Art has an important role to play in helping the public make sense of complex data in new and exciting ways. Able to see the patterns in the data, artists and data scientists alike, translate information into visual and aesthetic forms that increase awareness and make complicated issues easier to understand. The planning committee for UW-Madison’s Data Science Research Bazaar seeks submissions for artwork influenced by data science or created by data scientists for display. We welcome submissions from both campus members and the public, and encourage submitters to think broadly on the intersections between data science and art.
The Data Science Hub is excited to invite you to participate in the inaugural Data Science Research Bazaar by submitting your ideas to present!
UW-Madison’s Data Science Research Bazaar is a practical, two-day, hands-on, unconference-style event for all members of the UW-Madison campus community who are interested in data science, from expert methodologists to novice learners just getting their feet wet with data science tools. Presenters from all disciplines, all UW-Madison affiliated individuals, and individuals from the surrounding Madison area are encouraged to apply. Help make the Research Bazaar a successful exchange of ideas and skills by participating and submitting your idea to present. The Research Bazaar is happening at the Discovery Building on January 24-25, 2020.
Proposals are due on November 15, 2019, unless otherwise noted in a specific call.
The Research Bazaar is seeking proposals for the following presentation formats and workshops:
- Lightning Talks: 3-minute short talks looking for collaborators/resources or sharing a data science tool/pipeline/resource
- Concurrent Sessions: 90 minutes for forming or meeting with Communities of Practice, tool demonstrations, other longer form discussion sessions
- Workshops: 2.5 hours to teach a hands-on tutorial for a tool, workflow, or concept
- Building an Innovative Research Community at UW-Madison – Poster Session I (Day 1)
