About the U-M Annual Data Science and AI Summit

The U-M Data Science and AI Summit is the largest annual data science and AI event on campus. This event brings together the U-M data science and AI research community and their external collaborators to build research vision and collaboration. It also showcases the breadth and depth of U-M data science and AI research, from theory and methodology development to the transformative use of data and AI to address scientific and societal challenges in all domains. The event is free for all attendees (U-M faculty, staff, and trainees, as well as industry, government and community members).

Call for Research Vision Talks and Poster Presentations

The Michigan Institute for Data Science (MIDAS) invites submission of abstracts for 1) research vision talks and 2) poster presentations, for the 2023 U-M Data Science and AI Summit that will take place on Nov. 13-14.

As the focal point of data science and AI at U-M, MIDAS facilitates the work of the broad U-M data science and AI research community, advances data science and AI methodologies and applications, and promotes the use of data science and AI to benefit society. The annual summit showcases the breadth and depth of U-M data science and AI research, and fosters ideas and collaborations that will lead to the next breakthroughs. 

Presentations at the summit should cover one or more of the following areas of data science and AI research:

  • Theoretical foundations, methodology and tools
  • Responsible data science and AI
  • Applications of data science and AI to address significant scientific and societal challenges

We invite submissions for the following:

  1. Abstracts for Research Vision Talks (20 minutes including Q&A).  Research Vision talks should discuss exciting research ideas, stimulate discussion within an interdisciplinary data science and AI community, and lay out collaboration opportunities. These talks should not simply be technical reports of projects. We especially encourage submissions from faculty members.
  2. Abstracts for Posters. The Posters can showcase research projects, data sets, software, or data/AI research tools. Posters with students as first authors will be automatically entered into the poster competition.
