MIDAS has organized a weekly seminar series since 2015, which brought many prominent researchers to U-M as speakers and enabled research conversations both between these speakers and U-M researchers, as well as among U-M researchers. However, because of the nature of data science and AI research, the seminars cover a very wide range of topics and any particular topic is covered by a small number of seminars scattered throughout the year. In order to intensify research interactions that such seminars initiate, we will experiment with a new format in the 2022-2023 academic year. Instead of weekly seminars, we will collaborate with our faculty members to organize 3-4 research colloquia each semester. With this call, we invite faculty members to submit proposals for such colloquia.
