Yale Day of Data: Innovation through Collaboration – Call for Presentations

May 27, 2015

The Yale Day of Data 2015 will host a day-long event held on the Yale campus at Kroon Hall on September 18. The planning committee is seeking expressions of interest for presentations. The theme for this year aims to highlight research collaboration with partners across Yale.
Presentations will focus on data produced and analyzed in research disciplines of all kinds, including:
·       social, economic, behavioral, and political data
·       genomic data and sequencing data
·       health and healthcare data
·       geospatial data
·       textual and visual data
·       environmental data and indicators
·       experimental and computational scientific data
·       and more
The committee strongly encourages proposals that highlight and foster debate and discussion about:
·       collaboration across disciplines at Yale
·       best practices in data analysis, processing, management, storage, and sharing
·       using Yale’s institutional data to conduct research
Proposals for group or collaborative presentations are encouraged.
A short abstract (~300 words) of your presentation should be submitted to michelle.hudson@yale.edu by June 15, 2015. The intended audience of the symposium includes faculty, administrators, graduate students, postdocs, undergraduates, and research support professionals across Yale.
Two previous Day of Data conferences were held in 2013 and 2014, focusing on disciplinary challenges for working with data, and collaboration across academia, government, and industry. For more information about the previous events, including videos of presentations, slides, and posters, click here.
