UW-Madison’s Data Science Research Bazaar is a practical, hands-on, informal conference for all members of the campus community, from expert data science methodologists to novice learners, who are interested in data science. The second annual Research Bazaar is happening virtually throughout February 2021.

The 2021 Data Science Research Bazaar is themed Data Science for the Social Good. Sub-themes include Data Science for Racial Equity, Data Science for Health and the Environment, and Data Science for Cities.

Presenters from all disciplines, including UW-Madison affiliated individuals and members of the community, are encouraged to apply. Help make the Research Bazaar a successful exchange of ideas and skills by submitting your presentation ideas.

Proposals are due November 25, 2020.

Lightning Talks: 3-minute short talks, followed by time for participants to connect and foster future collaborations.

Poster Session: Posters that connect data science research to other applications and research topics are encouraged.

Interactive Discussions: 90-minute discussions and community building around an issue, question, service or project that is related to one of the Research Bazaar sub-themes.
