Beyond Big Data: Leading the Way

The ASA’s newest conference, the Symposium on Data Science & Statistics, will take place in Reston, Virginia, May 16-19, 2018. The symposium is designed for data scientistscomputer scientists, and statisticians analyzing and visualizing complex data.

The annual SDSS will combine data science and statistical machine learning with the historical strengths of the Interface Foundation of North America (IFNA) in computational statistics, computing science, and data visualization. It will continue the IFNA’s tradition of excellence by providing an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to share knowledge and establish new collaborations.

Offering sessions centered on the following six topic areas:
Data Science                                            Data Visualization
Machine Learning                                  Computing Science
Computational Statistics                      Applications

Key Dates:
December 5, 2017 – Contributed and E-Poster Online Abstract Submission Opens
