NSF Federal Datasets Faculty Working Group
March 3, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
MIDAS – SPH I, Suite 7625
In response to a recent NSF solicitation (Dear Colleague Letter: Request for Input on Federal Datasets with Potential to Advance Data Science), the Michigan Institute for Data Science (MIDAS) invites Faculty to join a faculty working group to collaborate on a joint submission (deadline: March 31).
The NSF DCL working group will identify federal government data that will enhance and support the growing data science research community. We are being asked what federal data is of value for data science and machine learning that will have significant impact on science, engineering, education, and society.
If you have experience or interest in using federal datasets for your research, and would like to help shape how federal datasets can be preserved and utilized, please join this working group. We will discuss strategies for responding to NSF and potential funding (both federal and local) to support this effort. Please attend in person if possible.
