programme is greatly valued.
Learning from 2017
In 2017 we organised the first Data Science Day. It was an exciting business for us because it was not self-evident that the target group, the researchers from Utrecht University, would be able to find us easily. Yet the day was a success. Together with the Utrecht Platform for Applied Data Science, we organised a fun programme, with appealing keynotes and workshops and a fun Demolab.
Last year an important learning point was that knowledge of the participants in the field of data analysis, privacy, HPC and the use of repositories varied greatly. There were researchers who had been working on this for years, but also researchers who were only getting started..
Preparing for 2018: are you in?
We have started preparations on a second Data Science Day. No date is planned yet, but it will probably be around April 2018. This year, we will clearly indicate which programme components require prior knowledge.
We hope to see you soon on Data Science Day 2018!
