Yale Day of Data – Opening remarks by Provost Ben Polak, followed by Faculty & Administrator Panels

Yale Day of Data is a day-long event on September 20th (8:30am-7:00pm) that brings researchers together across the sciences and social sciences. It will draw from the experiences of faculty and administrators to explore the common themes and intersections linking data-intensive sciences. Challenges posed by the ever-increasing complexity of data, increased expectations from funders, and heightened attention to data as a research product, will be addressed. Following opening remarks by Provost Ben Polak, there will be three panels of faculty who will discuss the relationship with their research and data. Represented on the administrator panel will be Susan Gibbons (University Librarian), Len Peters (University Chief Information Officer), Carolyn Slayman (Deputy Dean, Academic and Scientific Affairs), and James Antony (Associate Provost), all of whom will provide perspectives on data at Yale. A short poster session will provide an opportunity for research groups to showcase interesting and innovative ways they are using and/or managing data within their labs.
